Is A Lump On The Skin Of The Breast Dangerous?
I had chickenpox last month, then I was cured the next day I didn’t realize there was a red keloid-like lump on my smallpox mark, it happened that the pox was near my breast, and the lump was growing around there, I just realized when I felt itching and it turned out that there was a lump. , it’s dangerous or not
Hello, Marszanda, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps in the breast can be a condition of disorders of the skin of the breast (for example due to keloids, scar tissue due to a history of inflammation or previous injury, abscess / lump due to a collection of pus) or a lump originating from the breast tissue itself (benign breast tumors such as mammary fibroadenoma, fibrocystic, or other breast tumors to malignant tumors / breast cancer). To determine the cause, check with your doctor. The doctor will interview about everything related to your complaint, and perform a physical examination, especially on your breasts. Supporting examinations can also be done, such as ultrasound, mammography (x-rays for breast tissue), to biopsy (examination of tissue samples under a microscope).
Danger signs of a breast lump are: the lump is getting bigger and bigger, the skin of the breast changes in texture like an orange peel, there is a pull on the skin of the breast towards the chest wall, discharge from the nipple (blood or pus), the size of the right and left breasts is very different, and other symptoms such as weight loss and a lump on the armpit on one side. Do BSE / Check Your Own Breast (click the link) to check your breast independently and report to your doctor any findings you get. Do not scratch and squeeze the lump to prevent it from getting worse.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
