If you are seeing a Dr. and have a lump in your breast and he/she has not told you what is causing the lump or hasn't told you anything about it then you need to see another Dr. If the Dr. isn't giving you the answers you want to hear then we have no answers for you here either. It is very difficult for me to believe that any Dr. would be ignoring your many problems ......    Regards ....

I'm not sure why you felt the need to share this latest information but being a virgin and being healthier than most has absolutely nothing to do with having breast lumps. If you are truly concerned then see your Dr. for an examination.

I think it would be wise of you to follow Japdip advice.Having two lumps and missing your periods for 7 months...doesn't look too healthy to me.Lumps in the breast and missing periods are serious matters and you certainly need to have these abnormalities checked out as soon as possible.You have asked for advice and this is the best advice we could give you...* go to your Doctor*.Best wishes.

I would suggest that you see your personal Dr. about these lumps that you think you feel. He/She can do a breast exam and maybe order an Ultrasound to determine the nature of the lumps. The best advice is the advice you get from your own Dr. who knows you and your medical history and can examine you. Take care

You are quite young and you need to learn breast self examination and know little about nodes, lumps etc.You have to do self examination every month and know about the consistency of your breast at different places.Every year it is advisable to visit a clinician for breast examination.

All lumps are not cancers.

Your period might have stopped because of Pregnancy, please go for a pregnancy test to confirm. If not you have to go to a gynaecologist to know the reasons for no periods.
Unfortunately, during pregnancy it is more difficult to accomplish because of all the changes your breasts are going through. Your breasts are growing in size, are tender, and sometimes may even be lumpy due to all the preparations for your baby.

You may also have fibrcystic changes:
Fibrocystic changes are associated with hormonal shifts in estrogen and progesterone, which affect the breast tissue. During the menstrual cycle, the breasts swell as the milk glands and ducts enlarge and the breasts retain water. After menstruation the breast swelling goes down and the breasts return to normal.

Visit a clinician immidiately.
