Type Of Breast Lumps
Tumors, Cysts, etc.: The breast by its very nature is "lumpy-bumpy", often making it difficult to distinguish lumps that count from normal breat tissue. Lumps "that count" (dominant masses) tend to be distinct from normal breast tissue. They may be fluid-filled (cysts) or solid (tumors)--this can be differentiated by ultrasound. Tumors may be benign or malignant--this can be differentiated by biopsy.See 1 more doctor answer
Cysts, fibroadenomas: Cysts and fibroadenomas are the most common benign lumps. But if someone feels a lump it is best to see a breast disease specialist and get a mammogram and a directed ultrasound of the lump. It is not possible to determine what it is based on size, how it feels, and age of person.See 1 more doctor answer

If it is cancer, your symptoms don't mean it has spread. But you need a biopsy of any lump!See 2 more doctor answers

Depends: There are many different reasons breast lumps form. When you are in your teens and twenties the majority of causes are benign. As you enter your forties the risk of malignant (cancer) causes goes up. The only way to know for sure is to look at a piece of the lump under a microscope (biopsy). If a lump has been stable for many years with no changes u may be able to watch. If not, biopsy.

Breast tissue: Breasts are inherently lumpy structures. The milk producing portions are branch like and separated by fat. Younger women have more of the glandular breast tissue and are often more lumpy on examination. Any lump that stands out from the rest if the breast tissue should be evaluated. Some "lumps" are normal, some are cysts filled with fluid, some are benign growths and some are cancerous.See 1 more doctor answer
