Breast Lumps

Most breast lumps are due to fatty tissue that can become lumpy as we get older. Lumps can also be due to cysts. Occasionally, particularly in young women, a lump can be a fibroadenoma , which is a non-cancerous overgrowth of the breast tissue (like a mole on the skin). Therefore, if you find a lump, it's most likely not a cancer, but it still has to be checked by your doctor.
