New lump found under Breast Bone!!!
HI, I have been speaking to my Ex partner yesterday and she says she has found a lump which appears to be under the breast bone the lump feels solid but i think she said the lump moves,she has just come off the pill about 2 weeks ago if that could be anything to do with it??? Please I`d be happy for any advice
Thank you for your question. The lump she is feeling may not be associated with cessation of the pill. However, many lumps are associated with hormone changes and can disappear. Any lump that persists after two menstrual cycles needs to be diagnosed by a physician. It can be a benign(non cancer) lump such as a cyst or fibroadenoma but needs to be studied with diagnostic tests.
