Common Questions and Answers about Lump in breast during breastfeeding

lump

Avatar f tn During my first trimester of pregnancy I suddenly discovered a large 3.5cm lump in my breast. The ultrasound showed it to be solid with fibroadenoma characteristics. I was scheduled for a 6 months follow up. The lump remained unchanged until after delivery, and increased size with lactation. At this time, the ultrasound showed the lump to be 4.7cm and a complex cystic mass. A biopsy was recommended.
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 Lumps during breastfeeding may be caused by blockage of ducts which carry the milk from deep in the breast to the nipple openings. Milk that builds up behind the blockage causes the lumps and makes the breast sore. Warm compress may help provide relief. Gently massage the lump toward the nipple during and after feeding and cold packs after a feed may help relieve pain and inflammation.
Avatar f tn 2 weeks after i started breastfeeding i felt pain on my left breast and 3-4 days after pain started i felt a pretty large lump in the same area. I was checked by the Ob/gyn a few days later and he suggested massages and warm compresses for 2 -3 days thinking of trapped milk. After doing the appropriate massaging, it did not seem to improve. It also became hard. He ordered an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn I took a ovulation test during the lumps occurrence which turned out positive. I got pregnant that month. The lump did not persist during the pregnancy or during breastfeeding. I did however have a complicated pregnancy due to a "sensitive uterus" I contracted from 28 to 38 weeks. The birth was induced but relatively normal with no complications. After breast feeding my cycle continued and the lump came back mid cycle.

Avatar m tn During the time I was breastfeeding, I had a mammogram for some lump I felt in my right breast. That was fine but the doctor order I have a mammogram then due to family history of breast cancer and I was 40. Some calcifications were found in the left breast. I then had it removed and the biopsy shown it was benign. Following up 8 months later (note - I had continued to breastfeed only from my right breast), the new mammogram showed a lot of calcifications in my left breast.

Avatar n tn 7 days later found painfully lump in right breast around 2o'clock position of breast. Should I wait to see if it goes away like others or seek dr. opinion. Any idea what causes is? BreastFeeding? Baby seems to nurse fine on breast however could it be a clogged duct?
Avatar f tn Just want to clarify if the breast lump was present before you started breast feeding or it occurred while you are breast feeding. The lump you are palpating could be a galactocele which is common during or after lactation. In this condition, the ducts are blocked and the milk accumulates, forming a cystic structure. Try massaging the breast or use a breast pump and see if the lump disappears. You may also want to consult your doctor for evaluation. Good luck.
Avatar n tn My 15 yr old daughter noticed a lump in her right breast, not behind the nipple but in the upper right area outside the nipple. It feels hard, almost like a bee-bee. In addition, her right nipple appears to be inverted, which has never been inverted until now. She said that she noticed it almost a week ago. Should I be concerned? I have an appointment scheduled for her, but it is not for another week. Concerned if I should push to get her in sooner than that to be evaluated.
299260 tn?1304219705 Hi, ladies. I noticed a small lump in my breast last night & it actually hurts to touch it. I'm close to starting AF & had heard that you can have little lumps during that time of your cycle, which is why my doc always told me to do a breast exam after AF. I'm just curious, though, cause I've never had something like that, which hurt to touch it. Does it sound like something I should have checked out? Anyone have this happen to them? Thanks !
Avatar n tn How are you? During breast feeding, tender/small lump in the breast can be due to free movement of milk that is stopped because of a block in some duct of the breast. Massaging the area or using warm compress on the area will help the lump to dissolve. However, if this persists, i agree with being vigilant with your health. Given your family background, Mammogram, ultrasound and CA125 will be very helpful in ruling out cancer. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I stopped BF my 11 month old last week and just noticed a lump in my right breast. Is this normal? I never had mastitis or anything during BF but my breasts did leak a lot during pregnancy. Worried it's cancer but think maybe it could be that i'm still producing milk. Has anyone else experienced this? If my whole breast was hard, i'd not be so worried but it's only a small lump... Also periods still haven't returned - maybe that's proof that i'm still producing a lot of milk?
Avatar f tn Hi. The lump in your left breast you noticed while breast feeding could be a galactocele. It occurs after blockage of the duct during lactation. There are no signs of inflammation like swelling, redness, warmth. What you can do is use a breast pump and note if it disappears. You can also go to your doctor for evaluation. Take care.
Avatar f tn 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...
4364093 tn?1365873259 But honestly 5 hours isn't a huge deal, especially if you can get home during your shift to feed her.. she'll probably only eat 2-3 times during that period, one can be during your lunch and you'll only need 2 extra pumped bottles, I think you'll do great!
Avatar f tn ) If the lump in your breast is truly a fibroadenoma,then there is absolutely no harm to you or your baby to continue breast feeding. The only thing that concerns me is that you did not see your doctor post partum for a follow-up. Most likely it is a fibroadenoma,but a lump in the breast is always concerning whether it's a cysts (fluid filled sac) or a Fibroadenoma..
Avatar n tn One breast has several spots or lumps in it that feel like stone. Any helpful suggestions to ease pain? I am already using cold/wet cabbage leaves which seem to somewhat help. How long will it take for my breasts to get back to pre-pregnancy form (as much as possible - hah) and be soft?
213739 tn?1215489609 I know- so frustrating when I have NO CLUE what it was. We had crab legs and shrimp on Thursday night and I woke up Friday morning with the swollen eyes and lips and then, Friday night, the lips got HUGE and I couldn't talk and I could feel it in my throat a little- I could always breathe fine though- and then this morning I was fine and all of a sudden, BAM, I felt something in my throat, couldn' t swallow and couldn't talk at all. He said my larynx was swollen.
Avatar f tn Approximately a month ago, my RT hand brushed against my RT breast and I was immediately alarmed that I felt a lump. Of course, I panicked but was lucky to get an appointment with my General Practitioner that same day. **In the area of the US I live, diverse types of medical services are not available and General Practitioners service our small rural community as PCP's. My breasts have always been "lumpy".
2075737 tn?1379451282 I actually had thai at 33 weeks, i never had a small lump but a red hot area on my breast. Any changes in your breast are always essemtial to be checked but definately see your doctor, it will get more painful when your full milk comes in. I had to take 4 antibiotics a day for 3 weeks.
Avatar n tn Now, I went to another OBGYN and asked her about my scares as I am still having white dc in 1 breast, both bs feel lumpy and I still have arm lump. I'm a mess. The OBGYN said she didn't see or feel anything other than the armpit thing(she said she didn't think it was a big deal) however, she referred me to a surgeon to check my bs but I have decided to go to a diff dr to check things immediately or on site. Is there anything else positive that this can be? I am so scared.
Avatar n tn I am 33. I just finished breastfeeding for 14 months. My right breast stopped producing milk at 10 mos. My left is still full of milk. My right has now begun producing yellow fluid spontaneously and upon manual expression. I had a biopsy from my right outer quadrant/begining of the axilla area on 11/00 and it was deemed an overreactive lymph node. I still had another lump there and was told it too was a lymph node but no biopsy taken. The other lump is still there and has grown in size.
475472 tn?1210037633 On saturday I'm laying on the couch, sleepy, with my hand on my stomach. Somehow my hand touched the right side of my right breast and I felt a rock. Believe me all sleep disappeared. I felt my breast and discovered a lump about 3" in diameter deep near the breast wall. Today, Monday, I visited my GP and she immediately put in a call to my breast surgeon (in 1/2007 I had a biospy on my left which was benign calcium deposits). I'm scarred about tomorrow.
Avatar n tn Back in jan I found a small lump behind my nipple. As a die hard breastfeeding mama for many years, it felt to me like a plugged duct. My youngest child weaned last year, but I've had milk since, just one of those things. I treated it as I've treated any plugged duct. Only this one did not go away. As time has gone, its gotten larger, and more painful, in the last month, I'm getting a clear sticky fluid out, without expressing it, its just coming out.
Avatar m tn I have recently had a lump in my breast, and i must point out that i arent breastfeeding and i am only 18, it was very sore and very big. my whole boob swelled but there was nothing physical on the skin. the lump hurt and my whole boob felt warm and was about twice as big as the other. i visited my GP who examined it and said it was a abscess inside my boob, and gave me a week antibiotics, 12 tablets a day to try and get rid. i had to go back 3 days later for some pain relief too.
