My first question would be; For how long have you been lumping?

The other question is if the lump changes size during her menstrual cycle.

I would assess breast cancer since a breast lump is a risk factor for breast cancer.

The other thing I would assess is the productive history of the patient. This might also be a reason for the lump in the breast.

The levels of prevention for this patient I would recommend are; Eating a lot of fruits and vegetables, avoiding the use of birth control pills, being physically active, and also the patient to watch her weight. All this prevention will have a big impact on preventing the breast lump.
