Hello, birgita, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Breast tumors mean lumps in the breast. These lumps can be benign or malignant / cancer depending on the type. To determine the type and nature, a series of examinations must be carried out, starting from a direct physical examination by a doctor, extracting information about symptoms that occur, as well as supporting examinations such as ultrasound and biopsy (checking tissue samples under a microscope). Biopsy allows a doctor to know the nature of the cell and the origin of the cell, so that it can be known whether the cells in the lump are benign / malignant, from what tissue, to determine the treatment.
So, if there is a lump in the breast and the type or nature is unknown (whether benign or malignant), you should remain vigilant by checking with your doctor to determine the type and nature of the lump. If it is benign, non-intrusive, painless, it is okay if no therapy such as surgery is performed. However, if it turns out to be malignant, then there will be appropriate therapy.
Some types of lumps can enlarge due to hormonal influences and are affected by the menstrual cycle. Practicing a healthy lifestyle such as exercising regularly, maintaining an ideal body weight, avoiding drinking alcohol, and doing a BSE and SADANIS routine can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Also understand the signs of breast lumps that are suspected to be malignant, you can read more in the article "breast cancer".
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
