Breast Lump in Children

What are breast lumps in children?

In most cases, breast lumps in children are types of lumps that may be caused by a type of congenital conditions, neonatal infections, fibroadenoma in female, or gynecomastia in males, breast carcinoma, or even rhabdomyosarcoma. In some cases, when a child has a lump in their breast, then this may also be caused by uneven breast development, meaning that one breast is developing at an earlier rate than the other one. Below are questions regarding breast lumps in children that are answered by an Expert.

What could cause a limp in the left breast of a one year old?

In most cases, when a child that is one year old develops breast lumps then it may be caused from the child being born with breast tissues under the nipple. This is generally caused by the hormones that the mother passes onto the baby while she is pregnant. In some cases with the older girls, the lumps can be caused by a spike in their estrogen levels. In most cases, then parent would not need to get this checked out unless the nipple or area is red or inflamed as well as tenderness.

If a nine year old female child has a lump in their right breast that hurts and seems to be getting bigger, should the parent follow the advice of the doctor who said that it was just developing breast buds and to wear a sports bra and take Ibuprofen? How long would it take for the changes to be seen?

In most cases, when the preteen girl is developing, then they may develop the breast tissues at a different rate for both breasts. This development may be sore at times and in most cases, the doctor will recommend the use of Ibuprofen as well as a sports bra until the development of the breasts are complete.

What can cause a breast lump in a 7 year old boy that necessitates appointment with an endocrine specialist?

In most cases, when a boy is developing, then it is generally not uncommon for them to develop a lump in the tissue of their breast. This generally happens closer to puberty, but can also happen at the age of seven. The appointment may generally just be a check up, but does not generally mean that it is cancer or that the child is going through early puberty.

If a twelve year old boy has a breast lump, what should the parent do?

In most cases, when a twelve year old boy develops a lump in their breast then this can either be gynecomastia or enlargement of breast during puberty. This type of breast lump can be caused by the hormone changes in the boy close to puberty or during puberty. In most cases, the lump will go away with no treatment, but the parent may want to have it checked out by the doctor to be sure.

Breast lumps in children may cause alarm in most parents. When a parent is dealing with breast lumps in children then they may have questions regarding what could cause the lumps, how to treat the lumps, or even the type of lump it may be. When these questions arise, then the parent may want to seek the answers from an Expert.

  • Hi, this is probably a strange problem but one I'm concerned

    Hi, this is probably a strange problem but one I'm concerned about none the less. My son who is 12 years old was doing the Haka (the tribal dance that the All Blacks rugby team use as their good luck pre match) which involved repeated slapping of the upper front thighs. My son was doing this in physical education today and being one of the boys he was probably using unnecessary force. He has just shown me his legs and there are tiny pin prick bruises on the thigh area used. I have checked the rest of his body which is completely clear, no new or old bruising. Do you think there is any cause for concern with Brian. Many thanks, ***** *****
  • my son is 11 yrs old. he's 5'2", 130lbs. big boy for his

    my son is 11 yrs old. he's 5'2", 130lbs. big boy for his age. he has mild autism and his diet is very simple. he only has a selective few things that he will actually eat. chicken nuggets, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and he likes slim fast. that is it. he won't eat any other foods. its impossible to get him to try anything. he is real healthy according to the dr. my concern is his bowel movements. he has a bowel movement every 3-4 days. and they are abnormally huge. big enough to the point were they do not flush down the toilet. I don't want to go into details but they are larger then your average size baked potato. every time he uses the bathroom, he clogs the toilet. and that is not normal. I ask him if it hurts and he says no. is there anything he can take over the counter that can make his stools more soft and smaller. or make him go more often.
