    I understand that finding a new breast lump can be concerning. Breast lumps can be caused by many things, and while many lumps are not cancerous, it's very important that you get any new lump evaluated by a healthcare professional. This is especially true if the lump is different from others you may have felt, if it feels firm or fixed, or if it's associated with other changes in the breast such as dimpling, nipple inversion, or skin changes. You should make an appointment as soon as possible with a healthcare provider, who can perform a physical examination and may also recommend additional testing such as a mammogram or ultrasound. Please don't delay seeking medical attention.
