I do know how it feels though, to discover the lump.
I found mine a few years ago in a most unglamorous way; one day I was scratching my left armpit. It makes me giggle a little, but that really is how I found it. It felt like a tiny, hard little pebble at the top of my breast. I kept picturing the scene in Finding Nemo when they clog the filter with aquarium gravel.
I was immediately terrified. I was only 25 and had two very small children. I had an appointment two days later for my routine pap smear, so I waited to ask the doctor because I had already lined up a babysitter that day. Waiting for that appointment was horrible. I kept asking my husband to touch it to verify that it wasn’t just my imagination. It was tender to the touch and most definitely there. How could I not have noticed this before?
