I have a lump in my breast, is it cancer?

I feel a lump in my breast and I am worried sick that it may be cancer. It is located on the upper side towards my armpit. It is hard and shaped more like a triangle than round. About 1.5 centimeters. It is painless. I never noticed it before. Is it cancer?

80% of lumps are not cancerous and caused by benign breast conditions. But it is important to have any new lump checked out by your doctor. Especially if it has an irregular shape and is hard to the touch. Cancerous lumps are often painless. So consult with your doctor.
