I am 24 years old and about 2 days ago in the lower part of my left breast a hard knot about the size of a quarter appeared. In the last day my chest as become a little sore and the knot is really sensitive. Im not sure what it could be and would appricate any help, or advice you could give me! Thanks for your time!
I understand your concern. It is common for young females to develop lumps in their breasts especially coinciding with one's menstrual cycle. Pain and a sore sensation can be maximal just before menses accompanying any lumps, and should disappear by the a few days after you start your menses. These lumps can be fibrocystic disease or fibroadenoma which are benign breast conditions. I still suggest you show this to your doctor so that you can be evaluated properly. He may request tests like mammogram or ultrasound to further assess the lump.
