Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Lumps in the breast can vary. To get the right treatment it is necessary to know the cause of the complaint, it is necessary to dig a history and direct physical examination. Some possibilities include:
Fibroadenoma Fibrocystic breast cysts, growth of fibrous tissue which is generally associated with the menstrual cycle Intraductal papillomas, benign tumors in the mammary ducts Mastitis Lipoma Breast cancer For a while you can do include:
Do not squeeze or manipulate the lump Perform routine BSE examination Routine monitoring of the size of the lump Maintain a healthy diet Increase drinking water If your pain can be compressed with warm water to help relieve pain Generally suspicion toward cancer or malignancy is when changes in lump size increase rapid or changes in color and texture of the skin that can be accompanied by rapid weight loss without changes in diet and activity.
If your complaint does not improve or you are worried you should consult a surgeon for further examination and treatment related to your condition
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
