Breast lumps can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. Examples include scars, fibroadenomas (benign fibrous growths), lipomas (benign fatty growths), cysts or overgrowth of ducts.
breast lump is a localized swelling, protuberance, bulge, or bump in the breast that feels different from the breast tissue around it or the breast tissue in the same area of the other breast.
There are different reasons why breast lumps develop. Most lumps are not cancerous and do not pose any risk.
Causes include infection, trauma, fibroadenoma, cysts,fat necrosis, or fibrocystic breasts. Breast lumps may develop in both males and females, but they are much more common in females.
Most breast lumps are noncancerous, which means they are benign. You might be surprised to find a breast lump, but it’s important to remember that it may not affect your long-term health.
However, a breast lump can be a sign of cancer. It’s wise to always seek a medical evaluation of any lumps or swelling you discover on your breasts.
Although breasts are commonly associated with women, breast tissue is present in both men and women. Your hormones affect this tissue. Hormonal changes can cause lumps to form and, in some cases, to naturally disappear. You can develop breast lumps at any age.
Some babies develop breast lumps due to the estrogen they get from their mothers during birth. These generally clear up as the estrogen leaves their bodies.
Pre-pubescent girls sometimes get breast lumps that feel tender. These usually go away naturally during puberty. Adolescent boys can also get breast lumps during puberty. These are temporary and usually disappear in a few months as well.
A person who detects a breast lump should have it evaluated as soon as possible.

How To Prevent Breast Lumps Naturally
To minimize discomfort associated with breast cysts, you might try these measures:
1. Wear a well-fitted, supportive bra.
If your breast cysts are painful, supporting your breasts may help relieve some discomfort.
2. Apply a compress: If cysts are painful, either a warm or cool compress can offer relief. Applying an ice pack can also relieve pain.
3. Avoud Caffeine:
There's no evidence linking caffeine and breast cysts. However, some women find symptom relief after eliminating caffeine from their diets. Consider reducing or eliminating caffeine — in beverages, as well as in foods such as chocolate — to see if your symptoms improve.
4.Consider trying over-the-counter counter pain medications if your doctor recommends them. Some types of breast pain may be eased by the use of acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn, others).
