There are certain areas of the body more prone to lumps than others. One of these common areas is the breasts. Breasts, in both males and females, are made mainly of fatty tissues prone to benign lumps. Other lumps may also appear here, such as cysts and milk ducts in a lactating woman. Specifically, you should see a doctor if you notice lumps in areas known for cancerous growths, such as the breast, throat, and testicles.
