Get it checked - I like you have had lumpy but not painful breasts for many years but earlier this year (only a few months after a screening mammogram) I was diagnosed with invasive ductal breast cancer. Caught early so recovery after treatment is positive but I thank the Lord for making me on this instance deciding I should check it out! If I had waited 3 years until the next screening mammogram god know how far advanced the cancer would have been nor what the prognosis would have been.  Chances are that you just have cysts but do get a proper diagnosis for peace of mind if nothing else
