Lump In The Breast After Being Hit By A Child’s Kick?
Good morning, I want to ask. My son kicked my breast about 2 months ago when he slept, then suddenly the next morning there was a lump the size of a chicken egg. During menses in the first month the lump shrank and seemed to disappear. But after a few days I kicked my son again while sleeping, and a lg lump appeared, which gradually turned black and blue, and was followed by excruciating pain whose rhythm was erratic, if I read it, I didn’t experience the symptoms of breast symptoms. I feel a lump like bruising, pain, and an ingrown nipple. I wonder why this? Thank you for the time and the solution.
Thank you for the question.
In our breasts there are breast glands, fat tissue, blood vessels, lymph nodes, and skin. Trauma to your breasts can cause pain, swelling, inflammation, and even bleeding. The lump may be swelling of the tissue, or bleeding that has gathered together. The force of the kick can also cause deeper trauma and can even hit the chest muscles or bones. It's a good idea to consult this to a surgeon.
If what you are worried about are the symptoms of breast cancer, then of course this is different. Breast cancer is a growth of malignant cells that grows in breast tissue. Symptoms of breast cancer can include:
reddened breast skin
changes in breast shape and size
bleeding from the nipple
breast pain and swelling
the nipple is drawn inward
breast skin hardens and looks like an orange peel
Risk factors for a person to develop breast cancer include:
There are more women than men
Have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer
Never been pregnant
Giving birth at old age
Taking hormone drugs or birth control pills
Drinking alcoholic beverages
To determine whether this is breast cancer or not, a complete examination is required in the form of a medical interview, physical examination, and other examinations such as:
The advice that I can give you at this time due to breast trauma that you experienced:
wear a comfortable bra
if you feel pain you should take painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen
consult a doctor if the pain does not go away in a few days or the swelling does not decrease or gets more swollen.
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
