Lump In The Left Breast And Feels Pain?
Tonight, I want to ask. Why does my left breast hurt and there are small lumps when I check while lying down but when I check standing in front of the glass there is nothing strange. Please explain, thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps in the breast can mean many things, and not all of them mean a dangerous condition. Among the possibilities are:
Abrnomal growth of fat tissue or lipoma
Swollen lymph nodes
In your case, there is no need to be confused if the lump is only palpated while sleeping, because there are indeed some lumps that have just been palpated in a certain position. That is why there is a so-called breast self-examination (Check Your Own Breasts) as an early examination for breast lumps that require a person to stand up straight, bend down slightly, lie down and put his hands on his hips. If you feel a lump in one of these movements, then you should check yourself to the doctor.
In addition, you should also be aware of the characteristics when the lump is dangerous, such as feeling hard, growing rapidly quickly, changing the appearance of the surrounding skin, releasing fluid and pain. If this happens, there is no need to hesitate anymore and consult a doctor immediately. For now you do not need to panic, compress the painful part with a warm compress, and take over-the-counter pain medication by reading the rules of use listed and getting enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
