Cyclical breast: changes are certainly possible, but if you feel a hard lump, or if you are uncertain of the significance of what you are feeling, you should see your doctor for an evaluation to make sure.

Some woman have fibrocystic breasts. she must have an ultrasound along with the mammogram So call your doctor and check it all out..
