Is it normal to have really lumpy breasts 1 or 2 weeks before a period? these lumps feel a tiny bit hard and i can't tell if it's just normal or not

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.

Self exam: the reason a woman should examine her breasts once a month to including putting her hands on hips and squeezing is so that if something happens that was not there before they will spot it. Some woman have fibrocystic breasts. she must have an ultrasound along with the mammogram So call your doctor and check it all out..
