Hello Nia,

Lumps in the breasts need to be watched out for. Does the lump hurt? Is it getting bigger fast? Is the lump affected by the menstrual cycle? Here are some of the causes of breast lumps:

Fibrocystic changes during menstruation, usually the lump will disappear after finishing menstruation Fibroadenoma: lump is not painful, easy to move, does not increase in size quickly, is benign Cyst: lump feels soft Breast infection: mastitis, abscess Breast cancer: lump feels hard , it is difficult to move, seems to stick to the chest wall, the lump grows bigger quickly, there are other changes in the breast such as the skin in the form of an orange peel, the nipple enters, discharge from the nipple. Therefore I suggest that you check with a surgeon who is an oncology consultant so that further tests can be done if necessary with breast ultrasound, mammography, MRI, and biopsy to determine whether the cause of the lump is malignant or not. Then the doctor can provide the right treatment for you. The treatment of lumps is adjusted to the results of the examination either by surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or hormonal therapy.

For the time being, you should not squeeze the lump, use a comfortable and not tight bra, and make it a habit to do regular breast self-examination after each menstrual period to detect abnormal changes in the breast.
