Lump in breast duct

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in breast duct


Avatar n tn The ultra sounds shows a lump in a duct and I have been told by other women that such a lump is usually cancer. Behind it is another smaller mass and both will be removed on Jan6th. This will be my 7th biopsy! I have atypical ductal hyperplasia in that same breast. Needless to say, I am very worried about this one.
Avatar f tn 11 days ago while showering, I felt a tube like lump on my left breast. I went to the doctors and they said it is a blocked duct? They said they will just watch it, and send me to have an ultrasound done. I have not had a baby, nor am i pregnate. My youngest is 7 so far from breastfeeding! I am wondering, is this normal??? A year ago, i found a cyst in this breast. I had an ultrasound and they said it is a simple cyst?.
Avatar f tn So I found a lump in my breast. I am 30+4. Not sure what to think. It's not painful to touch so it can't be a blocked milk duct. I see my ob on Monday. Just worried.
Avatar m tn My wife has a lump in her breast that is very sore when you move against it. This she noticed after I new son came. He is only three weeks old now. She is not breastfeeding at all. What could this be? At first she used to have high temperature but now it seems to be better but the sore lump is still there.
Avatar n tn Im breast feeding my 2 month old daughter and 3 weeks ago i noticed a lump in my right breast it isnt sore, its firm, dosent change shape, about 1cm long and i have been to the doctor and they just felt it and said come back in a month. A month just seems so long as nothing seems to get rid of it. Can anyone tell me whats likely to be wrong? Or give me some advice?
Avatar n tn The others are what it looks like on imaging. In many cases, a doctor can feel pretty confident in what the lump feels like but will order imaging (mammogram and/or ultrasound) to confirm his suspicions or to make certain that there is nothing that will require further evaluation. If anything shows up on the mammogram or ultrasound that cannot be explained, further evaluation will likely be recommended.
622762 tn?1222426068 my daughter gave birth 11 days ago yesterday she felt a lump about the size of an almond in her breast,it is not painful do you know what it might be,also she had a breast exam a year ago the first of October,she does self-breast exams
4203386 tn?1351014395 I recently found a lump about 2 months ago Ive been thru 2 periods with it. I did end up going to a breast surgeon he suggested waiting 3 more months to see if it will go away bc he believes it to be a clogged lobe/duct in the gland tissue(?), otherwise he will do a breast MRI. Can milk really linger that long in a lobe if I stopped awhile back? What can I do to make it go away?
Avatar n tn Perhaps the doctor could explain this better to you in a way that makes sense to you and your mother. It may be just mean a mass in a duct ( as opposed to being in a lobe) that needs additional investigation. I would think the operation would be removal and biopsy. This is the only way to be sure if the lump is benign or not. Statistically, most lumps end up being benign, and I certainly hope this is the case with your mother.
9038169 tn?1401321228 I just recently found a large lump in my right breast, It was painful at first so i went to the ER, they told me it was a normal fibroid and not to worry, now i get nerve pains in my nipple and a greenish discharge. Im worried but I am scared the DR will think im exaggerating or something....
Avatar f tn Hi, Many women ,when they stop breastfeeding,they notice a lump in their breast and often times it could just be a clogged milk duct or maybe a cyst. It's really hard to say what this lump could be,but as your doctor suggested keep applying warm compresses and see how it goes. I hope that your upcoming ultrasound, will show a benign finding. Best wishes....
Avatar n tn According to the radiology dept at the hospital, surguery is required for a biopspy ( needle biopsies are not available for use when the lump is located in the duct). Is that true? Also, is there increased risk if the lump is in the duct?? If it is cancer will it be necessary to remove the breast or only the lump and lymph nodes??
624160 tn?1224086080 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.
Avatar f tn I'm 19 weeks pregnant and found a lump in my breast.. It's about the size of a bb and really hard had husband feel and he says he can feel it move a little but I can't it feels very fixed to one spot! Any other pregnant moms have this! I'm so scared!

Avatar n tn My question has to do with what I am nowfeeling on my right breast. I don't feel a lump but seem to be able to trace a duct or tube in roughly the same spot as was on my left breast. Seems to go from the upper outer quadrant to above the nipple. Should I be able to feel anything like this? Or, does that fact that I can feel it indicate there is something hard inside it? It does not seem to be a lump like what I had on the left.
Avatar n tn You can also check with your local hospital social service department as to what they may have available in your community for someone in this situation where a breast lump needs to be further evaluated. Another possible resource is the Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund. Through the Fund, financial support is made available to community-based programs providing education and outreach to medically underserved women.
Avatar n tn This is usually a symptom of breast cancer. While benign breast lumps -- sacks of fluid or lumps of fat, move with the breast, cancers defy gravity. Thickened or dimpled skin is a sign of a lump that's unmoveable -- and a cause for concern. What to do: First, remember that 90 percent of women who catch breast cancer early survive. But to be one of them, you must get a proper diagnosis and treatment. See your doctor. She will examine you thoroughly, then follow up with a mammogram.
Avatar f tn Then was able to pump a half ounce.frim.each breast x1. I know have a hard lump in my rt breast at roughly the 3 o.clock position. It is tender to touch but not red or warm. Have done a few warm xompresses with no resolution. Any suggestions?
171768 tn?1324233699 I had the same symptoms you are describing with high fever but also a reddish streak along the clogged milk duct ending in a lump. It was mainly the streak that caused the doctor to talk me out of natural remedies including hot showers and cabbage leaves. She said it had to be treated right away because the risk of it turning into an abcess was too high. Not sure if you see anything reddish but I understood back then you should always see a doctor within about 24 hrs.
Avatar f tn I had my lil girl on the 10th n i sometimes breast feed but sometimes she just wont take me... but this mornin i woke up n theres a hard spot in the top of my breast n its so sore... could it just be like a cloged duct or should i pump to releive myself?
689528 tn?1364139441 I just noticed this morning that I have a nice sore hard lump on my left breast...well closer to my armpit. I think I remember this with baby #1. Does this sound like a blocked duct? I've been massaging it since I've noticed it and I will massage it as I'm feeding her. I feed her laying down at night so I hope that's not why. This is also my breast that has a crazy super fast let down so I'm wondering if she just isn't emptying my breast enough. Any other ways to care for it?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn it could even be a milk duct filling up. As a rule, caner in the breast is not painful. Yet, you have all my sympathy about being nervous, as I think we would all be, especially while pregnant.
