Is the lump in the area of the milk glands or in another area ?? It seems that it could be one and the same or perhaps not. I would advise you to see a Breast Specialist regarding this problem. If it is a ductal issue then some form of treatment is available. I would want a better answer or some solution for your complaint. Regards ....

I also have Fibrocystic Breasts.
I'm going to get a pregnancy test tonight, and I am going to take one although I know it is too early to tell I just want some piece of mind until then, then when my expected period misses (if it does) which is in about 2 weeks, I will take another. Also my glands on my throat are swollen and it hurts to swallow. I also have no appetite, I know the swollen glands are from the sickness, but the lack of appetite may be from pregnancy? Someone please give me some good advice!!
I have lost over 17 pounds ( ok not such a bad thing, but not for a good reason), my back of my throat is swollen as well as my voice box, which are swollen quite badly. I cough to the extreme as to try and clear my throat.. to the point where I vomit, and my head feels like it is going to explode. I have had a Upper GI done and it came back no problems.. I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
You can slowly stop the production of breast milk by compressing the breast tissue tightly and I mean tightly. It does not happen quickly but it will speed along the process. Do not stimulate your breasts and or your nipples in any way as that will continue to stimulate milk production. Good luck, I know it can be very painful and remember, no matter how baddly they swell and hurt, you will only prolong the drying process if you pump to help the pain.
Even if I put a clean bra, in a few hours it will be smelling strong. Sometimes the smell reminds me of dry breast milk. Like the smell of your bra when you are breastfiding and some milk drips and you do not have a chance to change it within the next few hours. This smell started about 5 yearws ago, probably in the beginging of my pre-menopause.
A woman's breasts are made up of fat, connective tissue, and thousands of tiny glands (known as lobules) which produce milk. If a woman has a baby, the milk is delivered to the nipple through tiny tubes called ducts, which allow her to breastfeed. Breast cancer usually shows as a lump or thickening in the breast tissue, although most breast lumps are not cancerous. There are several different types of breast cancer, which can develop in different parts of the breast.
I know that in the last few months of pregnancy and right after birth the breast grow larger while producing milk. But this early? any advice will be greatly appreciated.
I have extreme soreness on the right side of my breast near my armpit. It doesn't neccesarily hurt unless I touch it, or if my arm brushes against it, and laying on it slightly hurts. So, I've of coarse avoided laying on that side or touching it. When I touch it, It feels like a sore muscle would with a slight stabbing pain. My breast does appear slightly puffy where the pain is, but no discoloration. My OB has felt around the area and can't find anything suspicious.
During each menstrual cycle, breast tissue sometimes swells because hormonal stimulation causes the breast’s milk glands and ducts to enlarge, and in turn, the breast retain water. The breast may feel swollen and painful. Try to cut down on your caffeine intake,(Coffee,chocolate colas) fatty food and salt. Primrose oil (3 grams a day) could also help lessen the pain. If the pain does not improve,you may ask your doctor to order an Ultrasound to make sure that there isn't an underlying problem.
My grandmother had breast cancer in her later years, but that's the only family history. Could it be swollen lymph nodes? If so, what causes lymph nodes to become inflamed?
I had this as well, and had it removed before I had my kids. Funny, though, when my milk came in after each pregnancy, this area was swollen again! However, when I stopped the "engorged" stage, it went back down. It was a great surgery for me, b/c the lump rubbed against my bra when my arm was down, and did cause some discomfort.
Since then, I complained for months about sore swollen breasts and nipples, test come back as lactating breasts . Since Jan/09, my doctor has had me on 4 difference strenghts of thyroid medication.. Now I am suffering from what they said might be a high libido, this is not sexual and it is very painful and driving me insane. My organs seem to have also swollen and I have little control over my bladder and the bowels are acting up. I also will vomit bile for no reason.
i stop breast feeding my baby last week to see if she was allergic to the foods i was eating cuz she crys at every bm. well anyways shes goin to a specialist next week . bt nw im having very bad pain in my breast.
Discharge is usualy normal since the breast is filled with milk ducts and oil glands. The discharge would be worrisome if it is onesided and has the colors metioned in the previous post. With that said, please get a mammogram! It is a very easy tool that can be used to save lives. And you don't have to be 50 years old to have one. I had my first mammogram at the ripe old age of 15. If everything checks out then you now will have a great baseline should other problems occur later in life.
I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
I have had a swollen clitoris for about one week. At first it was because I masturbated and it was a little swollen, then it gradually got bigger and bigger about the size of a couple of grapes. Moslty on one side of my clitoris. It is now very uncomfortable and accompanied by a yeast infection. I always get small yeast infections by my birth control pills (Errin) but now this is still swelling even more even after my doctor prescribed Diflucan yesterday.
I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....
She is worried that the problem may be related to beast cancer although on research I've done it would be almost unheard of to have cancer in both breasts and as far as I can find out only one lymph gland would be affected (next to the breat affected). In other words even if she had cancer in one breast this would not make the lymph glands on BOTH sides painful.
Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.

So you are saying you tasted breast milk from this woman? And she was breast feeding a child? hmmm, how did you find out that? Setting that aside, you are not going to become infected, by a taste of breast milk.
I have been worried ever since since I know breast milk can transmit HIV. What do you think my risk is and do you recommend being tested. On a side note, I have had night sweats for 2-3 nights a couple of weeks ago and had swollen glands in the throat at the same time. My exposure was almost 4 months ago.
Heard about the clogge milk glands. Figure this is what it is. The whole top of my left breast is tender and swollen and hard. What to do?
the actual milk wont come in till a few days after delivery but you can start producing colostrum... the size increase is most likely from swollen milk glands and additional fat as your body prepares... not so much filling up at this time...trust me when you do fill up after baby youll know lol but as of right now you can see colostrum anytime through the pregnancy but dont express it or try to stimulate it in any way as that can make it worse...
They are swollen because naturally when your pregnant they are getting ready to be filled with milk. They will get even bigger once you are closer to your due date. With my first child I was a B cup and gradually on my due date I was wearing a D cup so it varies. Just think "hormones.
