Either: Lumps in your breast can be fibrocystic changes. Need to get checked to make sure nothing more serious is going on.

Breast mass: Yes it could be normal breast morphology. On the therhand it could be fibrocystic disease, fibroadenoma or more seriously breast cancer to name a few. Your age is a factor, the quality of the lump, the mobility of the lump, skin texture and some other factors. You should have your breast evaluated by your md and possibly get an ultrasound or mammogram.

Yes: Not all women leak milk. It is not necessary to do so.
A member asked:

What can I do if my breasts are extra engorged?

Manual pump: It can be difficult for your baby to latch if your breasts are extremely engorged. If this is the case you may have to manually pump a little from your breast before attempting to feed your baby. Nurse only one side per feeding and this will help signal your body to produce less milk. Try not to stimulate or pump between feedings and this will help decrease the amount as well.
A member asked:

When will my breasts even out again?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson
Pediatrics 22 years experience
In time: Your breasts should get close to what they were before you breastfed with some new changes. In some cases stretchmarks or a new variation in size is the norm. If your breasts were not even to start they will most likely remain uneven afterward. They also may be stretched and fall differently than before, all part of the natural changes that have occurred during your time breastfeeding.

A 36-year-old member asked:

How can I naturally make my breasts smaller? Binding?

Nothing you can do!: Your breast size is dictated by your own genetic makeup. Binding does not work! a surgical procedure to reduce their size works well. Also if you are overweight or obese losing weight could help.
