I'd advise you go to her genral GP, she can get it checked and if its a cyst, which i believe it could be, it can be drained. All pretty much painless and easy [Smile] [Just to explain what a cyst is it's almost like a little sack with a goey liquid in it and they're usually perfectly fine]

Im sure heather or someone will write more aswell [Smile]

A large lump in the breast isn't actually something we expect to see, so for sure, she should go to her doctor and get this looked into.

Who knows, but breast lumps can be serious, so it's not something anyone wants to guess about. Again, she should ask her doctor to look at this.

I know that if you drink a lot of caffine it can cause lumps in breasts. I know when I went in for my first check I told her I drink a lot of caffine so she expected to feel lumps. But as others have said she should have it check out for sure.
