What is this small hard lump between my breasts, it hurts when I touch it.?

Xiphoid?

Bone_marrow_biopsy
Kind of hard to tell without a look, but the sternum and xiphoid bones are between your breasts. Sometimes there can be a little bony prominence that hurts if you push on it.

I have small lumpy breasts after breast feeding 6yrs ago. How will I tell a cancer lump from the lumps I normally have in my breasts?

Hx, PE, imaging, Bx

Breast
Fist 6 years of stable "lumps" likely suggests non-cancer. A physical examination can help, but is not definitive. Worrisome signs include a firm, fixed mass, large masses, lymph edema of the breast (looks like orange peel). Imaging with mammogram or other tests like ultrasound or MRI may help. Biopsy is the definitive test, but not everyone needs an invasive procedure.

I removed 3 lumps from my breast and found out I had ILC now I have another lump on the same breast shall I remove my breasts.I am 16 anknow its rare?

Hereditary testing

Cancer_treatment
If ILC refers to invasive lobular carcinoma I would strongly advocate for you to be BRACA tested. If positive consider bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction; if negative and the ILC does refer to invasive lobular carcinoma consider mastectomy. Lastly, given your age, if possible I would seek a second opinion from a Childrens Hospital or a national Cancer Center.

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.
