Lump in breast
I have a lump in my right breast. Ultrasound and mammogram show nothing.
Advised to continue checking the lump and see if there is any changas and to return to surgeons office in 3 months . Why do I have a lump that you can feel , but not see.
Please reply
Thanks
Pat

Hi,

A breast lump is caused due to various causes - fibroadenoma, cyst, lipoma, lymph node being the most common causes.

It would be missed on the routine investigations if it is too deep, small in size or if the breast tissue is dense.

You could be having either of these. In rare cases is the lump malignant or cancerous.

It is important to get a proper clinical reevaluation got done in 3 months to have a confirmed diagnosis and to see for any changes in the lesion.

Let us know if you have any other doubts and post us about how you are doing.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
