Good afternoon, I’m a 24-year-old woman. Since middle school I have had lumps in the left breast to the present, I have not yet checked myself about the condition because I have no complaints of pain and d.The right breast is also now growing lumps but smaller. And not long ago I felt a lump in the neck before my right, but it also didn’t hurt. what I want to ask is there any relation between the lump that appears in the breast with a lump in the neck? What checks should I do in the hospital to find out more diagnoses about the condition? Mhn the answer. Thank you …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a lump in your left and right breast can be caused by the same trigger, or different. This lump can be a normal thing to happen if it shrinks by itself after menstruation. Lumps like this in the medical realm are called fibrocystic changes. Its appearance occurs related to hormonal fluctuations around the menstrual cycle which causes an increase in the proliferation of parenchymal cells in the breast. In some cases, lumps due to fibrocystic changes can also be painful.
It could also be, a lump in your breast appear due to other reasons, such as breast skin infections (such as warts, ulcers, or acne), skin tumors, breast abscesses, breast cysts, fibroadenoma, breast cancer, lymphadenopathy, and so on.
Lumps in your neck can occur due to reasons related or not related to a lump in your breast. For example, a lump in the neck can occur due to lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes) that occurs due to the spread of inflammation or metastasis of cancer cells from the breast, or vice versa. However, it is also possible, a lump in your neck arising from other triggers, such as neck skin infections, skin tumors, lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes) due to other causes, lymphomas (lymph node tumors), enlargement of the thyroid gland, parotitis (mumps) cellulitis and so on.
Identifying the cause of a lump and its association with other lumps in the body is not enough to do just based on this kind of online consultation. You need to see the lump directly to the doctor or surgeon so that you can evaluate more deeply the possible cause. Follow-up examinations, for example ultrasound, x-rays, laboratories, mammography, biopsy, etc. doctors can also do as needed. Therefore, check yourself directly to the nearest health facility.
At this time, we urge you not to squeeze, massage, or give any treatment to the lumps that appear. Always keep yourself clean to avoid the risk of infection. Do not forget, always live a healthy lifestyle, so that the immune system is always maintained, and the potential for cancer cell growth can be suppressed.
Hope this helps ...
