What Happens If You Have A Lump In Your Breast
Please C UR Doctor: Any new lump in the breast should prompt physician evaluation. Based upon examination findings, your doctor may order tests such as an ultrasound+/-mammogram, and refer you to a breast specialist. If the lump is suspicious, a simple needle biopsy may be performed under local anesthesia in the office for definitive diagnosis. If the lump is deemed non-suspicious, short-term follow-up is advised. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends...: The vast majority of breast lumps are benign cysts. They often get larger before one's periods. They may disappear but often remain for years. A hard lump that continues to grow over time is cause for concern. Monthly breast self exams are wise so you can track any lumps. It is wise to consult your doctor but usually no need to treat.

See a breast surgeon: Self-examination definitely helps finding cancers but can be very difficult, since most women have "lumpy, bumpy" breasts; breast examination supplemented by ultrasound is the best way to distinguish the two.

It could also be breast cancer or enlargement of lymph nodes due to something else going on in the body. It may be accessory breast tissue as well.

Confirm first...: Most of laypersons tend to refer epididymal cysts as testicular cyst or bump. Cyst in epididymis is much more common than the rare one in the testes. So, verify if such cyst/bump is indeed in a testis or epididymis. If in epididymis, do nothing if asymptomatic; if in testis, usually require surgical exploration to make sure of not being testicular cancer. For individual decision/concern, ask Doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I have to get a lump in my breast aspirated, and i wanted to know if this procedure is painful?
Always be concerned: Watch for any lump which is enlarging over time especially in a post menopausal woman. I would be concerned if the mass is fixed, not mobile, firm, rather than soft. See if skin is retracted or red around the lump. Finally, if there is a bloody discharge on one breast i'd be concerned. ...Read more
