Diseases may Cause Breast Lump

There are lumps in the breast, which may be caused by these diseases

A strong breast is a symbol of women's beauty and a charm of women. The health of the breast is closely related to the health of women. If you don't pay attention in daily life, various breast diseases will come to your door. 

When it comes to breast lumps, many people's sensitive and fragile nerves are tossed, and they must first associate with breast cancer. Admittedly, breast lumps are one of the clinical manifestations of breast cancer, but not all breast lumps are caused by breast cancer, and there are many reasons for breast lumps. Many common breast diseases can lead to the formation of breast lumps, which requires calm analysis , Pay attention to distinguish.

In addition to breast cancer, what other diseases can cause breast lumps?

1. Mastitis

Mastitis is a relatively common type of breast disease in women, and it mostly occurs in breastfeeding women. As an inflammatory disease, when there is too much milk accumulation in the breast and it cannot be emptied in time, it is easy to cause mastitis. The outbreak of mastitis is often accompanied by breast tenderness, breast lumps, breast red fever and other symptoms. If not treated in time, it may even develop into a breast abscess, endangering women's breast health.

2. Breast hyperplasia

The appearance of mammary gland hyperplasia often leads to chest pain in women, and the presence of lumps can also be found when touching the chest. In general, breast hyperplasia is more likely to occur in women's menstruation. The volume of the mass will be significantly smaller after menstruation, and the pain will also be reduced.

Some Diseases may Cause Breast Lump

3. Breast fibroids

Breast fibroma is a benign tumor with a high incidence in the female population. Under normal circumstances, 18 to 25 years of age is the highest incidence of breast fibroma, women over 40 years of age have a greatly reduced probability of breast fibroma. Breast lumps caused by breast fibroma are mostly round or oval, with a hard texture, generally no more than four centimeters in diameter, and the boundaries are more clear and clear.

Unlike other breast diseases, breast lumps caused by breast fibroma generally do not cause pain. Because the growth rate of breast fibroids is very slow, therefore, when the masses of breasts have not changed in size or shape for a long time, they can be considered as breast fibroids.

In recent years, the prevalence and mortality of breast cancer in cities in China have been increasing year by year. Breast cancer has also become one of the major diseases that threaten women's health. 

It is a good thing to understand the prevention and treatment of breast cancer and the severity of the disease, but too sensitive to fear will not reduce the probability of women suffering from breast cancer. Therefore, compared with being in a hurry, crying for the sky, when the breast appears a lump, you should go to the hospital for examination in time, and after the cause is identified, targeted treatment is performed to ensure that the body recovers as soon as possible.
