    Follow the attached link to a web site that will describe how to do a proper self exam. When you finish if you still think you have a problem tell you mum. It may be a bit embarrising but she is there to help, your girlfriend may be wonderful and great support for you but she probably can't get you to a doctor.

      How long ago do you mean by "ages," and how would you describe the lump you found?
