What your breast lump may be

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Women who detect a change in their breast composition may fear it’s a sign of cancer, but it could be something else. Dr. Thomas Heck, a breast surgeon with Gem City Surgical Breast Care Center, said there is a long list of non-cancerous breast conditions. He said the three most commonly seen include cysts, fibroadenomas and hyperplasia of the breast.

Bottom line, he said is to do your self breast exams and if you feel something unusual ask your doctor about it right away, and follow the screening guidelines from your doctor.
