Dr. Alan R. Greene answered:

Is it normal for baby girls to develop lumps of tissue under their nipples like breasts?

Yes

Baby
A burst of your hormones pass to your baby shortly before delivery, one of the finishing touches in preparing her lungs to breathe air when she is born. These hormones include estrogen and androgens, and can have several transient side effects. Real, mature breast tissue forms, creating firm lumps under the nipples. Some babies even leak some real milk from their breasts.

What can I do for lumps in both breasts?

Physician Review

Open-uri20130406-704-i0o8y4
Palpable lumps in the breast may or may not be significant. Any palpable nodule in the breast should be reviewed by a physician who is experienced in breast review; surgeon, OB GYN, PCP. The provider should have access to high resolution ultrasound for an in depth review of the palpable area. Treatment options range from conservative observation to surgical excision, biopsy. Seek physician review.

How come I have big lumps in both breasts?

Most women's breasts are "lumpy-bumpy", especially after pregnancies +/- breastfeeding. This is because most of the breast consists of fat; the islands of milk-producing tissue tend to consolidate and change in response to hormonal changes. This should be no cause for concern and this should improve after menopause. However, don't become complacent-any NEW lump warrants evaluation.

Dr. Hung Khong answered:

Does soy milk cause lumps in mens breasts?

No

Breast_carcinoma
There is no scientific evidence that dietary soy food (milk, tofu, ect...) is linked to the development of breast cancer in women or men. And it does not cause lumps in men's breasts. If a man has a lump in his breast, he should immediately go see his doctor for an assessment. Breast cancer does develop in men, albeit much less common than in women.

Do fibrocystic breasts cause new lumps to form?

Yes

Open-uri20130112-17473-h8e4dv
The breasts go through changes related to hormone levels, stress and caffeine. The lumps will come and go. It is important to become familiar with your lumpiness and be able to distinguish your normal lump from something that feels abnormal. Anything abnormal should be discussed with your doctor.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

What kinds of lumps under breasts are cancerous?

Usually not possible

Cancer
to tell. It is generally not feasible to tell if a lump is cancerous. However, hard lumps that are fixed to the skin or chest wall are likely to be cancer, however, lumps without these characteristics can still be cancerous. If you have a lump in your breast, please see your doctor for examination and may be mammogram.

How can you check your breasts for lumps/cancer?

Mammogram&Self-Exam

Open-uri20120929-15991-j9c62a
The best way to check for breast cancer is a screening mammogram. It's safe, inexpensive, and noninvasive; it is most effective after menopause; most recommend starting at age 40. Self-examination is not as highly-endorsed but I think it can be a very effective way to find cancers when done often. Lastly, having a yearly physician exam is important as well.

What can cause large lumps in both of my breasts?

Breast masses

Breast lumps can be palpated anywhere. They can be in any quadrant, behind the nipple, or near the axillary region (arm pit). It can be normal breast tissue, fibrocystic, masses that are non-cancerous, benign masses like fibroadenomas or the dreaded cancer. Most cancers are located in the upper outer quadrant. See your physician for a history and physical. Diagnostic testing may be in order.
