Lump in breast tender

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in breast tender


Avatar n tn I have heard that cysts can be painful, but that is not from experience as I have never had a cyst in my breast. A lump in the breast is always scary, we always think the worst. But stats show that most lumps turn out to be nothing. So keep positive and ring and book an appointment with your doctor and take it from there. If you're doctor is not 100% positive what the lump is, then insist on a mammogram and ultrasound to get it checked out.
Avatar f tn I just discovered a large, tender lump in the very lower-inner quadrant of my breast extending below my breast towards my sternum.. Approximately 1.5 - 2 inches in size. The skin around this lump is red. Prior to discovering this lump I saw my PCP who ordered my 1st screening mammogram which I haven't had yet. Should I go ahead and have the screening mammogram or should I see my physician first? Will a mammogram show a lump this low in my breast?
Avatar f tn It's most probably a swollen lymph node caused by an infection or an inflammation in a nearby area. At your age, I really don't expect that lump to be cancer. You may need to see a doctor sooner if the swelling and pain is progressive.

Avatar n tn When I am in the shower, I now have been able to feel an area that I think is a lump. It is small and feels smooth- probably oval shaped. It seems to be movable when I run my finger over it. It's not hard- feels somewhat rubbery. I am trying not to feel it all the time because I might be making it worse, but it is hard to keep myself from constantly checking it. I have a gyn appt. in April. Do you think this might be cancer. I am 51 years old and am past menopuase. I am worried.
Avatar f tn Hi Lisa, From what you describe about the pain and with not feeling a lump in your breast,I don't think that this is a sign of breast cancer.The only thing that I can think of, is that maybe you might have pulled a muscle.Prior to this pain have you done some sort of exercise involving your arms?.Have you pulled,pushed or lifted something heavy?.If you haven't done any of these things,then you should consult with your family doctor to find out what's causing this pain.

Avatar n tn // I agree with our Community leader that it's not unusual to have all sorts of changes in the breast/breasts when a woman is pregnant.(Hormonal changes) I think you should stop pushing the painful area as you might cause even more pain.Applying warm compresses might help.

Avatar f tn I found a lump in my right breast last july, I have been to 2 doctors--1 felt it, 1 did not. I have had 2 normal ultrasounds. The amount of tenderness varies but the lump seems the same. I am only an A cup so there isn't much tissue to feel thru, I can't feel it when I lay down, but the 1 doctor did. Currently it hurts if I move my arm the wrong way. I haven't been back to the doctor since Nov (when the 2nd ultrasound was unremarkable).

Avatar n tn Get it checked out! I have a lump in my right breast, about the size of a marble. My doctor told me to cut back on caffeine, as it can cause fibrous cysts. I didn't drink much caffeine to begin with, but did what she told me. Nine months later, the lump grew a little bit and was tender. Doctor scheduled a mammogram and biopsy for me and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm only 31! Even if the lumps don't hurt, get them checked out anyway. Oftentimes, cancerous lumps are not painful.

Avatar n tn I had breast reduction surgery years ago and tonight I found a small, tender to the touch lump at the end of my scar on the inside of my breast (middle of my chest not outside part of breast) Should I have this looked at, or could it just be scar tissue?
Avatar m tn If you had previous breast injuries, fat cells in the breast tissue may be damaged and produce a firm, painful lump in the breast. If lumps are accompanied by breast tenderness and redness, it may suggest an infection. Similarly, breast cysts can also produce firm, tender lumps in the breast that change in size and seem to appear and disappear as your monthly hormone levels change. They often cause pain before your period is due and improve when the period starts.

Avatar n tn 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.
