    Isn't there a female doctor you can see?

    I don't know how old you are, but it's natural for developing breats to be lumpy.
    If there's breast cancer in your family then maybe it's an idea to get them checked out.
    I'm not an expert, but some cancer maybe hereditary. Don't worry about it, a lot of women find lumps and get checked out with nothing to worry about. <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    You could find out if your GP practice has a well woman clinic.

    Or you could look in the phone boon for the nearest family planning clinic.

    Whatever you do DO IT NOW!!!!!

    A friend of mine had a lump and found out that it was just a lymph npode, but you have to get it checked as soon as possible.

    Promise me you'll ring tomorrow.

    hey rachel... thats really serious

    i've read somewhere that breast cancer usually starts off as a painless lump in ur chest area.

    but don't get too worried... just make sure u see a doctor ASAP... coz risk levels at ur age (which i imagine is under 30) are much lower than risk for women over 40

    Glad to hear it, good luck for wednesday.

    Good luck Rachael. It's probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.

    Breast cancer at 19 is very very rare. Try not to worry. Even if it is cancer (which it isn't) it can be treated, normaly very succsessfully.

    My grany is 80, and has just had cancer for the third time, as she's fine. Its nothing to worry about. Until Wednesday, I recommend you listen to the lighthouse family, that'd cheer up a corpse

    Phew, sounds encouraging Rachael.

    just so u all know, it's a cyst in my right tit and i've gotta get it drained f it's still there in a month. the lump in my left tit keeps swelling up and going back down so we don't know what that is but if it's still there in a month i've gotta have a scan.

    Well that sounds promising Rachael. I guess if it was just getting bigger as opposed to going up & down it would be more worrying?

    Thanks for letting us know
