Benign breast pain post menopause

Common Questions and Answers about Benign breast pain post menopause


Avatar n tn Is there a possibilty of having a benign pelvic mass after menopause? COuld they have possibly seen the fibroid which measured 2 cm in the CT Scan and called that a pelvic mass? She has been to the Dr. in previous years and they always order a TVU and CA-125. Is there a reason why they do this. She was a first time patient, is this routine? Is that a typical screening method for some Drs?

I am afraid it's impossible to tell over the internet, what exactly is causing your pain.It's a good thing though that your doctor is sending you for more testing especially because initially you think you felt a lump in your breast which should be always investigate to rule out any serious condition.
Avatar n tn Hi Soulshine! I very much agree with ontheedge050. Any post-menopausal bleeding should always be brought to a doctor's attention. There's a good chance that it will turn out to be harmless, but for your own peace of mind, see a doctor.
Avatar f tn 5 cm is a size when many doctors start to recommend surgery. After menopause, even more so. With a family history of breast cancer (which could have some link to ovarian cancer) then waiting is even less advisable. Most cysts are benign, but the more risk factors a person has , the more it makes sense to opt for surgery...and if you really want to remove the fear of ovarian cancer from your life, then have both ovaries removed , too.
Avatar m tn I am 63 years old. Before reaching menopause every time I ovulated, I had terrible pain on left ovary. I am experiencing that pain again which I find strange since I am not ovulating. I have recently moved and so I don't have a doctor but I am thinking I need to see a gynecologist !My health is really good even though I am hypertensive and diabetic with a history of Breast CA.
Avatar n tn I am 41 years old and had a lump (1,5 cm) in my right breast six months ago. I did the US, Mammography and biopsy and it was diagnosed as a fibroadenoma tumour. Sometimes after the biopsy I am experiencing a little pain and sore down my armpit and breast area which I didn't feel it before biopsy. Is it because of the biopsy or the tumour ? Please advise whether I should remove the lump.
Avatar n tn i had done a ultrasonogram test in my breast due to pain and the feeling of a lump. the results say that the fibroglandular areas appear dense with presence of few clear cysts seen scattered throughout these ares.the size of the cystic areas are about 3 MM in diameter and smaller. the appearance of fibroglandular areas with the cystic regions of rt. breat are suggestive of changes due to fibrocystic disease.does that mean i have breast cancer?my age is 45 years.
675329 tn?1297288378 4 cm on thyroid chronic fibromyalgia pain anxiety depression. i just had to go back for a second spot compression on my left breast. they found an increase in nodular density. i followed up immediately with a spot compression of left breast and ultrasound which was deemed benign. i will need a follow-up in 6 months for this as well. any help with sure be appreciated. thank you Annie and all.
Avatar f tn My breasts are dense and I sometimes I do suffer pain and heavy especially my left breast give me more problem. Kindly give me some advice. Thanks a Million.
Avatar f tn I also have post stereotactic biopsy aches and pains almost 4 months later. I actually had two stereo biopsies because the first Dr. didn't get the area that was needed...developed a hematoma which they failed to mention could happen and what to do then I traveled out of state to a Dr that did a wonderful job...still developed a hematoma but not as bad this time around but I do have aches and pains off and on in that breast.
Avatar f tn I had stage 2 lump removed by lumpectomy in 2002 on my left breast outer quadrant with lymph node removal (6 nodes). This was followed with radiation. Last May I had a stereotopic (?) biopsy done on my right breast because of calcifications. These were benign & all were removed. I went for follow up mammogram this last Friday & was told I need to have the same biopsy done on my left breast at old tumor site because of new calcifications.
Avatar m tn I go every year for a mammagram However I did hear that your chances of breast cancer a higher post menopause. Do you have any idea of the percentage of these irregular hydroechoic solid's being cancer. My mammagram reads scattered fibroglandular densities found.
Avatar f tn Could this nipple pain be related to menopause? I still have both ovaries but hysterectomy many years ago, I was told it as likely that I would go through menopause earlier than normal. This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Breast-Cancer/Sore-breasts-after-a-hysterectomy-/show/387073">Sore breasts after a hysterectomy </a>.
Avatar n tn Hi, This is a benign non-cancerous breast lesion which presents as lumpiness and associated pain especially during hormonal changes as during the menstrual cycle. These are managed with regular breast self examinations and periodic clinical breast examinations by your physician and 6 monthly or yearly mammograms and ultrasound. They are removed surgically only if they are very large and causing pain and other pressure symptoms. They are known to spontaneously regress with menopause.
958842 tn?1266512599 Stress can also affect breast pain. You are more likely to have breast pain before menopause than after menopause.Also try to cut down on your caffeine intake. Breast pain is not a common symptom of breast cancer.Your last mammogram was done 2 years ago and having one done now would be advisable to check for any abnormality.Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Benign cysts can form on menopausal women....and it is my understanding that someone is not in "menopause" until they have gone 12 months without having a period. Most cysts, well over 90 percent are benign. Not sure what blood test the doctor is taking. Best of luck and let us know how it goes!!!!
Avatar n tn Fat Necrosis is a lump that sometimes forms due to damage to the fatty tissue of the breast. It is a benign condition and does not increase a woman's risk for breast cancer.
Avatar m tn Wear a good, supportive bra to reduce breast movement. Many women with breast pain find it comfortable to also wear a bra while they sleep. Take care dear, and hoping that you'll soon feel much better!
Avatar f tn Since the ovaries do continue producing hormones, that explains why cysts can develop after menopause especially in the earlier post-meno years. It also explains a lot of the post-menopausal bleeding episodes that end up being nothing serious...merely some fluctuating hormones. But of course, post-meno bleeding still has to be investigated to make sure it isn't anything serious. Most ovarian cysts resolve on their own, no intervention needed.
Avatar f tn Are you having any pain or discomfort? If not I would wait it could go away. However on the flip side mine grew to over 10cm and I was in extreme pain for the last 3 months so I wish I didn't have to wait so long - I guess that wasn't much help.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with abdominal pain and nausea for about two months. Gastro doc ordered CT scan which showed no issues in GI tract. However he failed to tell me the scan revealed a solid soft tissue mass 3,2 cm on my right ovary. During a trip to the emergency room this past week, the ER doc reviewed the CT results and asked if I had seen a gynecologist yet about the mass on my ovary. You can imagine my shock.
Avatar n tn (im 53 years old and now going through menopause my menstration is erratic) for now i feel my breast is tender ( on my right breast, and according to my doctor that is due to fibrosis) though i dont have a back pain, there is a strange feeling (only when i bend down) like i have a 1inch ball underneath my shoulder blade on the right mid-back. in my lung xray, no such lump is shown nor can it be felt by touching.
7729616 tn?1393795492 I have read that breast cysts are common in women at 35 and older as they are approaching menopause. I am only 29 and I have had several recurrences of breast lumps, although not quite as bad as this one. I have had recurrences of them since I was 20 years old. * Hot flashes - I have had one hot flash and that was a few months ago. I came over hot, red and sweaty and almost lost consciousness.
