Q.

Lump

Good day

My mom noticed / felt a lump close to my six month old daughters left nipple / breast.

Should I take her to the paediatrician for tests or is there nothing to worry about. What is the cause of the lump.

Please advise.

Thank you

Paediatrician

This is very common and nothing to be concerned about. The lump is a result of hormonal stimulation while your baby was still in the womb. The lump will disappear by itself.
