LUMP IN BREAST WHILE BREASTFEEDING
I am breastfeeding at the moment. My baby is nearly 6 months old. I have a very "eina" lump in my left breast. I have heard that while breastfeeding your "ducts" can get blocked.

Any advice how to solve the problem?

Try to express as much as you can so that the breasts are empty. If this does not help, see your doctor to check that there isn't an abscess forming.
