The not-knowing is often the worst part! So, until you are seen by a doctor, please take a deep breath, slowly in and slowly out, until things begin to slow down to a more manageable pace.

A bump/lump can be caused by a great number of things, but we tend to immediately leap to cancer...Its perfectly normal to envision the worst-case scenario, but the worry only makes things much worse. I have found that borrowing trouble is never a good idea: Trouble tend to fins us without us drawing a target on our backs!

Good news? 80% of lumps prove to NOT be cancer!! Now, if you were in Vegas, you'd consider those pretty good odds, right? Cling to that until you hear differently, okay?!

Please let us know how your appointment goes, and what the doctor says. Come here often for information, support and tons of folks who have been there/done that and will understand. Meanwhile, please know you are in our thoughts and hearts! Though having a small one who needs you is bound to increase your worry, just having the little one there to hug everytime you need it, is also a definite plus!

Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

Glad you have made an appointment to see your doctor. As Rachael said, this can be many things, but its easy to get scared.

Let us know how you do and know you have friends here!

I think you are safe as mole is not a reason for breast cancer.
