Hi Alfini,


Lumps in the breast can vary in shape, size, consistency, mobile (movable or not), pain or not, changes in the skin around the lump, and the location of the lump in the breast. Breast lumps can cause differences in breast size, breast shape changes, and palpable with breast self-examination (BSE).


Here are some differential diagnoses / diseases that can cause symptoms of breast lumps:

Mammary fibroadenoma
Abscess
Cyst
Lipoma, fat necrosis
Intraductal papilloma
Breast cancer

Lumps in the breast are generally divided into benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) lumps. This requires a direct examination by a doctor, as well as supporting examinations such as mammography, ultrasonography, MRI, or biopsy to establish the diagnosis. Lumps that persist for more than 2 months, enlarge rapidly, feel very hard and cause indentations in the skin of the breast, discharge / fluid from the nipples (not breastfeeding), nipples are tucked inward, bumps in the armpits are characteristics of breast lumps that need to be aware of and you should immediately see a doctor.


Management of breast lumps varies depending on the cause. If the cause of the infection is sometimes the administration of medication therapy can help or do an incision (making incisions in the skin) to remove pus in the breast. For benign lumps if the size is small and does not interfere with the patient's functional development can be observed first. If the lump is suspected cancer or cancer therapy can include surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
