Common Questions and Answers about Lump in breast in child

lump

I have a lump in my left breast. It is located at the 12 o clock position and is approximately 2cm in measurement. It is at the top of the breast and is shaped oddly. It is hard and does not move. It is not smooth. I also have on the same breast a pink spot - sort of like a pimple - only flat on the lateral side of the breast. No nipple discharge or rashes or skin changes. I have felt this lump for sometime now and the pink bump has been there for over a year.
If breast cancer runs in the family, breast cancer screening should be started 10 years earlier from the age of the first degree relative diagnosed with breast cancer. About 10% of breast cancer is hereditary. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) data showed that the incidence of breast cancer is about 1.9% in the age group of 20 to 34 years in 2001-2005. I agree with your decision to have the lump examined by your doctor.
I have found a hard, round (about an inch and a half in diameter) lump in my left breast/underarm. It's not smooth. There is no such lump in the right breast. When I lay on my side and my breast is flat, you can clearly see the lump underneath the skin. In addition, the same breast has been extremely itchy for the past few weeks...not the nipple, just the breast tissue (which is what led me to examine the breast and discover the lump).
My wife is breastfeeding and has a (sore)lump in her breast (close to the aereola)that will not go away. After pumping or breastfeeding she has a tingling/burning sensation that lasts 30-45 minutes. She has tried heat/ice massage, hot water baths, epsom salt bath, ultrasound, lecithin, etc.. and nothing is making it go away. We have tried to contact lactation dept. at the hospital, ob/gyn, and other health professionals and no one seems worried.
Hi, I too am suffering from a lump left over from mastitis. Was in hospital for 3 days a week after having my third child. Needless to say the mastitis was bad enough but a year and a half later i still have a lump under my right nipple. The lump itself is always there and the nipple is always inverted. When my period is close to arriving the lump gets tender and I get shooting pains through it.
My daughter is 10 years old. She recently was complaining of pain in her left breast. I found a small lump, just the size of a pea. When I took her to the child specialist she told me it is just a breast nodule and she has started developing breasts. There is nothing to worry. It is thelarche. I am still concerned about it. Can you please clarify it?
I have had a sore area in my breast for almost a year now which has a lump which varies in size depending on the time of my cycle. It is larger and more painful from ovulation till my period.I saw a doctor in May who could not feel it and advised a mammogram but only because I was concerned. I then discovered I was pregnant (I subsequently lost the baby) so I could not have the mamm.
I am 27 years old and have found a hard pea size lump in my right breast almost in my armpit area. It is painful and tender to the touch. Also I have had discharge from my nipples that is a yellow/green color, I had a child almost 2 years ago and don't know if it is possible that I may still be producing milk. I have not breastfeed in over a year. The discharge is from the same breast were I have found the lump. Is this something that I should be concerened about?
) Most breast lumps are benign.
A breast and armpit ultrasound may be useful if this lump does not disappear in a week or so. Mammogram at this stage may be difficult to interpret because you are likely to have enlarged milk glands at this point. All the best, and God Bless you both!
my daughter has a lump in the centre of her left nipple and feels sold, it is painful for me to touch, what could this be?
One is under my chin and the other is in my throat and quite painful. Any ideas what they are? I also have a pea sized lump in my cheek which has been there since I was a child. It has never bothered me and the Dr said it could be just a small stone. My mother had breast cancer a while ago and I am in the dodgy area but my grandfather also died from cancer of the throat and i am not just curious.
My 19 month old daughter has the same thing. She has one breast larger with lump. It seems to be going down with each passing month. I think it is just left over hormones in her system from me nursing her. That is the idea I got from the doctor when she was smaller. She said it is called witch's milk and it is strictly hormonal and is would resolve on it's own and she seems to be right. I would contact the doctor although if it doesn't seem to improve over the next several months.
I am 45 and had a hysterectomy after the birth of my last child in 1987 so it is not pre menstration related. In April I can feel swelling, thickening ropey like area in the breast and it's very tender to touch. It's on the side of the breast facing my armpit. When I move the breast I can feel pain and I'm aware of it all of the time. My other side of the breast feels nothing the left side. Does anyone know what could be?
Sometimes when a I bump it against something or when I pick up my child or sleeping, the shap pain shoots thourgh it. I've heard that breast cancer in most cases arent painfull, but do I still need to worry? Ive never had these pains before. I dont feel it all the time just when I bump it. Im 33 and had a baby about 2 years ago. Ive only breast fed for about a month. Do I need to worry?
It started in the last few months of nursing my first child, continued after nursing, during my second pregnancy and again during nursing my second child. A few months back upon weening my second child the pain in this area became much more intense and then returned to the "normal" level upon completion of nursing. I have had two ultrasounds...the first was inconclusive as I was still nursing and all they could see were the milk ducts, however, in the second they fould a cyst.
I have so much breast tissue in both breast which has all my adult life made me nervous but when I got this painful lump under my arm pit then i kinda felt deformed. I get them off and on some big some small. They get really bad when I have a baby. This huge mass will grow under my arm pit. HUGE and painful. They have told me the same thing it is just extra breast tissue. But that is some scary breast tissue. I would love to know more about what causes this.
I am 31 yrs old, and have 1 child. For the past year know, I have had a lump under my armpit, and causes no pain, or discomfort, and had a doc. look at it four months ago. He said looked like lymphnoids, did a follow up ultrasound today, the techs and docs. at the hospital comfirmed today that it is a swollen muscle in my armpit. I am not sure that sounds right, concidering that just four months ago, my Surgeon says that it was lymphnoids, and that we will make sure it does not grow.

Hormones have a lot to do with the variations in the size of cysts and also the discomfort that they cause. This usually follows in some way your menstrual cycle. Regards ....
Call your doctor and have him check it out. Any abnormal lumps in your breast should be asked about just to be safe.
I felt my underarm and found a pea size lump. I did a self breast exam and do not feel any other lumps. On Thursday the 24th, I did shave my underarm, with a week old razor. The lump is small, hard, and I don't have to press down on my skin to feel it, the skin feels somewhat raised, but the lump also feels alittle deep. However the lump isn't noticable to the eye. It does hurt when I touch it and for a little while afterwards, but then pain goes away, at times it can be alittle itchy.
Hi guys for about 3 weeks i have had a stabbing pain in my right breast. M breast is really painfull ive had to stop wearing a bra. The stabbing paing pain is not constant but when i get it it is really painful. I am currently 23 weeks pregnant ive contacted my midwife and she seems to think its ot pregnancy related. Ive also checked myself for any lumps and havent found any, but i am really worried as it could be something which may affect the life of my unborn child.
Now, believe me, I am not a hypochondriac and I dread even going to the doctor again. But I am having symptoms in my breast. I am still nursing my child, and this isn't mastitis. For six months I've had stabbing pains in my left breast. I also feel some pain radiating down my arm now and then. I also feel this heaviness, like sometimes it is painful to breathe. I even went to the ER (first time ever) in April, thinking I was having a heart attack.
Im 25 years old and I just discovered a breast lump in the medial aspect of my left breast. Im really freaking out because of the cancer thought. It is about the size of a pea and I do not think it moves. I do not have any other symptoms. I have had one child and have no family history or breast cancer. I went to the doctor and she said it was more than likey hormonal but scheduled me an ultrasound.
I am 24 yrs old and I have had benign lumps in my right breast for about 4 years. I was first told it was a cyst and will go away or cause me no pain if I didn't have them removed. In October of 2008, when I was pregnant with my first child they started to grow. I've biopsied both in 2008 and they were benign and painless. Over the last 3 months or so they have started to ache and it's become uncomfortable to wear bras or even be intimate with my husband.
From my experience (I work in untrasound doing breast exams everyday), a 2cm palpable breast lump is most often a simple cyst. 2cm is actually quite big. If it turns out to be a cyst, the dr will likely give you the option to have it aspirated. It's very easy. That is done with u/s as well. They just numb the area, stick a needle in, and s u c k the fluid out. No pain. When you go for the u/s you can watch the screen yourself.
My cousin who is a breast cancer survivor, was diagnosed 6 months after giving birth to her first child at the age of 32. So, you can understand my concern.
And another just said we do all kinds of breast procedures come in... Will update when I know more. And it is called axillary breast tissue... Still wondering if my insurance wil cover any of this since it is painful...
I have a had a large lump in my left breast since I was 8yrs old, maybe ever younger. It does not seem to grow, if so it is slow growth. I had my first child a year ago and breast fed her and still am breastfeeding every now and then, only from the same breast that has the lump. Since then my breast has obviously lost its "firmness" and I can feel the lump even better. I have been reading online about the symptoms of breast cancer and am worried that I have it..
