I am currently breastfeeding and feel oblong spongey lumps in my breasts. I cannot tell uf these are normal. Dr will not do mammogram until i wean.

Ask your doctor for an ultrasound so you can rest assured that these lumps aren't more concerning. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I was diagnosed with fibroids in my breast. My left breast is the worst. I had a mammogram, it was normal. My question is what does that mean exactly?
Fibroadenomas?: Do you mean fibroadenomas, or fibrous breast tissue? If fibroadenomas, how were they diagnosed?
