A breast lump

Breast tenderness is a common complaint amongst women, especially during their fertile years. Fortunately the majority of women with breast tenderness have no underlying pathology, e.g. cancer and the changes reflect changes in the body brought about by hormone and other changes in the menstrual cycle, or indeed pregnancy. Similarly a tender breast lump is often a cyst or a benign fibroadenoma. A painless lump is always a cause for concern If you experience any breast changes which cause you concern we can have you investigated promptly and arrange any treatment if required.
