What causes lump formation and calcification in breast?

I had a stereotatic breast biopsy done and developed a huge lump on the top of my breast, the biopsy was done on the opposite side of the breast. What is this lump about the size of a small egg and painful to touch? The stereotatic biopsy was done because I had about 8 calcifications. Also, do you know what causes breast calcifications?

Hi,

As you have undergone SBB already, you might be knowing the biopsy results. Breast calcification is not something common. It's related to some conditions like benign breast cyst with may later turn necrosed and gets calcified. Another condition in with breast calcification may occur in breast cancer. You need to evaluate it properly and may need to visit a gynecologic oncologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Naira Jahangir, OB and GYN Specialist

Ok here it goes.....3 days ago I found three lumps in my right breast. Two are small, pea-size, then there is this huge lump(one each day). The entire lower quadrant! It is warm to touch, the veins are prominent in my areola, my nipple is sticking further out not in which is good I think. Went to a clinic today, and she gave me antibiotics to try. So all is good but it is so excruciatingly painful, I m starting to get pretty concerned. Should I be? I ve searched and searched and all I can find similar is cancer or abcess? Any suggestions? I m not pregnant, nor have I had children.
