    Exclamation lump on my breast?

    all of a suden i feel this lump on my left breast. it feels like the glands (right side of my left breast) are hard, from the chest area down to the areola area. it hurts when touched. I have been BF for 10 months and this is the first time i felt this. Anyone has an idea what is this? is it normal? should i be worried?

    could it be a plugged duct?

    It sounds like a blocked duct. Here is a good link:

    i agree sounds like a clogged duct. massage, apply heat, nurse often, plenty of rest and fluids and an antinflammatory will help. It can turn to mastitis if you are not proactive. Good luck and hope you feel better. Make sure you call you doctor if you start to run a fever or get flu like symptoms!

    i did apply heat to the area last night ang massaged it while nursing. i heard him gulped down a couple of thick stuff early morning and the pain on my breast went away. i still feel a little hardness/lump close to the chest (top part of breast) and i also noticed a white spot on my nipple this morning.

    how would i know it's totally de-clogged?

    thank you for the responses!
