What causes bump on breast?

i have a swollen sore bump on my areola, i just noticed it and it located right next to my nipple on my left breast in the areola area. the bump is semi hard and the size of a pea and the pain is similar to a zit but there is no head and i tried to squeeze it but it just rubbed a little of the skin off (stupid to do i know). I am also in the middle of menstrual cycle - should I be worried? Now that i know its there it even throbs a little.

Hello welcom to HCM. I can understand your concern. As i dont know your age, ,i guess you as as a middle age,not in menopausal age, i guess you are having fibroadenoma. This is simple mass and firm in consistency and it slips when you try to hold ans squeeze. Permanent treatement is removal by surgery. Please take an appointment with gynaecologist for further treatement. If you are menopausal age , you should confirm whether it is not a malignant swelling. Take care.
