Im 22 with small breast. When self examing my breast, i notice on top of breast i notice lumpy movements. Could it just be my ribs or a lump?
Warm compress: The white spot is most likely a "bleb" that forms at the end of the nipple, making it harder for the milk to come out and causing pain. Warm compresses may help it loosen and be removed. The baby nursing from that side may help as well. If that doesn't work, sometimes a surgeon can quickly remove them. They often recur. Lecithin has been suggested as a way to stop the recurrences. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi I have a scab on my nipple and I have also found a lump under my arm pit on the same side should I be concerned?
That's a lymph node: Whatever injury occurred to the breast is 'known' to your immune system - as evidenced by the 'activation' of the lymph node. That is a garrison of your immunity- and it likely is responding. I would show this to a doctor who can make sure it's nothing more serious. Primarily we need to know 'what' happened - to understand the disease process more fully. A full family history is also necessary. ...Read more

A pimple on my breast has left a small hard lump under the skin. I had mammogram and ultrasound last month which was clear, should I be worried?

When the body can't fight an infection it builds a wall around it called a granuloma. It will go away with time, heat may help. If it doesn't go away, make sure to have it re-examined by your doctor.

Possible: It is possible, but also not as possible that it will squirt far. The nipple should be well inside the baby's mouth so it doesn't matter a lot if it leaks some out the side. You'll just have to try it and see how it goes. Many women with pierced nipples breastfeed without problems. (of course with the piercing removed.). ...Read more
