Breast Lump or Mass
Breast pain can be sharp, dull, constant or intermittent. Breast pain can have a multitude of causes including but not limited to stress, caffeine intake, hormone imbalances, musculoskeletal trigger points and abnormal changes to the breast tissue. There are a number of ways to investigate the causes like lab work and imaging. If you are experiencing breast pain, contact us for a consultation to discuss potential causes and treatment options and to have a clinical breast exam with a licensed provider.
A breast lump or mass can be found on self breast exam or clinical breast exam. Sometimes a lump or mass cannot be felt and is only found on breast imaging such as a mammogram or ultrasound. If you have found a breast lump yourself or have a breast lump found on a breast exam with your primary care provider, it is recommended that you see a dedicated breast specialist for appropriate work up. Contact us to set up a consultation with one of our licensed breast specialists for recommendations unique to your needs.
An abscess is a painful infection in the breast or axillary area. It is important to follow up for further evaluation and treatment. If you suspect you have an abscess or lump on or around your breast area, contact us to schedule an appointment with a licensed provider who specializes in treating the breast tissue and skin.
