Pregnant, hard lump in right breast, flaky skin, colored patches, redness, dots, occasional itching. Biopsy advised. Suggestions?

I have a lump in my right breast it is hard and does not move when myself or doctor felt it. I'am 22 weeks pregnant and the doctor has ordered to get a biopsy on my breast but recently my skin on my breast and between then have become flaky skin coloured patches. I also have redness and dots in the surrounding areas. Sometimes it gets itchy. I'm worried what could it be?

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. A hard lump in the breast is always suspicious and should be biopsied as soon as possible. The skin changes and flakiness is due to the hormonal changes during pregnancy and will subside with time. It should not be a reason to delay the biopsy.

Hoping for the best.
