I am 27 years old and have found a hard pea size lump in my right breast almost in my armpit area. It is painful and tender to the touch. Also I have had discharge from my nipples that is a yellow/green color, I had a child almost 2 years ago and don't know if it is possible that I may still be producing milk. I have not breastfeed in over a year. The discharge is from the same breast were I have found the lump. Is this something that I should be concerened about?
Does the lump increase or decrease in size?
Not that I have noticed, if it has increased at all it has been very slight.
Is it painful or tender?
It is very tender and if touched painful. That is how I noticed it, I was bathing when I touched it it was very painful to the touch.
Has a mammogram, ultrasound and MRI been done?
No. I am trying to get a appointment with my doctor, but it could be about a month.
Since when have you noticed the lump?
I noticed the lump about 3-4 weeks ago. I haven't noticed much change in size but the tenderness has increased. It is painful just to wear a bra right now.
Are you lactating?
I had a child 21 months ago but have not breastfed in over a year. I do not believe that I am lactating but I have had a yellow/green discharge from my right breast for over 7 months now. At first I thought that it was associated with my son, but like I said I have not breastfed him in over a year so now I am questoning the connection.
Have you noticed any abnormal features on breast self examination like skin changes, breast lump, etc
I have noticed the pea size lump on my right breast that is hard and painful to the touch. Now it is tender just to even wear a bra. My son hit me this afternoon in the chest and i almost cried it hurt so bad. The skin is still pretty much the same I havent really noticed any change there. I have noticed that my nipple (right side) keeps going in on its self. like a innie belly button.
Have you seen a breast specialist or your doctor for your symptoms?
Not yet I am trying to get an appointment, I get my care through theVA so things take a little bit longer.
