Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

2 weeks postpartum and noticed a lump

I'm 2 weeks postpartum and just noticed a rather large lump in my breast underneath my arm. it's only painful if i press on it, and feels like its not deep in the breast but closer to the top... the only lumps i've ever heard about are breast cancer, and now i'm petrified. what else could it be?? please help, i'm only 20, how could this happen?!
