This is known as Fibrocystic Breast Changes or cyclic breast changes, before periods breast tissue may have a dense, bumpy and lumpy feel to the fingers. This feel is usually more in the outer areas, mostly near the armpit. Sometimes some women feel one or more lumps during this time and breasts are sensitive to touch because of hormonal change and building up of some extra fluid in the breasts.
