breast lump with fluid and mass

My daughter had a baby 10 weeks ago. She has a lump in her breast that is part fluid and part mass.  The baby doesn't like to nurse on that side. I can't find any info re possible breast cancer immediately post delivery.  She will have a needle biopsy Monday. We are both very scared. Thank you.

Dear oldwawa:  There are many possible explanations for breast lumps but a biopsy is the only way to know for sure if there is any question.  While it is not common, it is possible to develop breast cancer during and after pregnancy.

I am so sorry that I cannot help you... it may be it is mastitis, so hold onto the fact that some 80% of women who present with a solid mass in their breasts have non malignant diagnoses. It is rarely an occurrence of breast cancer, but it does unfortunately happen.

My prayers and thoughts are with you and your daughter for a benign diagnosis.
Take care,
Liz.
