Lump Feels Hard Accompanied By Chronic Pain In The Breast?
Good evening, I am 26 years old.
Hello Irene, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
Lumps found in the breast are benign / not dangerous and some are malignant / dangerous. But not all lumps found in the breast is a dangerous thing. There are several possibilities that cause a lump in the breast, namely:
Cysts, formed due to a buildup of fluid in the breast glands that are usually caused by hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle Fibroadenoma, are formed from breast tissue and connective tissue. This type of lump is most common at the age of 20-30 years Fibrocystic, formed from abnormal fibrous tissue so that it is more prominent than fat tissue. This type of lump is most common in 30-50 years. Intraductal papillomas, formed from fibrous tissue, glands, and blood vessels that form in the channel that carry milk from the mammary glands to the nipples of the lipoma, are formed from oils that grow slowly under the skin. These lumps can form anywhere on the body Cancer / malignancy, etc. All kinds of lumps in the breast as above have similar signs and symptoms. The difference is the cause of each type is different. Because not all lumps are dangerous malignancies, but it's a good idea to check with your doctor to see if the bumps are dangerous or not. You should quickly consult a doctor if signs such as:
Lump in the breast or near the breast, usually in the armpits, which still arise after menstruation is complete or more than 4 or 6 weeks. Lumps cannot shift when pressed or moved. Lumps are getting bigger and bigger. There are parts that clearly feel or look different than the surrounding area, in one or both parts of the breast. Changes in the shape, size, and contour of the breasts such as redness, hardening, or contracting such as orange peel, the breasts appear to be bruised for no apparent reason, nipples that enter or are not in normal position, or even nipples bleed. To make sure it is necessary anamnesis / further interviews by the doctor, a physical examination directly to the patient and if necessary will be carried out supporting tests.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
