hi an thanks for the question,
lumps in the breast in the yound females is usually due to benign tumours called fibroadenomas. In the elderly, especially blumps of acute onset, its very important to do a critical evaluation. This could range from being a cold abscess
to a breast cyst
. In a woman who has never done a mammographym this is an opportunity for her to do it. A clinical evaluationn evaluation to ascertain the actual nature of the breast, to check whether there is a collection and locoregional lymphnode enlargements are key issues important during the valuation process.
I suggest you visit your primary care
physician or gynecologist for a proper evaluation.
Thanks and best regards,
