Weird lumps on breasts.. Is this normal after after having my son? Or can this be breast cancer?

I had my son 7 days ago my breasts started getting as hard as a rock and leaking 4 days ago. Ive been in pain since im not beastfeeding. well the pain went away but they are still hard and leaking which i understand but since last night only my right boob hurts BAD and only my right boob has lumps on it not alot. i would say 2 or 3 lumps . My cousin just text me since she just had a baby and she said not to worry that its just my milk glands.... is this true?

  • Most likely milk glands. Give it a few days & it will disappear.

  • If you have a doctor you should contact him/her. Just in case. Lumps in your breast are nothing to think lightly about

  • From personal experience I would say that it is your milk getting backed up in your ducts since you are not breastfeeding. However, like louise2 said...I would give it a week to see if they clear up and if not go to your dr. if you get a fever though you should call your dr. immediatly to make sure you don't have an infection. Good luck, hang in there :(

  • because you say that your breast hurt really bad, could mean you have cloged milk glands, which can cause an infection.
