Patient :I am a 19 year old woman and I have found an oval lump in between my breasts. It is about 2cm in length and 1.5cm in width. There is slight pain when palpated and it is mobile. I found it Sunday night and I got it checked out by a school nurse practitioner who said I should wait it out because it was in a strange spot but it could be an enlarged lymph node. Should I wait it out a week like she suggested or should I get it checked out? Thanks!
