Sudden Large Lump In Breast
What could cause a sudden large breast lump? I had a mammogram & sonogram 6 months ago and it was not there. It is approximately 3" accross.
May be: A breast cyst. See your doctor for a repeat examination. A new ultrasound may confirm a cyst, or simple needle aspiration may also resolve it.See 1 more doctor answer
Small, but plz C Dr.: It is very difficult to distinguish normal "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue from one that warrants further evaluation. Lumps that "count" tend to be 3-dimensionally round rather than pencil- or pancake-shaped and are harder than normal rubbery breast tissue. When finding a new lump, it is best to see your dr.;it may be wise to get a mammogram, ultrasound, or even a biopsy, depending on their findings.See 2 more doctor answers
What to do if I'm a former breast cancer patient who just found a big lump in breast about size of maybe an avocado pit?
See your oncologist: Hello- please see your oncologist asap (even if you just did or if you just had a negative mammogram). He/she will examine you and order a follow-up imaging exam to make sure you do not have breast cancer again. There is a good chance this is not breast cancer, but you need to rule it out first. You are very young and need genetic testing if you haven't had it. Your oncologist can do this.
Go see your doctor: Any lump in the breast should be examined by your doctor for confirmation. If it is real, a mammography is advised for confirmation. Often a biopsy is needed once a lump is confirmed to be there. Most breast cancer lumps are painless. If it is tender it may not be cancer. Fibrocystic condition of the breast can cause lumpiness and such lumps are often painful. Your doctor can give you medication.
Ultrasound/mammogram: A breast lump can be due to several etiologies:benign/ functional (traumatic, hormone related, cystic, fibrous), neoplastic (both benign -papillomas, fibroadenomas, phyloides and malignant-cancer, dcis lcis). The first thing to do is see a dr. For a good history and physical and the dr will then decide if one or both of the above tests are needed. Sometimes a MRI will be required.
Many variations: Please see your doctor. Given your age, breast cancer is extremely unlikely. However, you need to find out what this is. After a complete history and physical, if there is a palpable abnormality, an ultrasound will probably be next, perhaps followed by a mammogram.See 1 more doctor answer
Get seen: A dominant breast mass should always be seen without delay by a physician. Be brave and make the phone call.See 1 more doctor answer
See your doctor.: The first thing you do is figure out why there is a lump and why it is painful. At 47 you should be having mammograms every year. If you haven't it's past time to start. Your doctor should be able to refer you for biopsy if needed. (based off a thorough history and exam.) once you know what the lump is then you can deal with the pain from it.
C a Breast Surgeon: Although many doctors are knowledgable about breast diseases, a breast surgeon would be able to provide the most comprehensive evaluation of a breast lump; even though we are surgeons, we rarely recommend surgery unless a cancer is diagnosed. Go to www. Breastsurgeons. Org and find a member of the american society of breast surgeons in your area. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
Wait and watch: You probably have a big hematoma (bruise) where your seatbelt went across your breast. You may not see a bruise, but it can be deep within the breast. It takes time for your body to heal this, so it may be a month or two before you notice it getting better. Use ice packs. If it's getting worse, not better, see a doctor. Rarely the area can keep bleeding inside your breast, requiring surgery.
No: Please keep appointment to be sure. May need mammogram.
Get it checked: A fast growing lump like that is often a cyst or other benign (non-cancerous) lesion. Any lump should be checked though and I definitely urge you to go in for a mammogram and sonogram. A fast growing cancer is not unheard of, so please be certain by going in for care.See 1 more doctor answer
See your doctor!: Please see your doctor right away! You do not know what this is, and it has probably been worrying you for the past year. Please get to your doctor for a complete history and physical to include this particular problem. You will likely receive a mammogram and an ultrasound as the initial workup for a palpable breast mass.
