Treatment For Breast Lumps That Come Back After 2 Surgeries?
Ass. I was 16 years old, I had surgery for a benign breast tumor twice in a year, after surgery, about 2 months the lump appeared again. And now the lump appears again for the 3rd time, accompanied by pain. Will I have to have another operation or will my tumor go away on its own? Thanks
Lumps in the breast are generally divided into benign tumors and malignant tumors / breast cancer. Here are some of the causes of breast lumps:
Fibrocystic changes due to the influence of hormonal changes
Fat necrosis due to injury
It can also come from the skin or other glands such as lipomas, ulcers
Is the lump in the same place? If at this time the lump reappears in the breast, I suggest that you go to the oncology surgeon again so that you can do another examination to make sure the lump in your breast. The doctor will perform anamnesis, physical examination, and if necessary investigations with breast ultrasound, mammography, CT scan, and biopsy to determine the cause of the current lump. Furthermore, the doctor will provide further treatment in accordance with the results of the examination.
In general, the treatment of lumps in the breast due to benign tumors is surgery. If it is caused by fibrocystic medicine, it is enough to give drugs to reduce complaints. However, if there is malignancy / cancer, apart from surgery the doctor will also consider chemotherapy and radiation therapy options.
For now the most appropriate step is control to the oncology surgeon. And you shouldn't squeeze or massage the lump.
Hope it can help you,
