Does frequent self-examination and pressure on breast lumps help spread cancer in it.. because I notice a lump on my breast and I keep examining it and touch since 3 day and today when I wake up I feel its smaller !!

    Have you seen your doctor about it? I've never heard of spreading cancer by doing a self exam. Perhaps it's a cyst that will come and go (from my experience but don't think it was doing that from self exams). Make an appointment with your doctor as some testing may be needed to determine what it may be.

      I make an appointment with my doctor after 2 days..
