Thanks for the question on HealthReplies.com
Lumps or what is called a tumor in the medical world are sometimes worrying for the sufferer. However, not all tumors are malignant or cancerous. Some of the causes of benign breast tumors are:
Fibroadenoma Fibrocystic changes, namely changes in the breast due to hormonal changes that occur, for example during the period before menstruation. Simple cysts. Traumatic fat necrosis, which is a condition that occurs due to trauma to the breast. If necessary, you will be advised to do additional examinations such as ultrasound to determine the possible cause.
Meanwhile, some suggestions that you can do are:
Avoid squeezing or breaking the lump. If it hurts, take painkillers such as mefenamic acid or paracetamol to reduce the pain. Compress with a cold towel to help reduce swelling. Check regularly with your doctor. That's all the information we can convey. Hope it is useful
