"popped" a Lump In My Breast

Last night in the shower, I was checking my breasts for any new lumps (probably don't need to, but I do anyway), and I found a semi-solid lump in the left one. I squeezed it painlessly and shortly after contact it felt like it popped - I felt it grow smaller and shrink from my grip. It did not hurt to squeeze.

Later that night, the left side of my chest and breast hurt, almost like a pain that you get after running too much. But by morning it was gone.

Tonight I popped another one in the right breast...Didn't hurt, and has yet to hurt 3 hours after splish-splashing in the tub.


Anyone think these mystery lumps are bad? Or are they chunks of fat?

These are chunks of fat.
You shouldn't be much concerned about it.
