Avatar n tn Most often than not, breast tenderness is secondary to hormonal changes, especially during menstruation, pregnancy, puberty, breast feeding and near menopause. Other common causes of breast pain fibrocystic breast changes, injuries, mastitis, and premenstrual syndrome. You could opt to observe your symptoms for the time being if you can tolerate the pain. If not, you should have yourself checked by a physician. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn It is possible that the lump has appeared because of the hormone she has taken,but it doesn't mean that the lump in her breast is bad.Many young women have lumps that are benign in nature. I can understand how worried you are for your daughter.. I also have daughter and I worry too when it concerns her health.
Avatar n tn Hi there. Gynecomastia is the symmetric enlargement of the breast tissues in a male. A pea sized lump does not conform with the definition of gynecomastia. I agree with your dad that this may be just part of puberty as my brother also had this when he as about 13. We were given the option by the doctor to have it removed or observed. We decided to have it removed and it turned out to be a benign nodule, and has not recurred even after a decade and a half.
Avatar m tn In all probability the small pea sized lump or lumps under or around the nipple are areolar skin glands or Montgomery glands. They are normal findings at puberty. However, if the lump is painful or increasing in size or causing redness, then this could be an infected hair root. In this case, you would need to consult a doctor immediately. If the lump is painless, not bothering you at all, then please do not touch it or squeeze it.
Avatar n tn My 12 year old daughter, who had neuroblastoma as an infant, has a small lump in her right breast. She has not reached puberty yet. Today is Saturday and I plan to talk to the doctor on Monday, but until then, worry, worry, worry. I've read that lumps are common in girls and boys as they start puberty; however, since my daughter has been through cancer once, I am very concerned. Any words of wisom?
Avatar n tn Hi, A young woman your age may experience a number of changes in her breasts during puberty and adolescence as she becomes an adult. Cyclical breast pain, the most common type of breast pain, is associated with the menstrual cycle and is nearly always hormonal. The pain which is almost never associated with breast cancer may be felt in only one breast or may be felt as a radiating sensation in the under-arm region. The pain may also be a result of hormones received from contraceptive methods (i.
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.
Avatar n tn My doctor stated I have increased breast tissue on that breast.
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...
Avatar n tn The soreness is not in the nipple itself, but appears to be sore behind the nipple. Could this be a sign of breast cancer.
Avatar m tn my daughter is 12 and 5 days ago we found a lump in her right breast rite behind her nipple. She said she noticed it right after exercising. Her period was about a week ago. It is a little tender and hurts to her. I dont know if she may have gotten hit in her right breast or somthing. Well i had breast cancer like a 3years ago so i am a breast cancer survivor.
Avatar n tn There is no swelling in her lymp noids noticed. Her 2nd cousin died of breast cancer. My brother was just dignosed with lung cancer.
Avatar f tn Tingling,soreness and many other sensations can occur in one or both breasts during puberty due to hormonal changes. Breast cancer at your age would be extremely unlikely, and the symptom you describe does not indicate cancer whatsoever.
Avatar f tn Hi, Your nipples could be aggravated by exposure to irritants including , soap, detergents,lotions and maybe also wearing a new bras which could be irritating your skin.Hormonal changes in your body during puberty could also be causing the itchiness. It is very difficult to give you a precise answer concerning your problem.
Avatar n tn I am in the stage of puberty but was wondering if there was a way to lessen my nipples so they do not have a large lump behind them.
Avatar m tn There are five stages of the changes that occur during puberty, called Tanner stages or Sexual Maturity Rating (SMR) stages. Breast lumps in boys are common during SMR 3 and SMR 4. The firm lump may occur under only one nipple, under both nipples, or under the two at different rates or sizes. The lumps are often tender when they are growing the fastest. In at least 90% of kids, these will go away on their own.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar f tn I find that doctors are quick to accuse and disbelieve things they don't understand. If anyone does this to you in the future, you could point that out to them. This is especially upsetting to hear considering you were paying for their help, had no reason to lie and asked them to help you. They should at least me honest if they don't know rather than lie/accuse/etc. So you may be aware that women who are too thin don have a period.
Avatar f tn The changes she is going through are extremely common at 11, because at this age her hormones play a big role during puberty and making breast lumps much more likely. Feeling a lump or lumps in young girls is inevitable and it's part of growing up.Actually,the most widespread type of breast lumps at this young age,are typically connected to normal breast development and growth and certainly not breast cancer.
Avatar n tn The left breast has a dark green fluid (staff) and the right has the same along with what seems to be a yellow thick discharge(looks like puss in a wound). two different substances from one breast. On the right breast I now have some bruising and bruise like lines (small) When I check breast's after shower they are somewhat stimulated by the cold. This is when I can see white spots under the breast. They are very small and in lines approx. 2cm. all over the breasts.
Avatar f tn I had a lumpectomy at age 25—benign fibroid. I had a bad breast infection and trauma at age 29 that resulted in a (temporary) 12cm solid lump, with about 6cm remaining as internal reshaped tissue enclosing small. Dozens upon dozens of other lumps and bumps that were diagnosed as benign via ultrasound and/or mammogram over the years, and fluctuated or disappeared.
Avatar n tn Hello Mahagen, a lump under the nipple in any teenage boy is usually physiological.( it is normal phenomenon being a part of the growth phase during the puberty). This should not worry you. this is condition is called Physiological Gynaecomastia. You can further consult your family physician to reconfirm the condition.
Avatar f tn Hi, If you have several lumps that are causing you discomfort,you must check with your doctor,so he/she can run some tests to make sure that each lump is without question a Fibroadenoma. These benign lumps develop mostly in young women during the puberty years,but can occur at any age.No one knows what causes fibroadenomas,but it's believed that these breast lumps occur due to an increased sensitivity to the hormone estrogen that is present in women.
Avatar n tn I had a small pea sized non painful lump in a similar place last year and that went away in a few days of its own accord but this is different. I do not feel comfortable talking to my parents about this. I am not currently registered with a doctor. Do you think i should register one and go and see them as soon as possible? What could it be? It is hurting me to wipe myself, and also when i sit down or stand up. Please help me.
Avatar n tn Hi, Breast cancer in adolescent males is virtually unheard of.However,teenage boys going through puberty commonly develop a tender lump under the nipple of one or both breasts. This condition is called “gynecomastia.”caused by hormone changes during puberty, is very common, affecting many teenage boys. It is normal, temporary, and not a sign of breast cancer.
Avatar n tn Ok now im freaking out. I found a lump in left breast in june but it was just before my cycle so I just kept an eye on it. watched it for a coupleof months. Then one day I was having bad breast pain on the same side so I went to my GP the next day and he pushed around and asked if it hurt I said yes but its not the same pain he said that is good so he sent me in for mammo and ultrasound.
Avatar n tn The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery. Thankyou for your information also because now I think i will phone my doctor and ask her if its serious enough for surgery, or just a big pimple?
Avatar m tn Like you I thought after being told that it wasn't breast cancer I was completely safe. I have learned however that gynecomastia occurs in puberty and old age. If it occurs at any other age test should be done as a serious underlying condition could be present. Again any doctor telling you just get the surgery is incompetent. Research the condition on google also I use lots of help and information there. Ask yourself How do you feel? Any other problems or symptoms?
