Large Lump In The Breast Area?
Dear. About a month ago a large lump and pain appeared in my left breast, located just below the nipple. The nipples become somewhat pulled in and out thick viscous white liquid. Two weeks later I menstruate. Then after menstruation I check with the surgeon. Only interviewed and no physical examination, then immediately requested an ultrasound. The ultrasound results were: “heterogeneous density mass, irregular edge, in subareolar area, size 6×3.5×5.1 cm. Impression: mastitis. DD: mammae sinistra abscess”. I then met the surgeon again, the ultrasound was read and my breast was examined, he said only galactocele and not mastitis. I was then given medicine, but after 2 weeks, there has been no significant change. Pain has disappeared, the fluid does not come out, but the lump remains large. Now before menstruation again, lumps such as enlarged and tenderness again.
Hello, thanks for asking.
Lump in the breast is a condition that makes women anxious. Many possibilities for lumps in the breast, such as:
Galactocele mastitis Breast abscess Fibroadenoma breast cysts and the worst possible breast cancer Surely a cancer diagnosis is not so easily made. The doctor will first try to find a lighter diagnosis. From the picture given, there is no pus, no fever, and the skin is not red, the possibility of breast abscess is smaller. If the fluid has come out but the lump is still palpable, the lump enlarges in conjunction with menstruation, and tenderness during menstruation, then it is possible that the lump is caused by a cyst or fibroadenoma.
You can consult back to the treating doctor, or ask a second opinion from another doctor. Hopefully this answer can be of little help. Regards.
