Breast Pain That Occurs In Teenage Boys?
Tonight, I want to ask, I have a 15-year-old brother. In recent months she often felt pain in one of her breasts and there was a slight bump on the inside of her breasts. What I want to ask is what symptoms include the disease and how to treat it? Thank you doctor …
Hello Herlina, thank you for the question.
Lump is an abnormal cell growth in the body. Lumps in the breast can come from breast skin such as lipomas, atheroma cysts (blockage of the skin's fat glandular channels), infections of the skin or breast tissue, etc. It could also be caused due to imbalance of the hormone testosterone and estrogen, causing gynecomastia. In gynecomastia, breast enlargement usually occurs in both breasts, with or without pain. It can also be caused by several other diseases such as malignancy in the breast, accumulation of fibroid tissue, or other conditions. Malignancy in the breast can also occur in men and is more common in old age, but it does not rule out also occurring at a young age, other risk factors are having a family history of malignancy, consuming estrogen, often being exposed to radiation, and having genetic disorders. To be sure, you should consult a surgeon. The doctor will carry out a thorough examination and carry out several additional examinations if needed, such as blood tests, ultrasound, CT scan, etc. as needed. Handling will be adjusted to the underlying cause. To reduce complaints, compress the lump in the breast with warm water 10-15 minutes 3-4 times a day, if the pain is felt to be very disturbing You can take painkillers that are sold freely in pharmacies or prescribed by doctors to reduce pain, increase consumption of water, eat healthy and nutritious food, and avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
