A ball like feeling in my breast

Hi, I am 17 years old and I felt a ball like stuff in my right breast near nipple. Sometimes I have pain in the same breast and the ball doesn't move it's like attached to the surface. Can anyone please explain what does this mean. Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum. Thank you for your question and sorry for the delay in response.  First, that is excellent that you are performing self examinations on your breasts. That's a great habit to get into.  My thought was you were beginning a premenstrual period which is when this happened.  Hormonal changes at that time can cause this in your milk ducts. Did it go away? https://www.newhealthadvisor.org/movable-lump-in-breast.html  If not, I'd think more like a lipoma which is a benign fatty tumor or a small cyst. Let us know if this went away.
