In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Doctor Kevin Stephens joins the Eyewitness Morning News to reveal 8 myths and facts about breast lumps.

Myth 1: a breast lump is probably cancer

Myth 2: if you have a lump but your mammogram is normal, you're done.

Myth 3: cancerous breast lumps are always painless.

Myth 4: if you find a lump while breastfeeding, it can't be cancer.

Myth 5: if you're young, a breast lump can't be cancer.

Myth 6: a small lump is less likely to be cancer than a large lump.

Myth 7: if you feel a lump soon after a mammogram, it's ok to wait another year.

Myth 8: a lump is probably harmless if there's no breast cancer in your family.
