Most breast lumps, particularly in younger women, are not caused by cancer but are benign, non-cancerous lumps. Such lumps can include cysts, fibroadenomas and pseudolumps

Cysts are fluid filled cavities within normal breast tissue. A cyst can move around and can change in size during your menstrual cycle.

Fibroadenomas are benign overgrowths of supportive tissues and glands, which appear as hard or firm lumps in the breast.

Pseudolumps are non breast tissue lumps originating from scar tissues, necrosis of fat tissue, etc.

Hence You might consult with your doctor, for a examination which will help to make a proper diagnosis and get you a proper medical advice.
