Lump found in breast

Posted , 4 users are following.

A month and a bit ago I found a lump in my left breast under my nipple. It is the size of a grape and is smooth and is easily moveable. I went to my doc and he is sending me for a ultra sound and a mammogram at the end of this month. The only other symptom I had was a bit of pain in my breast but not an uncomfortable amount. I have read every article about whether it could be a cyst or a lump or whatever. I feel like it's just a cyst or something benign. I am 18 years old by the way. Anyways, what my question is, is can birth control give you lumps or anything? I was on tri cyclen for 6 months but my doctor made me come off of it when I saw him last (2 or 3 weeks ago) and today I noticed that the lump seems a little smaller, and I was wondering if maybe the extra hormones in my birth control could have lead to it!

    I wouldn't have thought that a birth control pill can cause lumps in the breast but I am no expert so I can't be 100% sure.

    I really feel for you because I know from personal experience how worrying a time like this can be but you have absolutely done the right thing by consulting your doctor.  I sincerely hope that all goes well with your mammogram and ultrasound and that your result is 'clear' and your mind put at rest xx

    I have my Lump removal when I was 12 years old and also 3 years ago. But tested to be ok too. Removal due to the size is quite big. Have monitored for a year or so but the size seems like its growing slowly. So doc adv to take it out.
