Brief Answer:
Bilateral mammography test.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Since you are having a lump in your breast below the nipple and is hurting before your periods I would advise you to do bilateral mammography test.

If any space occupying lesion is found in the test then biopsy has to be done to rule out malignancy.

If you have any more queries I will be glad to help.

Regards.

Brief Answer:
IVF hormones do not cause breast cancer.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Welcome back...

IVF hormones do not cause breast cancer.

In fact, if you do seven or more cycles of IVF then the risk of development of breast cancer in later life reduces by 50%.

Stay healthy.
