Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In most cases, a painful, recurring lump in the breast does not represent a dangerous condition. This lump often appears due to changes in fibrocystic breasts, which is a mass originating from the enlargement of glandular cells in the breast parenchyma affected by hormonal fluctuations just before menstruation. Lumps that appear due to fibrocystic changes in the breast are not potentially malignant, and will shrink on their own after menstruation is over. However, it does appear that fibrocystic changes in the breast that are large enough can sometimes trigger breast pain and swelling which is quite disturbing in some sufferers.
It is not clear what causes fibrocystic changes in the breast. However, many experts suspect this condition is related to hormonal fluctuations in the body, especially the hormone estrogen. The diagnosis of fibrocystic changes in the breast is generally sufficient based on an interview and a regular physical examination. However, in some cases, where the symptoms that appear are not typical, additional examinations may also be required, such as mammography, ultrasound, FNAB biopsy, breast biopsy, and so on. If it is true that your complaint arises due to changes in fibrocystic breasts, then this condition does not need special treatment. Unless, if the lump looks very enlarged and also disturbing, the doctor may consider aspiration, excision (surgery), administration of drugs, and also hormonal therapy to overcome it.
Not only fibrocystic changes in the breast, but also, the lump in your breast that you experience appears due to other causes, such as fibroadenoma, breast abscess, breast cyst, mastitis, tumors or skin infections (for example folliculitis, sebaceous cysts, lipomas), breast cancer, and so on. .
We recommend that, if the lump continues to appear and recurs very often, you should check your complaint directly with a doctor or surgeon. With a comprehensive examination, doctors generally can identify the best treatment that needs to be done.
As an initial treatment, you should not exert pressure on or manipulate the lump in your breast. Always keep your breasts clean, namely by bathing regularly and wearing clean bras and clothes. Limit consumption of instant foods, preservatives, junk food, and eat more organic foods, vegetables, fruit and other foods that are rich in antioxidants. Do not forget, do breast self-examination (be aware) periodically to detect early potential disease and malignancy around the breast.
Hope it helps ..
