My left breast has a small particle when I touch it. When I touch it doesn’ t move to another place, it feels like part of the vein, and it stays in that vein. Could that be lump? How do you know when something is a lump? I am 26 years old female with no children

Hi Sho,

If you regularly examine your breasts (once a month, preferably after the periods) you will know what is new and what should not be there. If there is a new mass of more than 5 mm diameter and is still present after the next period, see a doctor about it. Remember, the vast majority of lumps are benign.
