Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are several possible causes of breast lumps, including:
Mammary fibroadenoma, which is a benign tumor in the breast, most commonly occurs in women aged less than 30 years, in the form of a solid mass, round, can be moved, not painful, and can disappear alone / settled / enlarged
Mammary fibrocysts, which are breast changes due to hormonal changes during the monthly menstrual cycle, usually occur in women aged 20-40 years, generally in both breasts, the size and pain increases during menstruation, complaints subsided after menstruation is complete
Intraductal papilloma, which is a small wart-like lump on the wall of the milk duct near the nipple, accompanied by a clear discharge (serous) from the nipple that can be accompanied by blood, usually in women aged 45-50 years
Mastitis, which is an infection of the breast that is often experienced by breastfeeding mothers, risk factors: blocked milk ducts due to the breast not being emptied while breastfeeding, symptoms: breast being reddish, warm, and localized pain
Breast cancer, usually occurs at the age of 30 years until menopause, symptoms: hard lumps, unclear boundaries, without / with pain, changes in breast skin become wrinkled like orange peels or there are hollows, nipples are attracted, accompanied by lymph node lumps in the area around the armpit, the nipples release fluid that can be mixed with blood
We recommend that you check yourself directly with your doctor or oncology subspecialist doctor for proper evaluation and treatment. The doctor will do anamnesis, physical examination, and supporting examinations according to indications found, for example mammary ultrasound, mammography (usually in women who have menopause), or biopsy.
