Common Questions and Answers about Breast pain endometriosis

breast

Avatar n tn I have endometriosis, and I am allergic to latex. I have a long history of breast cancer in my family. I cannot have children, I have adverse reactions to hormone therapy and birth controll. I have an IUD right now but am in severe pain. Non latex condoms do not offer enough protection. I am 28 and thinking about having a hysterectomy, but am unsure if that will increase my risk for breast cancer, and other hormone issues, any feedback or help would be great!
Avatar m tn I'm 45 yrs old and just had a hysterectomy in July for endomedtriosis. My doc gave me progesterone only for 4 months to kill off any residual traces of endometriosis before switching me to estrogen. From what he told me, progesterone kills it off while estrogen fertilizes it. I never knew that. I asked about stopping the estrogen because I'm not liking it at all. Loved the progesterone. He said it would be ok unless my menopause symptoms became too bad and I could go back on it.
Avatar f tn I had to stop taking it even though it helped my endometriosis and my breast keep growing for another 2 months. Its really expensive and the pharmacy has to order it and you take it to your Dr for them to mix it and give it to you. Not sure if this helps but just FYI.
Avatar f tn I would also like to mention that when I lay on my stomach, the pressure/pain on my left breast is pretty strong, and sometimes my breast aches without even being touched.
Avatar f tn I just had a lap a week ago I just started walking and moving ok I had problems coming out of surgery and voiding afterwards I had a be Catheterized I can void on my own now but I noticed that every now and again I will have a lot of blood in my underwear I think it's my period than a few hours later its gone my breast are extremely sore is this normal it's also still a little uncomfortable to void
Avatar n tn If you had a cyst that went away on its own, the pain could linger for awhile until it heals. Ovary and breast pain can coincide with each other...some kind of hormone connection there as well. If the doctors say you are normal you probably are normal. The family history is making you scared but you are smart to keep such a close eye on your health.
14955640 tn?1437548973 s getting worse with each period. The doctor diagnosed endometriosis some time ago. The last month the pain is really unbearable; it spread to the groin left side, upper back too - I feel twinges and sharp pains all over sometimes. But the pain in pelvis is constant and it's worse, I have to take Ibuprofen all the time as I can't function normally. I feel tired all the time, very very tired...
305005 tn?1358728290 the pain is all the time and breast are sore all the time not just around that time) the pain would come and go at wierd times but has been constant for the past 2 months. i also posted a question about a wierd period a few weeks ago . http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/755811?
Avatar f tn I also had very discomforting pelvic floor pain/groin pain and constipation while on my period. The pain feels like stabbing, and then also a dull aching at other times. Also, is it normal for your uterus to feel tender if you push on it with Endo? Can it become inflamed or cause pain at ANY time during your cycle? Are all of my symptoms common with Endometriosis, do you think I have it, and should I seriously consider seeing a specialist?
3145189 tn?1343157421 I have four children also. I was told that it's just after-pains. They are excruciating though!! I also have endometriosis so I think that contributes. The only medication that has ever helped me with severe cramping is naproxen. I'm not sure if you can take that if you're breast feeding. Breast feeding can also make the pain worse because your uterus contracts as you're nursing. The first week that I nursed, I kept a heating pad on my stomach.
Avatar f tn I'm 26 and I had a cyst on my left ovari when I was 19. My mother had a full hystorectomy when she was my agedue to cyst and endometriosis. For over a couple months I have been having sharp/crampy pain in the lower left side of my abdomen. The pain has been constant ranging from either dull to extremely intense and the change in pain happens out of no where. The same side but in my lower back hurts as well but that pain seems to only be present when the pain in my abdomen is intense.
Avatar f tn you could take medications such as Ibuprofen or Aleve to help with the pain. If you continue to have bad pain, you may wish to consider a laparoscopy to determine whether or not you might have endometriosis. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Birth control pills are the first-choice treatment for controlling endometriosis growth and pain. This is because birth control hormones are the hormone therapy that is least likely to cause bad side effects. For this reason, they can be used for years, while other hormone therapies can only be used for several months to two years. Birth control pills can also be used to stop or further slow endometriosis growths after endometriosis surgery.
Avatar f tn I am 2 wks late for my period. For the pas 4 wks my breast have been really sore, the other morning I woke up and noticed at the bottom of my breast there were red purple stretch marks. I am 22 and my breast are a size D. They now are HUGE. I took a test and it came back negative. I've also had abd cramps too. Do u think I could be pregnant.
Avatar n tn I have symptoms of a period; i.e. cramping, irritability, back pain, but no blood loss. The pain does subside so it is not all of the time. I am concerned as I have a family history of ovarian and breast cancer. I have an appointment with my gynocologist but she is out of town and I can't see her for a couple of weeks. Are there certain questions that I should be asking? I have had a CA-125 test a couple of years back and it was slightly elevated (36). Internal ultrasound was fine.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 15 yrs old and for the past 3 months I've been getting random attacks of pain in my chest and lower back, the pain is so severe I can't stand all walk, It's like I'm being stabbed over and over again :( I get it near my heart and just under my rib cage also it migrates from lower back to lower abdominal the attacks can go from around 15 mins to an hour and by the end of it I nearly pass out.
Avatar f tn - Pelvic Pain - Chronic ovarian pain (right more than left); pain seems to be affecting upper abdominal areas causing what seems to be gallbladder pain, heartburn and nausea. I have had a little bit of difficulty with shortness of breath, chest tightness, have undergone allergen testing and been diganosed with asthma. Allergy tests showed multiple reactions to environmental things like dust, mold and ragweed - they started immunotherapy.
440728 tn?1234645302 Skipping months and no cramps, severe mood swings and severe breast pain. My GYN figured out this week that the only time I do not have breast pain is during the week I am supposed to have my period. BTW - that obviously is supposed to be this week since I have no breast pain since Wednesday. I have a mammo scheduled next week for that but I don't expect them to find anything. I also have an IUD that I am contemplating removing.
Avatar f tn The other thing I suggested, endometriosis, can cause that rectal pain. I used to get some pretty bad rectal pain with endometriosis, so its something to talk to your doctor about. Good luck with the second doc.
Avatar f tn I have a history of colon polyps and endometriosis. 10 mos ago I had a laporoscopy. they found endo and cysts wrapping around my fallopian tubes. They removed the tubes and got rid of as much endo as possible. They found no cancer at that time. for the last 3 or 4 mos I have had discomfort. So I went to my new doctor(had to change because of insurance change) just before my last period because I was doubled over in pain. Had a vaginal ultrasound, they found 4cm simple cyst on right ovary and 2.
1425128 tn?1282756875 i have had stomach(abdomen) pain all my life, the past 7 months i have had a pain on my left side that doesn't go away, my bowels are not normal and painful, and my menstrual period has been irregular for the same amount of time.
Avatar n tn I am a 60 year old breast cancer survivor who had a hystorectomy at age 30 because of extensive endometriosis. My ovaries were preserved, and I went through a normal menopause, albeit a little early, at about age 38 or 40. I am sexually active, and have had a comfortable, healthy sex life. Suddenly, over the last few weeks, intercourse has become very painful and I bleed, both after intercourse and at times in between. It is just spotting, but it is getting a little heavier.
1872071 tn?1320287532 30 year old female, smoker but in the process of quitting (wish me luck) I am starting to have pain in my pelvic region when I have to go to the bathroom. Today it felt like someone stabbed me near my ovaries and bladder. I have recently had a ultrasound and my ovaries seem normal to the drs. I have a serious urgency to go and I go frequently. I thought it had to do with my period and the awful symptoms that I get with that, but I am just about finished with my period. So now I am not so sure.
Avatar n tn She has been to her OB-GYN, who poked around and said he is not worried about cysts, and gave her a pain Rx, which only made her feel sick, and did not help the pain. Over-the-counter pain relievers do not help. **** Quai helped at one point, but not this past month. The dr. suggested massage, which she then had done by a massage therajpist. It did not help. My maternal grandmother had uterine cancer in her 80's. My maternal aunt (now 90) is a breast cnacer survivor. Any advice?
Avatar m tn and in the meantime you might want to post your question in one of the pregnancy forums rather then the endometriosis forum...but I would definitely be seeking help if I were having pain while pregnant...I would not want to risk miscarriage...since you are pregnant and have not been diagnosed with endometriosis which can cause birth contraction pains...I would worry that it might be contractions...not something to mess with...Call your Doctor ASAP!
Avatar n tn I am 34 yr female, I had a hysterectomy at 29 due to severe endometriosis, I also had a benign(sp) lump removed from my right underarm/breast. I am having a great deal of pain in my right underarm/breast area, I alsohave swollen glands behind my ear (rt side) I get really dizzy and nauseated sometimes. I am in the Navy and have reported it to the doctors, they said it is nothing to worry about but never did any exam on me. I am scared, what could this be and what do you think I should do.
Avatar f tn However, on your next yearly gynecologist appointment, you can ask if there is a chance that you may have endometriosis. Endometriosis occurs when the uterine lining can grow outside of the uterus and can result in painful and irregular periods. Not every woman with painful or irregular periods has endometriosis, but for your peace of mind for future babies, it doesn't hurt to ask.
Avatar f tn Hi Lauren I had my first scope for endometriosis and adhesions when I was 17. Ten yrs later I had a second surgery for the endometriosis and ovarian cyst. I only had the pain for a couple of months before both surgeries really bad where I needed narcotics. My dr kept me on bcp and then I switched to depo provera only because it was easier for me. Maybe you have the endometriosis still on other organs that they couldn't get to that is causing you pain?
