Lump in breast tissue

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in breast tissue


522699 tn?1250590716 I went to my GP to get blood test results today for the lump / swollen lymph nodes under my right arm (I am waiting a biopsy on a lump found on ultrasound in my left breast 13th June). The blood test showed no sign of infection and my FBC was totally within normal ranges. My gp called the breast consultant's secretary and asked for her to read the Ultrasound report to her and it says suspected Fibroadenoma but can't rule out malignancy - priority core needle biopsey recommended.
3250415 tn?1347310615 Many women have breast tissue that is cystic in nature, and feels lumpy. Often it can be painful, especially around the time of menses. This is sometimes referred to as fibrocystic breast disease, although it is really not a disease. It is more accurate to refer to this as fibrocystic tissue or fibrocystic changes. Fibrocystic breast changes are really quite common. They usually start to develop in women in their fourth decade (in their 30’s).
Avatar n tn He sent me to a surgeon, he felt the lump, then did an ultra sound. He said the lump is all normal breast tissue, but it is painful. Have you ever had the feeling that something isn't right? I want to go to another doctor, but I can't really afford to go and be told the same thing...anyone have any information?
Avatar f tn On the 29/08/08 I had several lumps come up under both my armpits and a painful lump on my right breast, this lump was very painful and over the next 2 days leaked a white fluid. On the monday it just disappeared and over the following week the lumps under my armpits also settled down. Over the next 2 weeks the armpit lumps came and went, there was no pain but a slight ache as the day went on. During this time I felt very tired my bowels were very upset and I lost 14lbs in weight.
Avatar f tn Approximately 8 yrs ago, my mammogram revealed a lump in the same breast at the same postion. The lump was diagnosed as a cyst after an ultrasound was completed. The cyst was oval shaped with well-defined edges. The current breast lump is much larger and irregular in shape. The diagnosis is a swollen lymph node that is located in my breast tissue. The position is approximately 2 finger widths from the nipple and at 2 o'clock.
Avatar m tn 3 days since I noticed the lump in my breast. AHHH IM so nervous!!!!!!
Avatar f tn I have a lump in my breast. I had it biopsied about three months ago and it came back as stromal fibrosis. The lump started growing a month ago from 2 cm to the size of a lemon. It's not painful. I saw a surgeon yesterday and she said it feels like normal breast tissue. She said removing it would leave me disfigured because the lump is bigger than my breast. I could tell she had no idea what the lump was, but instead of saying that she said not to worry about it.
Avatar n tn I am 32 years old and have recently found a lump in my breast. My doctor sent me for a mammogram and ultrasound which both came back normal. The results said "seen brightly echogenic fibroglandular appearing architecture adjacent to isoechoic adipose, no cyst or focal solid lesion identified". The area around the lump stays very sore.
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 Her conclusion was that this lump is excess breast tissue, which has developed in the armpit as a result of the pregnancy. This is my 4th pregnancy and I have never experienced anything like this before. also, the " tissue" (lump) is not present on both sides...just on the left. Should I seek a second opinion? How common is unilateral excess breast tissue under the arm arising during pregnancy? And would it present as a lump?
Avatar n tn I have what feels like a golf ball sized lump in my right breast, i had an ultrasound done and they said it was just normal dense tissue. my concern is that my mother had breast cancer at age 29, the ultrasound tech was very brief and did not press deep. my breast hurts and is tender to touch every now and then. the lump has increased my cup size to a full C from a B. Could there be a tumor, cyst or cancer beneath/under the dense tissue that did not show up on the ultrasound.
Avatar f tn Had the lump in my breast biopsied.
Avatar f tn hi my mum had her breast removed due to breast cancer and 2 yrs later she has found a lump on the same breast she does not not weather it could be the big see bk again or if it is fatty tissue it is hard and has growen could anyone help me and tell me if they no what it is can fatty tissue grow and is it hard please help?
Avatar n tn In terms of reading a mammogram, cancer and benign lumps are the same density as breast tissue. All would show up as white on a mammogram. If a lump was in the middle of an area of dense tissue, it won't show up on the mammogram - the tissue will hide it. If the same lump is sitting in the middle of fat, it'll be very obvious, as fat shows up as gray on a mammogram.
Avatar f tn I recently hard a large hard breast tissue removed from my left breast in Oct. Everything came out fine. But my concern now is that I have found another lump in my right breast. I would like to know if anyone knows the risk factor of this? I am concerned that these showing up more now that I am at a higher risk for getting breast cancer?
Avatar n tn very noticeable, right breast
Avatar n tn m 40, have had 4 mamograms and just recently an ultrasound to diagnose a large lump and massive pain in my left breast. I have swollen glads in armpit and breast, and can feel a lump - inside, and now out. My doctor felt "something" although the U.Ss came back with a comment of normal fibro-cystic tissue/glands. I am tired - after 2 years of pain of the no caffine, heat situation. It isn't working! I'm 50 lbs.
Avatar n tn I had a lump in my tram reconstructed breast and I had it incised. It turned out to be fat necrosis and scar tissue. I am glad I had it examined as now I have peace of mind. I wish you the best.
Avatar n tn Hello I am 14 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. I am 34 years old. I have found a hard, round (about an inch and a half in diameter) lump in my left breast/underarm. It's not smooth. There is no such lump in the right breast. When I lay on my side and my breast is flat, you can clearly see the lump underneath the skin. In addition, the same breast has been extremely itchy for the past few weeks...
Avatar n tn A heterogeneous retroaerolar mass simply means that there is an unknown type of lump located behind the nipple of the breast that cannot be readily identified because it looks like the surrounding tissue. The lump in his breast may be a neoplasm, which is a tumor. These tumors can be benign, cancerous, or just a piece of tissue that serves no purpose (histoid). Hematoma is a tumor filled with blood, generally caused by a truama.
Avatar n tn The most obvious symptom in males would be a palpable or visible lump in the breast tissue. As a rule male breast cancer appears in the later years but anything is possible. If you have noticed a lump (no matter how small) please make an appointment with preferably a Breast Specialist for an exam and possible Mammogram. Regards ...
Avatar n tn Well, 1.5 years ago, I found a pea size lump under my arm. very near my armpit. It turned out to be IDC. Doc said the tumor is in the 'high-end' breast tissue because our breast tissue goes all the way under our arms. He said it's in an unusual place but technically it is still breast cancer. Please check with your doctor to be sure, that way you can sleep well at nights!
Avatar n tn I have so much breast tissue in both breast which has all my adult life made me nervous but when I got this painful lump under my arm pit then i kinda felt deformed. I get them off and on some big some small. They get really bad when I have a baby. This huge mass will grow under my arm pit. HUGE and painful. They have told me the same thing it is just extra breast tissue. But that is some scary breast tissue. I would love to know more about what causes this.
