Hi Pusvita,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There may be a lot of lumps in the breast. To distinguish them, it is necessary to do a physical examination directly by a doctor, or also assisted with several supporting tests, for example biopsy, mammography, ultrasound, laboratory tests, CT scans, and so on. Need to be clarified beforehand, what checks have you been through to find out the cause of the lump in your breast?


Lime buildup in the breast that the doctor is referring to may be breast calcification. This condition occurs when there is a calcium deposit in the breast parenchymal tissue. The cause of calcium deposition can be due to the aging process, inflammation, or a history of mechanical injury around the breast before. Clinically, often this condition does not show obvious palpable lumps. If any lumps appear, then the size of the lump is usually so small that it is often not realized by the sufferer. In most cases the diagnosis of breast calcification is made accidentally, for example when carrying out a mammography examination during a medical check-up or to detect certain diseases.


Breast calcification can be mild, but it can also indicate more serious conditions, such as breast cancer (malignant tumors). With mammography examination also these two conditions can generally be distinguished. If calcifications in your breast appear as large vaginal discharge points (macrocalsification) on mammography, these conditions are often not dangerous and do not require special treatment. However, if your breast calcifications are small and form a certain pattern that indicates the direction of malignancy (macrocalsification), the doctor can also direct you to undergo a biopsy to determine the best treatment that needs to be done. To overcome this calcification, doctors will often recommend that you undergo surgery or be in conjunction with other therapies, such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy.


Regarding your question, we recommend that you consult directly with your doctor or surgeon. Comprehensive examination needs to be done to distinguish breast lumps that arise due to breast calcification or due to other causes, such as infection (abscess), benign or malignant tumors (cysts, fibroadenoma, ductal cell carcinoma), lymphadenitis (swollen lymph nodes), breast fibrocystic changes skin infections (folliculitis, acne), and so on. With the determination of the correct diagnosis, of course the handling can be done on target.


Hope this helps ...
