Lump In The Right Breast?
I am a nursing mother aged 24 years. There is a lump on the right side of my breast. Hard not moving and sick. What is that?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the breast lump that you experience can mean various things, including:
Mastitis or inflammation of the breast Breast cysts Fibroadenoma Lipoma Damage / death of fat glands Benign tumors of the mammary glands Growth of breast tissue due to hormonal changes Cancer
Actually there are many other possibilities, but the point you need to understand is all of these possibilities can not be ascertained if there is no direct examination. And as long as it hasn't been inspected, the possibilities can vary from very mild and can disappear on their own, to very heavy and require special handling. Therefore, we suggest that you check your condition with the surgeon, so that you can do a history, physical examination and support needed to clarify what the bump is.
What is clear is, there are characteristics of malignancy in your lump. Among the features of malignancy are hard lumps, pain, not moving, getting bigger quickly, removing pus or blood, and changing the appearance of the surrounding skin. So because these features already exist, you should immediately check it.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, keep breastfeeding your child, live a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarette smoke, maintain ideal body weight, and do regular exercise. So, hopefully answering your question.
