Health Care Assistant, Naomi Bucknell, preparing scan results

Breast tissue often has a lumpy, nodular feel to it.

The degree of 'lumpiness' varies quite a lot from one person to the next and breast tissue is often more lumpy to feel just prior to a menstrual bleed.

Sometimes one area of a breast may feel more nodular than elsewhere in the breast and this may be interpreted by the woman (or her GP) as a discrete and unusual lump.

Breast tissue nodularity is a very common and harmless condition.
