since last July,i've discovered two lumps in my breasts,one in each.And because i'm only 20 years old,i'm trying to convince myself that it is just some harmless stuff since i'm kind of overweight.So, these last months,it started hurting just before my period begins and they grow larger,so touching my breasts was painful until my period starts.My family doesn't know anything yet,It's just that once it happened that i was worried sick about a black cyst in my back thinking it was skin  cancer then it was just a normal superficial cyst.I hope it's the same with those lumps.Since i'm undergoing so much pressure and stress this time of the year with exams and i don't want to waste time going to see a doctor.Any ideas or advice.

      I think you should start off with your gp. I have lumpy breasts and he normally checks them and when he isn't sure about something he refers me for an ultrasound to make sure all is ok.

    All I can say is go to yr doc, and get it checked out,  if it's hurting its a good sign as it could prob, be cysts,  as normally anything "nasty' doesn't cause pain. I've got breast cysts and they cause pain, had all the tests etc and just got to keep a eye on them,
