So I have been reading up about lumps in the breast for the last half hour or so because my best friend just found a lump in her breast and now she is so cared that she has breast cancer! The lump is painless, and apparently so is breast cancer. But I did found that there is one other thing it could possibly be - fibro adenoma. Do these two have the same symptoms?

Hello Bertie! If your friend has a fibroadenoma the lump may be rigid, painless, and transferable, and it may sometimes have sharp borders or be spongy. In terms of fibroadenoma changes, the size of these lumps is known to increase during pregnancy. Also, if she has fibroadenomas, her breast size will no longer remain symmetrical, and the surface of the breast will show accentuated veins. There is also some amount of redness, and the skin ultimately ulcerates. With regard to the symptoms of fibroadenoma, the signs and symptoms can be identified by self-examining the breast. Since pain is not always experienced, regular breast self-examination will help in early detection. Fibroadenomas are: Round with distinct borders, Easily moved, Firm or rubbery, Painless. Normal breast tissue in healthy women often feels lumpy or nodular. If she detects the presence of any new breast lumps or if a previously evaluated lump seems to have grown or otherwise changed, she should make an appointment with her doctor to get it checked out. As for the breast cancer often there are no outward signs of that you can see or feel. If there are outward signs, the more common ones include a lump, an area of thickening, or a dimple in the breast. Less common signs include breast swelling and redness or an enlarged underarm lymph node. Still, it's extremely important that she sees her doctor if she's worried that she might have breast cancer. Signs and symptoms of breast cancer may include: a breast lump or thickening that feels different from the surrounding tissue, bloody discharge from the nipple, change in the size or shape of a breast, changes to the skin over the breast, such as dimpling, inverted nipple, peeling or flaking of the nipple skin, redness or pitting of the skin over your breast, like the skin of an orange. I hope it's not a breast cancer. All the best.
