I just had a mammogram in May and I feel a small lump in my right breast?
Hi--was that just a screening mammogram and was it normal? Any idea how long this lump has been there?

Yes just a screening and the results were normal. I just noticed it today and its very small (less then the size of tip of pinky).

OK. It certainly isn't at all likely that it's cancer if that were your concern here. No cancer would have gotten that large in just three months. It's most likely a benign cyst and nothing really to worry about but have your doctor take a look and get an ultrasound to determine that it is just a cyst.
