Most common causes of Breast Lumps include: -
- Breast Cyst
- Breast Abscess
- Breast Cancer
- This is a benign group of cells that support other kinds of cells in your breast.
- These are made of fibrous and glandular tissues.
- This will feel like a round breast lump, and can be hard or firm.
- It can be moved around during a breast self-exam.
- These can be located near the surface of the breast and are easily felt.
- Fibroadenosis also known by other names such as fibrocystic disease of breast or mammary dysplasia or chronic cystic mastitis.
- The usual common presentation is as a breast lump or pain in the breast (mastalgia). The pain or lump may occur just before the menstrual periods and then disappear.
- Sometimes it is not so much lump but an induaration or nodularity of the breast.
- This cyclical presentation is due to the influence of the sex hormones on the breast tissue of the women.
- These are fluid-filled, tiny sacs within the breast tissue and are benign.
- They are very common, especially over the age of 35.
- These cysts often vary in size during the menstrual cycle and may be tender.
- They feel like soft grapes or small water-filled balloon and are often seen on mammograms and if large maybe palpable as distinct soft lumps on self examination.
Breast Abscess and Mastitis
- A lump that is painful and presenting in lactating women is generally an abscess.
- The actual lump of the abscess is preceeded by redness and inflammation of the skin and the tissue over the area of the breast and is called mastitis.
- The lumps of abscess are usually tender, smooth, round and sometimes movable.
- An abscess is nothing but a pus-filled space that form under the skin due to bacterial infection.
- A malignant lump that is made of abnormal breast tissue cells, growing in an uncontrolled way.
- A malignant breast lump will have an irregular shape (not round) with a pebbly surface, somewhat like a golf ball. It will be very hard, like a slice of raw carrot.
- It may not be movable during a breast self-exam, but since tissue around it may move, it's sometimes hard to know if the lump is moving, or if healthy tissue around it is moving.
- A clinical breast exam and a mammogram will help to clear up the diagnosis.
- A needle biopsy would provide more information about the lump.
- Breast cancer can be located near the surface, or deeper inside the breast, close to the chest wall.
- It can also occur in the armpit area, where there is more breast tissue.
