Am I a candidate for breast lump removal?
Most lumps don’t require treatment, the gynecologist will recommend surgery if you notice skin changes on the breast, nipple discharge, or increases its size.
There is follow-up care for benign breast conditions?
If the lump was a cyst, fibroadenoma, or another type of lump that didn't need to be removed you might need annual screenings as a precaution. If you had surgery, you might need more intensive screening.
Can the lump become cancerous?
Some benign breast conditions like atypical hyperplasia are associated with a slight risk of developing breast cancer. However, family and personal medical history can be additional risk factors.
