Hello, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Breast lumps are the growth of other tissues in the breast. Breast lumps can be divided into benign lumps and malignant lumps (cancer). Most breast lumps are benign lumps. Nevertheless, it is important for women to still check themselves if they find a lump in the breast. Breast lumps can be caused by: breast cysts, mastitis, breast abscesses, fibroadenomas, breast fibrocysts, fat necrosis, intraductal papillomas, and breast cancer.
In general, to diagnose breast lumps requires a series of doctor examinations ranging from physical examination, mammography, ultrasonography, MRI, and biopsy.
Biopsy is the act of taking tissue samples from the lump to be examined under a microscope. Biopsy is an examination that aims to confirm the diagnosis of breast lumps. Not all cases of breast lumps will be biopsied. If from the information about the lump the sufferer feels, a doctor's physical examination, and an ultrasound / mammography / MRI examination are impressed that the lump is a benign lump, then a biopsy may not be needed. However, there are also doctors who will recommend a biopsy in these cases to better determine the cause (benign / malignant). In general, a biopsy will be recommended for women who have lumps that may be malignant lumps from symptoms / complaints experienced by patients such as lumps getting bigger, lumps aching and palpable solid, breast size increases or changes shape, breasts become hard, breast swelling , itchy nipples, nipples discharge, nipples pressed into the breast, breast skin like orange peel, or the presence of a bump in the armpit.
If you have breast lumps, you should immediately see a surgeon. The doctor will ask further questions about the symptoms related to this lump, examine your breasts, and recommend other examinations as mentioned above. The doctor will determine the need for a biopsy from information and other supporting examinations. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will also be able to determine further treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
