Pain In The Breasts Of A 7 Year Old Child?
I have a child aged 7,6 years, he complained that both of his breasts hurt when touched, the right breast looks like a pile of fat in the nipple area … why is that?
Breast pain can be caused by several possibilities, such as:
Pain in the breasts that occurs just before menstruation until menstruation occurs if your child has menstruation. Mammae fibroadenoma is a benign tumor that often occurs in women. Infection of the breast can also cause pain and lumps. Malignancy can also cause a painful lump in the breast.
A more complete history and direct examination is needed to differentiate what your child is experiencing. If needed, the doctor will perform additional examinations such as ultrasound for example. No need to be afraid to get your child checked, the sooner the condition is discovered, the sooner it will be treated.
I hope this helps.
