    So I found a lump on my breast a couple of weeks ago. It's getting more painful but no bigger. Should I go to the doctors?

    Yeah, of course. Get yourself to the GP as soon as you can and they'll check it out for you. There's loads of things that can cause it so they'll be able to point you in the right direction and help you out

    Only if you want to live.

    Please go to your GP. I have a 19 year old son. Since he was about 14 or 15 I have told him how important it is to check his testicles on a regular basis. He has been very good and has checked himself regularly. Two months ago he felt a lump. He didn't tell me as he didn't want to worry me. I made an appointment for him to see his GP while he was at college on his behalf as he told me he had a recurring sore throat, which he gets from time to time. GP felt the same lump. He then got a letter from the hospital which I saw so then he told me. Had to wait a month to go for an Ultrasound examination. Came back all clear. In between the GP seeing him and the ultrasound , he could no longer feel the lump. It hasn't come back, whatever it was, thank God. He had no pain or discomfort, so the fact you feel a lump AND have pain tells me to go and see your GP ASAP.

    Hope you have been to your GP by now. I had the same thing - had to have a biopsy and ultrasound but all came back clear. Very unlikely to be cancer but best to be safe!
