Common Questions and Answers about Painful left breast lump

breast

Avatar n tn I've also had a very similar experience. My left breast has had a painful lump under the nipple for about 6 months now. I've tried to talk to a few doctors/nurses at my school health center, but everyone kept telling me it was most likely nothing since I am so young (22 years old). I finally got one doctor to examine me and refer me to the hospital to have an ultrasound done, and lo and behold, they told me I have a lump.
Avatar f tn AND THEN ON THE SIDE OF MY RIGHT BREAST...NOW FOR A MONTH NOW....I FOUND A PAINFUL LUMP ON MY LEFT BREAST UNDER THE NIPPLE..DO I HAVE BREAST CANCER!!
Avatar n tn I am premenstrual, and I know breasts can become lumpy in this period of time, but I have a lump in my left breast which I noticed around a week ago, and I have been experiencing pain in this area for 2 weeks now. I am also very stressed as I have exams very soon, and wonder if this could possibly be Da Costa's syndrome? I'm really worried, but know if I see my GP, he will say to wait until my period comes. Please could you give me some advice. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I just discovered a painful lump near my areola on my left breast. It's a size of a dime, hard to touch and not moving. I just had my period two weeks ago and the right breast is not painful. It's as if the pain goes down to my left arm. A friend told me to give it a few days and if it doesn't go away then have it check by a doctor. I'm scared it's the first time it happened to me.
Avatar n tn I have a lump in my left breast that is extremely painful, especially to the touch. It is visible and red. There is no break in the skin, so I doubt that it is an insect bite. I know that cancerous lumps are for the most part are not painful. I have been taking advil for 2 days hoping that would aleviate the pain, but it has not helped. Should I be concerned with this lump?

Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 20 year old male with a lump under my left breast. Not very large. It seems like the nipple retracts, but no discharge. It has been there for maybe 6 months, but the last month is when it has really started hurting. Even when sleeping on my left side, the pain can be very irritating. I do workout on a constant basis and have recently lost some weight. I have read up on Gynecomastia, but do not have insurance right now to see a doctor.
Avatar n tn I have a lump in left breast at 3 o'clock. Both mammogram and sonogram show nothing. But lump is there. Surgeon did needle biopsy last week. The waiting is so hard. What should I expect to hear and why does it take so long? I have heard that breast cancer lumps are not painful but my lump is. It must not be a cyst because it did not drain with the needle. Can you help? I am not a good patient and want to know now.

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 n tn Just three days ago I began having pain in my left breast and didn't think much about it until that evening when undressing I noticed what feels like a large, hard lump (mass) in my breast. Now I am really afraid, and know I need to go to the doctor. I am 49 and seem to be in menopause because I have not had a period for several months. Occasionally I feel what seems to be a mild hot flash, but no extreme symptoms. I have four children.
432779 tn?1364498475 I went for my OB appt yesterday and she found a lump on my left breast. She thinks it might be to do with the breastfeeding so she will check it again next time. Has anyone had this situation?
Avatar n tn I have found a lump under my right breast very near the armpit area. I am a breast (left) cancer survivor and I currently taking Evista. I had an ultrasound just last summer and it did show that I had cysts in this breast however, I have never had any pain until recently (the last 3 1/2 weeks). I can definitely feel the lump and it is tender to the touch when I lay on that side for some length on time, such as sleeping or if I accidently bump it.
Avatar n tn I am 30 years old and about four months ago I noticed a small lump in my left breast. I did my monthly exam about a week ago and noticed the lump has gotten a little larger and is rather hard. The lump is not easily moveable and it is not painful but I am experiencing sharp pains throughout my left breast. Could this lump still be a cyst?

Avatar n tn My youngest child is 2, I nursed him until he was a year old, so I haven't nursed in a little over a year. I was experiencing a dull pain in my left breast the other day and came to find a painful knot or lump under my nipple. Is there any reason to be concerned or can this pass with time?
Avatar n tn I found a lump on my left breast about 5 months ago and made an appointment to see my doctor. The lump was a bit tender but I assumed it was because I had been prodding it! My doctor said she was sure it was a 'breast mouse' but sent me to the hospital to have it checked by a specialist. I went to see the specialist and he told me it was fibro something, and the lump was due to the fact that I have large breasts.
Avatar n tn i am 31 yrs old, and have a painful lump in my left breast. i can feel it when i'm standing, but cannot feel it when i lie down. what could this be? it pains when i press it hard and mess with it. i can also move it and really pains before the periods. i'm really scared about it.
Avatar n tn I woke up this morning with several painful lumps in my left armpit. They are slightly red and hard to the touch. I know it is not from shaving considering I have not shaved for a few days and I have not taken any antibiotics for several years. What on earth could this be? I am only 20 so I'm pretty sure it's not breast cancer. All the same though, it's rather painful and I would like to know what's going on. Thank you!
