Breast Exam

How can you check your breast for abnormalities? Last night when I was expressing milk (I am breastfeeding) my left breast felt a little lumpier and harder inside than normal. I don’ t know if I am imagining this or if there is something to worry about. what should my breast feel like and what should I look out for?

It is difficult to assess breasts while you are breastfeeding. The lumpiness is probably due to milk production. You will have to wait till you have stopped breastfeeding.
