Lump In The Right Breast In Children Aged 4 Years?
Ass I want to ask. My child is 4 years old … there is a lump like bone in his right breast … are those signs of cancer? About the explanation. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The incidence of breast cancer in people under 40 years old is actually very small, especially in children. Chances are, hard lumps (like bones) that appear near your child's breasts occur due to the following reasons:
Normal variation in the shape of the sternum
Skin infections, such as folliculitis, warts
Other skin enlargement, for example skin tags, hyperkeratosis, keloids, benign or malignant tumors
Benign or malignant tumors originating from other tissues, and so on
It should be clarified beforehand, how long have you watched the appearance of the lump in your child? How big is the size of the lump? Is it true that the consistency is hard? Does your child feel itching, pain, or other complaints? Does the lump keep growing in size?
If the lump has appeared for a long time and seems to have enlarged until now, we recommend that you consult your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be evaluated more closely with regard to his condition. The type of lump can be identified by a doctor through a regular physical examination, or maybe also with supporting tests, for example x-rays, biopsies, ultrasound, and so on. For the time being, you should not over-manipulate the lump, such as squeezing, pressing, gouging, or giving any treatment without a doctor's prescription.
Hope this helps ...
