I have a huge visible lump on my breast and my period lasted for 10 day, usually it’s about 7, do you think I should be concerned?
Hi @ladybluehawaiian, welcome to Connect.
Here’s an excerpt from a Mayo Clinic article
“If you find a breast lump or other change in your breast, you might worry about breast cancer. That’s understandable — but remember that breast lumps are common. Most often they’re noncancerous (benign), particularly in younger women. Still, no matter how old you are, it’s important to have any breast lump evaluated by a doctor, especially if it’s new and feels different from surrounding breast tissue.”

Most breast lumps aren’t cancer, but you should see your health provider. Please let us know what you find out.
Get the lump checked out, if only for piece of mind.

Hi @trainwreck54, I haven’t taken a moment to welcome you to Connect. Thanks for joining the community. Are you a breast cancer survivor?
I would get it checked out to be safe
