Some women can get fibrocystic breast disease which is benign (not cancerous) but get checked out to be sure. ...Read more

I have never done a breast check before and I'm not sure if I am doing it right or pushing too hard. However I feel multiple lumps. Is this normal?

Breast lumps: Breast lumps, usually very small cysts or small collections of fibrous tissue (adenomas) are very common and are considered normal. No need to worry about this. The current scientific evidence states that breast self-exams are no longer recommended because they are inefficient for screening for cancer. Best to get mammograms at the recommended age (50). Relax until then unless a family member had. ...Read more

Have it evaluated!: Breast-lumps like this should be evaluated by a physician and with imaging. If you are a young woman under age 25 breast cancer is less likely. If you are older, especially if over age 40, it is more likely. But no matter your age, see a doctor and have it evaluated. Hopefully it will be benign--a fibroma is a possibility. Best wishes! ...Read more
