Breast pain thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Breast pain thyroid


Avatar f tn I've never heard of thyroid issues causing breast pain; I'd be more inclined to say that it has something to do with only having one ovary. I know, before I had my hysterectomy, I used to get horrible breast pain. It started out being around the time of my period, then it got to the point where I had it all the time. I did finally discover that caffeine caused it and when I cut back to decaff coffee it went completely away.
Avatar f tn HI, There can be a correlation between thyroid problems and breast pain. Some experts believe that like most cases of hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia is also autoimmune in nature. Fibromyalgia can be mistaken for breast pain. Other causes of breast pain can be infection or mastitis, fibrocystic disease of the breast and breast lumps. Consult your Doctor. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations.
Avatar f tn I have a lump in my L- Breast. I also have an enlarged Thyroid, could the two have any thing to do with each other?
Avatar f tn This is my first post and I am writing with alot of concern. My issue started 2 weeks ago when I had severe pain in left arm and breast, mostly in the chest bone. It was extremely painful and I had to visit ER. Doctor said I am having muscular pain and it should get better with rest and medication. It got better for sometime but started again. Now the situation is that one day I have pain in my arm, neck, upper back, shoulder and breast on the right side and next day on the left side.
Avatar f tn I am 31 years old and am experiencing pain in my right breast that goes to my armpit and down my arm. The doctors have done an exam and 2 different doctors felt a small lump but mammogram & ultrasound revealed nothing. I haven't had my cycle for 7 months and I am not sexually active. I need some direction and ideas here. The last doctor thinks it has to do with my hormones but I am wondering if the hormones have something to do with the lump and pain.
Avatar n tn Both thyroid and breast cancers are hormone driven cancers. Get the mammogram. Please keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I did 150 for almost 2 weeks then went to 125. No more headaches, almost no muscle pain and I am producing more breast milk. I felt "low production" because when I had the baby, in the hospital I pumped 2 ounces at a time. That decreased over the next 2 to 3 weeks to 1 ounce then to almost nothing, and the baby was never satisfied. Now, at 9 weeks postpartum, he is mush more satisfied and I feel better than ever.
Avatar n tn Please post your thyroid related test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report. Also, if tested for Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin, please post those, along with ranges.
487969 tn?1249316891 My question is really, do you know if the problems (breast and thyroid) can be related or aggrivated by the other? I am really freaked out. Bilateral Diagnostic Mammogram and Right Breast US Dated 7/16/08: Clinical Histroy of Episodic Bilateral Breast Tenderness with the Patient's Menstrual Cycle. The patient report breast paind has decreased since her initial physician visit. Findings: Bilaterial mammogram deminstrates extremely dense breast tissue.
Avatar f tn I also have a 'tender' spot on the side of my breast, that if touched makes my breast and under my breast ache. I also experience 'pain' that is similar to breastfeeding - if that makes any sort of sense! (It's not really that easy trying to explain this in writing! lol) Other times it feels almost like an internal itch right behind my breast. I thought that this might have been related to a possible thyroid problem.
Avatar f tn I am a 3 time cancer survivor (kidney, breast, thyroid)...age 45. In 2001 I had a lumpectomy, followed by chemo and radiation. About six weeks ago I came down with the flu accompanied by a nasty cough. Have recovered but still have lingering cough. I am now experiencing pain in the subject breast whenever I cough, take a deep breath, or stretch a certain way. The area is also somewhat tender when palpatated. Is this likely just an aggravation of old scar tissue? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Second possibility is of galactorrhea which is a feature of hormonal imbalance, such as from taking birth control pills,an underactive thyroid gland tumor (prolactinoma) or other disorder of the pituitary gland and chronic breast stimulation, such as from frequent breast self-exams or sexual activity. Third possibility is of intraductal papilloma.It is a small, usually noncancerous (benign) growth that projects into a milk duct near your nipple.
Avatar n tn I am still nursing my child, and this isn't mastitis. For six months I've had stabbing pains in my left breast. I also feel some pain radiating down my arm now and then. I also feel this heaviness, like sometimes it is painful to breathe. I even went to the ER (first time ever) in April, thinking I was having a heart attack. They said it was anxiety with the pending surgery. I've read about IBC, but I have absolutely no visual changes in my breast, just this pain!
Avatar f tn I dring iodine 20 yrs ago to destroy thyroid. Had breast cancer in 2007 chemo and radiation. Having pain on right side of body, arm, hips, side, back and leg. Thyroid tests done 3 mos ago showed hypo, dr. upped medication from .75 to .100. Had blood test in 6 wks later which was normal. Stayed on .100 for six weeks with another blood test and was hypo again. Now on .125 levoxyl. Do you think thyroid could be causing the pains in the right side of my body.
Avatar n tn of the radiation beam going outside of where it was supposed to be, they may have caused you thyroid issues. I did end up with a thyroid problem shortly after radiation and unfortunately, it's a permanent problem now. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn I occasionally have a suttle heart pain, upon inhaling, directly under my left breast. I am also always tired. I have hypothyroidism (diagnosed 4 mos. ago) and am on synthroid. I haven't noticed a pattern for the pains, such as after excercise or at rest. They just seem to occur and are somewhat uncomfortable. I just watched a program last night about small vessel heart disease and it made me think that maybe this occasional problem I have should be taken more seriously?
Avatar f tn Breast lumps or areas of thickening Breast pain or tenderness Fluctuating size of breast lumps Green or dark brown nonbloody nipple discharge Changes in both breasts Monthly increase in breast pain or lumpiness from midcycle (ovulation) to just before your period Fibrocystic breast changes occur most often in women in their 20s to 50s. Rarely do postmenopausal women experience fibrocystic breast changes, unless they're on hormone therapy" http://www.mayoclinic.
1069633 tn?1255246589 I now am suffering chest pain just below my left breast behind my ribs, heart pain I assumed. I currently have not been taking any Thyroxine so I can become hypothyroid for my followup Whole Body Scan. My doctor ordered an ECG as she believed it couldn't be related to hyperthyroidism (which causes tachycardia) because I haven't been on any thyroxine.
Avatar n tn Hi there. If cancer is indeed ruled out, then the most common cause for lymph node enlargement in this area is the presence of infection. Some areas of the breast tissues can be infected, as well as some sebaceous glands in the armpit area. Aside from pain medications, this would respond well with a course of antibiotics. You may also want to discuss with your doctors regarding performing a biopsy procedure if these persists.
Avatar f tn I am 55, female and have had an under-active thyroid since my 1st child was born 38 years ago. (My mother has a goiter but never on thyroid pills) Since then I have been on thyroid hormone (mostly synthetic). I was doing fairly well, but in 2000 my doctor said he thought I would feel a lot better on natural hormone instead of Synthroid, so we changed my pills. I started to get chest pains. They would come & go in waves.
Avatar f tn but was retested after 3 month and came back normal only my thyroid was at border line. But my left breast is still leaking This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Breast-Cancer/Leaking-fluid-from-my-left-nipple-and-chest-pain/show/261978">Leaking fluid from my left nipple and chest pain</a>.
Avatar n tn i found multiple lumps on my left breast, i uses tha medicine evening primrose oil 500 mg also voltral sr 100. but last night i found a blue thick spot back of my left shoulder, and i ve svear burning pain, what is this? is it dangerous?
Avatar f tn It is pressing against my throax and has grown down into my breast bone. I am in constant back pain. My question should the surgeon, endocr and the pcp told me they left a little bit and did not remove all of it? Had they done this I could have had this checked at least once a year and when it started to grow it could have been addressed. I now have this huge mass and am seeing my a second ENT. Since the mass is so large and is pushing its way thorugh will this be a risky surgery to remove it?
Avatar f tn I have had pain in my breast for quite a few months comes and goes feels like a chinese burn there is no lump saw 2 doctors they said all is ok but the soreness is back I use to use a walking stick and that side , my breast built up its just a bit bigger then the right it feels lumpy when I lay on that side side a lot there is no redness no rush just a burning feelling I am always under lot of stress due to family matters thank you I have a lap top and some
Avatar f tn This does not sound like thyroid lymphoma (which is quite rare) but you should have an ultrasound to evaluate the swelling and determine if there is a nodule. Also thyroid labs based on symptoms to see if hypothyroid. Lymphoma usually presents with rapidly enlarging thyroid in the setting of autoimmune thyroid disease -- which is possible here, but not likely.
