Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
No.A breast lump need to be investigated first.What is the type and how much big it is.If it is a normal fibroadenoma or similar benign one,you can have the pills but before that,few investigations is required.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
