Before taking the breast lumps into the consideration for our study we must understand that the breasts of a woman or girl go through diverse range of changes or transformations throughout her life and the size, shape and other attributes of the breasts continue to go through numerous kinds of changes from her childhood days to her maturity in various ways and in this context only breast lumps should be taken as the focal point of our present discussion. Some of the main changes that occur in breasts of women have no relation to cancer and can cause breast lumps. These changes which normally happen in any woman’s life are related with menstruation process, common symptoms of breast growth and other physiological transformations relating to growth, pregnancy, sexual experience, etc. Though normally majority of the cases of the breast cancer begin to take shape from breast lumps, breast lumps have no prioritized relationship with the breast cancer. Here we would discuss regarding some of the most important aspects of the breast lumps and its relation with the breast cancer.
Can hormonal behaviors cause breast pains? Is breast pain related with breast lumps or cancer?
Your breast is having several glands as well as several ducts that directly connect to the nipple. When a girl reaches the stage of puberty the change of hormones cause the ducts of the breasts to grow and become inflated and in the process fat substance continue to be deposited in the tissues of the breast and thus the breasts continue to grow and this is one of the vital changes in the breasts that every woman must undergo at some point of her life. The hormonal changes that make the breasts to continue to grow may cause pain in the breasts at the stage of the puberty and this pain has no relation with the breast lumps or for that matter with the syndromes of breast cancer. A big majority of women who experience breast pain have a problem called cyclic mastalgia. This problem is characterized with pain in the breasts at the time of menstrual symptoms and the girl is relieved in most cases when the periods begin. The problem is associated with the hormonal changes in the body that actually propels the pain. During the time of the breastfeeding the tissues of the breasts can be subject to infection and this may cause breast pain. In the discussion above the normal physiological changes and factors corresponding to them there is hardly any relation between the breast pain and breast lumps. The breast lumps that cause breast pain would be discussed here below.
The type of breast lumps
Breast cysts are a type of breast lump but obviously come under the category of non-cancerous breast lumps that may cause immense pain or no pain at all. Breast cysts are typically fluid filled rubber like small lumps that are felt under the skin and are caused by hormonal changes in the menstrual cycle.
This type of non-cancerous lumps is produced in the breast primarily because of the plugged ducts that can be resulted from hormone stimulation or other injury. This type of breast lumps has no relation with the breast cancer and in most cases do not require much of medical attention even for its treatment.
This type of breast lumps occur due to concentration of fat substances in the breast tissues and the symptom is that the normal fat cells within the breast would form round lumps. Other symptoms of this type of breast lumps may include pain, redness of the breasts, bruising, etc.

Various aspects of breast pain and breast lumps as discussed are served to serve one important medical purpose, that is to make people aware of various types of breast pain and breast lump syndromes that should not be panicked about as symptoms of breast cancer before judging the cause of the syndrome and proper diagnosis.
