Breast lumps are relatively easy to find through regular practice of breast self-exams. A lump feels noticeably different than the surrounding areas of the breast. They usually feel hard, firm, knotty or lumpy. Softer-feeling, normal fatty tissue will surround this knot. If you find a lump, don't panic. Four out of five lumps end up being benign, or non-cancerous, but it is still essential that you see a doctor.
