I'm 21 and have had a lump on my areola for about a year now. When I first found it my doctor just looked (he didn't exam it or anything) and said it was a cyst. It appears to have grown a little in size. The lump is hard, doesn't hurt, about the size of a pea, doesn't move, and is visible. Cancer runs Rapidly throughout my family also. My mother and I have recently changed doctors but I have yet to see her. I tried to get an appointment for when I go home but they're booked. I'm not sure if I should wait a month and a half to see her or if I should find a doctor around my school to look at it. Should I be concerned or not?
