    lump in breast while nursing?

    Advertisements
    Is it normal to have a hard spot in your boob? I've got a hard round ball-ish thing in my right boob, can that happen when you're nursing?

    I've never noticed it before and it doesn't hurt at all.

    It could be the start of a blocked duct.

    How would I know if I had one? Would it hurt?

    From what I've hear they hurt like hell. I have lumps sometimes. They go away and are not painful. Could just be a full duct. ??

    maybe massage the area when you nurse it can help

    I get lumps sometimes. As Molly eats from that side, I just rub the bump and it goes down

    It usually only happens when I'm really full. It only starts to hurt if I go too long with it there.

    I used to get them..just a plugged duct. Sometimes nursing wouldn't get rid of it so I'd take a hot shower or bath then pump... One time I had one that wouldn't go away for three days!

    I've had them without having kids or nursing, it could be a swollen lymph node (they don't always hurt). But the other moms probably know more than I do
