A partially hidden nodule. Usually benign.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
A semioccult nodule in the breast means a partially hidden nodule in the breast tissue. This can be caused by fibroadenoma of the breast, a cyst or a benign breast tumor.
Sometimes small noncancerous lumps can occur in the breast usually because of hormonal influence.
You need to undergo checkup and if needed go for mammogram which will help in diagnosing the cause.
Depending on the result you can take the treatment.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
