There are several types of benign (non-cancerous) breast lump, most of which are harmless and are caused by hormonal changes that occur at different times in a woman's life, such as during the menstrual cycle..

Common types of benign breast lump include:

Fibroadenoma – a firm lump that moves around easily in the breast and is more common in younger women
Breast cyst – a smooth, firm fluid-filled lump most commonly seen in women aged 30 to 60
breast abscess – a painful collection of pus that forms under the skin of the breast, usually as the result of a bacterial infection.
Consult Surgeon for further evaluation and treatment...
