Hi Jusmawati Said,
Breast lumps often cause anxiety for women. First of all the lump must be distinguished from the mammary gland, because at first glance when touched can give a similar impression. If it really is a lump, there are several characteristics that can indicate that the lump is benign, such as a lump that can be moved/not attached to the base, its consistency is soft, the surface is flat, and its size does not grow rapidly (there are some benign tumors that are influenced by hormones so that they are more palpable towards the end of the day). menstruation). Lumps with different characteristics, other changes such as the shape, appearance, and size of the breast and nipple are significant, changes in the skin of the breast, or a lump in the armpit is palpable, should be suspected of being malignant until proven benign by a doctor's examination.
If you feel a lump that has an uneven surface, or need to be confirmed again to the doctor for a thorough examination, including an ultrasound of the breast. Keep monitoring the progress of your lump with breast self-examination, take paracetamol if it is too painful according to the recommended dose (paracetamol is safe for pregnant women). Compressing the painful area with warm water can help.
