What causes a breast lump?

I am a 31 year old white female with one pregnancy delivered via c section. I have a history of lumps in my Breast and under my arm which are palpable and painful and can become as large as a racquet balls. At present I have approximately 5 lumps currently just in my left Breast. Ultrasound today revealed nothing. Even the radiologist came in and he was amazed that these palpable lumps cannot be seen on ultrasound

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi,dear ,Scotts,thanks for the query to my HCM virtual online clinic.Its my pleasure to help you .After the indepth study of your query My diagnosis -is -Fibroadenosis of left breast.Tenderness at the spot is due to hormonal changes with inflammatiory changes in left breast.I would advise Not to Worry and keep a watch by -Self-Palpation daily.Report to Surgeon if the lump grows in size.Tb NSAIds, and Cold compresses would reduce the pain and worry with it.Special treatment would be given if the problem is severe so as to controll the size of the painful lumps.Dont worry and act fast.This would solve your worrysome query.Hope this would solve your query.Wellcome to my HCM clinic once again.Have a Good Day.
