Discovering a lump can be alarming. Your mind may race down a rabbit hole of possible causes – including the question “is this cancer?”
Although it’s natural to be concerned, it’s important to stay calm as most lumps are harmless with no cause for concern. However, remaining aware of changes in your body and seeking support from your GP ensures that if the lump is cancer, then a diagnosis can be made at the earliest possible stage.
While most lumps are harmless, it is important to remain vigilant and contact your GP if you are ever unsure.
