Better to show it to a Breast Surgeon or a Surgical oncologist. They would take a detailed history and examine you and if need be, ask for an ultrasound examination. Lumps in the breast could be due to various other causes like cysts, fibroadenoma, fibrocystic disease, traumatic fat necrosis, granulomatous mastitis, phylloides tumor and cancer. Fibroadenoma is the most common cause at your age. The diagnosis is established with triple assessment, which includes clinical examination, radiology (ultrasound or mammogram) and if need be pathology with FNAC or preferably core Biopsy. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further or if coming to mumbai, you can see me in the Clinic or hospital as per your convenience.
