I have a lump in my left breast which feels hard & tender when pressed. My period is coming soon & usually both breasts feel tender but without lumps. Should I be worried or how long should I monitor?

A hard lump in the breast is of concern.
I would advise you to consult a doctor for proper examination and evaluation.

Dear @worriedmum 
A breast lump may be due to several conditions. You need to see a doctor, for a thorough history to asses your risk, physical examination, ultrasound breasts. Depending on the findings, some lumps need a biopsy. I note that this question was posted 2 months ago, in May 2020! I hope that you have already gotten this attended to!

Thanks so much for the push. I haven't got down to it but will make an appointment. Does your clinic provide these examination or do you have anywhere to recommend?

Yes, I'm a breast surgeon. Current main pratice is at Thomson Medical Centre- can call 6252 5535 to make an appointment. The staff will advise on relevant imaging etc to smoothen the process. Otherwise, any breast doctor in Singapore can assist you. Do get it checked out!
