What do breast cancer lumps feel like?
A cancerous lump may feel rounded, soft, and tender and can occur anywhere in the breast. In some cases, the lump can even be painful. Some women also have dense, fibrous breast tissue. Feeling lumps or changes in your breasts may be more difficult if this is the case.
What does it mean if you feel a little ball in your breast?
Most breast lumps are benign, which means they’re not cancer. Benign breast lumps usually have smooth edges and can be moved slightly when you push against them. They are often found in both breasts. There are several common causes, including normal changes in breast tissue, breast infections, or injury.
Can breast cysts just disappear?
Most breast cysts do not need treatment. They may even go away on their own. Breast cysts that are very painful or large may need to be treated.
Where are breast cysts usually located?
Breast cysts are fluid-filled sacs inside the breast, which are usually not cancerous (benign). You can have one or many breast cysts and they can happen in one or both breasts. They’re often described as round or oval lumps with distinct edges.
What kind of lumps are normal in breasts?
Cysts, which are fluid-filled lumps, are common in the breast and are benign. They form when fluid builds up inside breast glands, and tend to be smooth or round. Fibroadenomas, which are benign tumors made up of glandular and connective breast tissue, are usually smooth and firm or rubbery to the touch.
Where are breast cancer lumps usually found?
Breast cancer can occur anywhere in the breast, but the most common location is the upper, outer section of the breast. It can be located near the surface or deeper inside the breast, close to the chest wall. It can also occur in the armpit area, where there is more breast tissue (a.k.a. the “tail” of the breast).
What should I do if I feel a lump in my breast?
Don’t put off seeing a doctor if you notice a change in your breast or underarm area. If you feel a lump in your breast, try not to panic or worry. Most lumps are not breast cancer, but something less serious, such as a benign breast condition. Some lumps go away on their own.
