Breasts are lumpy: Our breasts are naturally "lumpy". It is important for you to examine yourself monthly to learn what is normal for you. If something feels different, then contact your doctor. Fibrocystic changes (see some other posts) is common and frequently causes fluid filled cysts that feel lumpy and breast pain. If you have concerns, get examined by a breast specialist.
