I've just found a lump on my right breast going into my armpit, also experiencing pain in my shoulder and shoulder blade which sometimes radiates down my arm to my elbow. I've got family history of breast cancer so I'm concerned. I've got an appointment at a breast clinic on Thursday morning which I'm really nervous about

I have heard many doctors talk about self examination but it was never this informative. Also I feel suspicion while self-examination if i feel my mammary glands. This video was very helpful. Thank you
