Breast Lump On The Left During Pregnancy?
I want to ask . My wife is pregnant for the first time at 6 months 5 days … at this time she has a high fever and her left breast is swollen and it looks like there is a lump in it and it hurts
Hello Dodi Zainudin,
During pregnancy there can be changes in a woman's breasts, due to changes in hormone levels in the body. Breasts will increase in size, nipples will increase, and milk production will occur. Lumps in the breast during pregnancy can be caused by several things, namely:
and so forth
Of course your wife needs a physical examination directly by the doctor to determine the type of lump that causes the complaints he experienced. In addition to physical examinations, investigations such as ultrasonography or biopsy may be needed under certain conditions.
Handling of lumps in the breast includes observation (monitoring changes in lumps without therapy - if the lump is benign), administration of drugs (if due to infection), or surgery. If there is a high fever, the wife can be given a paracetamol fever drug that is safe for pregnant women.
To help reduce pain, try to replace the bra to be not tight, use the right size, and you should use a bra without wire. You can compress the swollen breast area with warm water. Don't overdo the bumps. Keep the breast area clean. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
