    hiya, for the past 3/4 days ive had a lump near my nipple its on the coloured area around it, you no the little bumps you get well its one of them but seems to be HUGE about 4 times the size and its very sore,
    its not got a head or anything on it so its not a spot and its not soft its hard it just really hurts and im worried its something serious :(
    any ideas as to what it could be? i could include a pic if it would help (ob not of my whoole nipple but of the "thing")
    thanks
    manda xx

    i have something similar under my arm hun, m/w said it feels like a milk duct though..

    if it's painful to the touch then it won't be anything serious, just an enlarged lymph node or something. when do you see your m/w next?

    what kind of shape is it btw?

    i have like a spot on the area surrounding the nipple,its kind of a lump and sounds like what you describe but mine doesnt hurt at all.midwife said it was nothing to worry about.its nearly the size of my nipple too!It might be worth while mentioning it to your midwife though especially if it puts your mind at rest.

    I have a hard area in one of my BBs which I had checked by the MW and she said it felt like blocked ducts but to get it checked by the GP. The GP said she could feel the hardness on both BBS so its nothing to worry about..apparently its normal and your BBs changing to prepare for BF.

    I would get it checked though, to put your mind at rest if nothing else.

    when I was breast feeding James and had blocked ducts I found having a warm bath helped. It would help loosen up the blockage as the warmth encourages the flow
