      I found a lump in my breast when I was 19 years old. It was a calcium build up and medication broke it up within a week.

      Roughly about 75% of lumps in the breast are benign (not cancer or harmful) so tell your friend not to worry until she gets a diagnosis.

      If it turns out to be cancer there are some great new medications for this.

      But tell her to get a diagnosis.

    My neighbour aged 39 died from cancer Friday week, tragic and painfull story, left behind a young family, everything to live for, I think it is important that both men and women get checked regularly

    It's always good to get anything abnormal checked.

    Men die from breast cancer also. When a man feels a lump in his breast he tends to ignore it. At times some men think breast cancer is a woman's disease and can't affect him.

    I have had two breast biopsies in my life, both negative.  The first occurred when I was in my early thirties.  The second occurred this month.  I am now 59 years old.  My doctor told me that 90% of these are benign, even with my family history, which is filled with cancer cases.  If your friend does not have cancer in her family, the odds are 95 to 1 that it is benign.  Still, she needs to have it checked right away.  I know there is a tendency to want to pretend it is not there; I know because I just went through it.  Don't do that.  Get it checked, and either relieve your mind by knowing it is not cancer, or have it treated properly now. Hope this helped.

    You should always get lumps checked, most of the time they are nothing, but an early catch could save your life!
