Many characteristics: Fibrocystic breast can have different characteristics- you can feel something that feels like a small "bb", a rock, a pea or just an area of irregular thickness and tenderness. However any new breast finding or change in breast warrants eval by your doctor and possibly mammogram and/or ultrasound. It is important to be assessed- so make an appointment.
