975514 tn?1324997938 Sorry, I misunderstood. I was responding to your statement, "I now have new symptoms. I have pain and itching from the inside." Even though you are in isolated area, I would be surprised if there were not county health departments, or at least a state health dept., that you could approach for help. Also, if you have not already done so, do contact the Susan G, Komen Fund.

Avatar f tn So around September I was in the shower n notice a hard lump on my right breast, it was sooo painful to touch. I was shock I never felt it before. Pass forward after my period ended the lump disappeared. I google and sounded like fibrocystic disease. I know I should've still gotten it checked. On November Thanksgiving day I started with an itch on the right side chest ( a lil upper from my breast) itch comes and goes, at that time I thought maybe it was my neck necklace cause allergy.
Avatar n tn Fibrocystic breast disease (FBD), now referred to as fibrocystic changes or fibrocystic breast condition, is the most common cause of "lumpy breasts" in women and affects more than 60% of women. The condition primarily affects women between the ages of 30 and 50 and tends to become less of a problem after menopause. The diagnosis of fibrocystic breasts is complicated by the fact that the condition can vary widely in its severity.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 23 years old. I recently visit my doctor due to pain in my left breast. Doctor found two lumps in my right and one in my left breast. He recommended to have a bilateral ultra sound done. In the paper he note down "breast mass". As indicated I did, however the radiologist didn't seem to quite know what she was doing. She asked me to indicate where my lumps were. Im not sure if she did the right job because I was not quite sure if indicated in the right place.

Avatar f tn The best course of action is to consult with a doctor (not necessarily an OB-Gyn, you may also consider going to either an oncologist or internist) and have a mammogram done. It will not do you any good to continue delaying the consult. Since the breast pain/tenderness involves both breasts, this may be hormone related. Do you take oral contraceptive pills? Does the pain and tenderness wax and wane with the onset of menstruation?
Avatar f tn If your breasts feel hard it is usually caused by fibrocystic breast condition and is characterized by overall lumpiness. The condition is very common and benign, but an actual breast lump is a localized swelling, bulge or bump in the breast that feels different from the breast tissue around it. If you have lumpy breasts, it's important to perform regular breast self-examinations and have regular physical examinations.
Avatar n tn I am 22 and have been dealing with dense breast and fibrocystic breast changes since I was 15!!! I have never done Mammos since I technically not old enough, but I have had several ultrasounds. I finally was sent to a general surgeon who specialized in breast cancer and he assured me it was cysts. Well needless to say, he passed away unexpectedly and I was living out of town for a while, so ALL my ultrasounds that I have had over the years are gone and I have to start all over again.

Caffeine can be a factor and it's not only in what you drink ... chocolate contains caffeine also. you might ck. on the internet for foods that contain caffeine.

Avatar n tn Hi, Fibrocystic breasts change, is very common and it's a benign condition and affects more than 60% of women between the ages of 30 and 50.As a rule, fibrocystic breast condition tends to be affecting both breasts,but it's not unheard of that the pain can start in one breast first and often the less affected breast "catches up" over the years.These changes are mainly caused by hormonal changes in the body particularly if you are on birth control pills or have gained weight.
Avatar f tn Many women have fibrocystic breast disease, which is a benign condition which causes your breasts to be lumpy and painful. There are some things that make the pain/lumpiness worse - like caffeine, also the time in your cycle can make the pain worse. To alleviate some of your anxiety, most breast cancer tumors are not painful. Have you had a recent mammogram? Its important to follow up and ensure that you get another ultrasound. Taking vitamin E has also been effective for some women.
Avatar f tn I was told yesterday that I have dense breast tissue, and through ultrasound was told that I have a cluster of cysts in this area by an xray technician. I has told to come back in 6 months and they would check if anything had changed. Can you help me understand what these are? Is it normal? Is Fibrocystic the same as what I was told I have?
Avatar n tn There are several common causes of benign breast lumps, including normal changes in breast tissue, breast infection or injury, and medicines that may cause lumps or breast pain. Fibrocystic changes, in particular, are an exaggerated response of breast tissue to changes of ovarian hormones. The size and tenderness of fibrocystic lumps usually increase before menstruation and decrease after the period ends.
Avatar f tn Upon going back to my gyno, she did another breast exam (again I was pre-menstrual) and she said that I definitely have fibrocystic breast changes, but she feels absolutely nothing of concern and thinks that a diagnostic mammogram is unnecessary, but that she will give the go-ahead for one if I need more peace of mind. She also said she doesn't want it to lead to unnecessary biopsy, as, since I was 16, I have suffered a lot of medical trauma.
Avatar f tn I am 33 years old and a hypochondriac on top of that. I have had left breast pain for 3 years now off and on. I have no insurance and I am such a worrier. My left breast when I push on it in a certain place it hurts. It's not something I can't live with, but I just want to know if it's normal. I have very lumpy breast anyways I feel all kinds of bumps and lumps in both of my breasts.
Avatar n tn Hello, The various causes of breast soreness are premenstrual syndrome, hormone therapy, pregnancy and breast feeding, fibrocystic disease, use of oral contraceptives and rarely a breast malignancy. Please consult a gynecologist and discuss these possibilities. In absence of pregnancy, it can be due to hormonal imbalance and should improve with time. Apply warm compresses and take some anti inflammatory pain killers. If it persists then get it evaluated from a gynecologist.
Avatar f tn I have a history of benign breast tumors along with fibrocystic tumors (since age 12). Last year my doctor, an oncologist, placed me on Tamoxifen to help with pain and growth. Prior another medication that made me sound like a man and grew hair in "unladylike" places was given. I take all the appropriate supplements (Vit E, A, Evening of Primrose, etc).
