1. Engorgement, the breast is unobstructed, the milk is not discharged and is deposited in the breast, and it gradually forms a lump, which will cause pain when pressed.

2. Blocked milk, the breast is blocked, the milk duct is blocked, the milk can't come out, the milk is blocked in the deep layer and gradually forms a lump, the swelling of the milk may lead to blockage of the milk duct, mastitis or breast infection.
