Avatar n tn Hi! Last year, about after Christmas, I found a breast lump on the left breast. When I sleep on my left side, it really hurts and also when i sleep lying on my face on the pillow so my breasts are directly on the bed.

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.

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 m tn Hi, Breast cancer in the male breast is relatively rare especially at your age,but since you can feel a lump under the areola, then it is necessary to see your Doctor for a clinical breast exam and maybe some type of testing for a correct diagnosis. A painful lump does not usually indicate breast cancer.

It doesn't feel irregular in shape, and is not visible without feeling the breast.

Avatar n tn However they saw it and I had biopsy done on my left breast a few months ago. It turned out to be beign and was just something to have to do with the ducts?

Or is this something that could be serious that I need to get checked out. I do have breast cancer in my family history.

Avatar f tn Hi there, I am a 26 year old fit and healthy male. I found a small lump under my left nipple several months ago. The nipple is also tender. I initially put this down to being gyno due to me training a lot in the gym resulting in an increase in testosterone. I have no other symptoms other than the lump and tenderness to touch. I would say the lump is slightly bigger than pea size. I have booked an appointment at the doctors but that’s over a month away.

Avatar f 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.
