lump

Avatar n tn Been solely breastfeeding my daughter for five months. Found a lump in the left breast in Feb this year. Had ultrasound, report said likely fat necrosis, vague change in subcutaneous tissue, went for another ultrasound beginning july, had FNA. Can still feel the lump, maybe its a bit smaller but not sure. I see surgeon on Tuesday, is fat necrosis a likely possibility during breastfeeding?. And the left breast is always bigger than the right..this is freaking me out a little bit..
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.

1528695 tn?1360582320 So almost 5 wks and finally getting the hang of breastfeeding however I find she never seems to be full. She falls asleep on the breast and ***** in her sleep. When I put her down she wakes up crying and sucking her tongue out, sucking her fingers, and is inconsolable... I leave her on the breast for a good 20-30 min & shes still waking up like that. Any suggestions? My worry is that shes not getting enough or maybe not sucking right? How can you tell?
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 ) Most breast lumps are benign.
Avatar n tn I am currently breast feeding my 17 week old baby. i do have to use a pump durning work hours. On Monday I woke w/three large painful lumps in left breast. After reveiwing ultra sound dr. said wait to see by Thursday they were gone. Dr. had no explaintion. 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?
193137 tn?1367880063 I discovered a lump during a self-exam on January 1st of this year. It was very small and round, like a pea. I'm usually pretty lazy about doing these kinds of exams, but I thought it would be a good way to start off the new year and it would be easy to remember when I needed to do it again. At the age of 31, I never expected to find anything. When I went to my primary care doctor in February, she couldn't even find it. I showed her where it was and she ordered an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn If the lump is painful,then could be a clogged milk duct which is very common in breastfeeding mothers.Your should massage the lump while breastfeeding or when pumping.Applying very warm compresses should help unclog the duct. However,any new lump that persists,whether painful or not, needs to be evaluated.Since you are breastfeeding,it's highly unlikely to be something alarming ,but the only way to get a proper evaluation is to have this lump investigated by your OBGYN.
Avatar m tn 3 days since I noticed the lump in my breast. AHHH IM so nervous!!!!!!
Avatar n tn I know this was not here before I gave birth and started breastfeeding. I did get a breast infection in the other and took medication to help. I am assuming that if this was a blocked duct I would have gotten sick long before the other breast got infected and it has not nor has the lump moved or gotten bigger. Wondering if I have concern for something more serious than a blocked duct?
2075737 tn?1379447682 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 f tn I m only 15...I felt a lump in my left areola and it was quite fixed and hard..Compared to few days ago,it was less painful...Was it possible to be breast cancer?I dont have any discharge from my breast..
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.
436521 tn?1204466577 I HAVE A PAINFULL LUMP IN MY RIGHT BREAST UNDER MY NIPPLE. I HAVE HAD THIS FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS. IT SEEMS THAT THE PAIN COMES AND GOES. I ALSO HAVE SOME PAIN IN THE LEFT BREAST BUT NO LUMPS. IT HURTS TO LAY ON MY STOMACH OR TO HOLD MY SON CLOSE TO THAT SIDE. I DONT KNOW IF THIS NORMAL OR SOMETHING WRONG.
Avatar f tn I have major back problems, so the dr. prescribed me Soma. Soma is a pain killer, but I'm worried about taking it because I'm breastfeeding. My dr. said it's ok to take while breastfeeding, but what I read on the internet it says do not take while breastfeeding. I have a call out to the lactaction nurse but she has not called me back yet. Has anyone heard of the pill Soma and should I take this while breastfeeding? I would love to hear opions on this.

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 m tn what makes me worry is discovering a lump on my left breast near the armpit since the second day i started breastfeeding my baby.it is not a round shape lump,moveable,painless and not firm.i went to see a doctor in government hospital but the doctor said it is not an 'obvious lump',i dont know what he meant by that but this lump makes me worry a lot.what should i do?
Avatar n tn Good luck to you, I know finding a lump while pregnant makes for a LOT of extra stress during what is supposed to be a very happy time. I'm hoping you and your baby will live long and lumpless!
1115543 tn?1376380638 Not how to get the baby to latch on, when I can express, how I do things, how I can involve DF in feeding if im breastfeeding. Could someone or everyone who has experience in breastfeeding give me as many ins and outs and how to do's as possible from the moment you give birth? I would really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn It all started because I was sick to my stomach a lot of the time. So my Dr. had referred me to a general surgeon for futher investigation. Before my appointment with the surgeon my husband had found a large mass in my breast. The Dr. was quite concerned and booked a mamorgam, but it wasn't for at least 3 weeks. So in filling out the questionaire at the surgeons office I put a question mark where it asked for a checked box for cancer.
