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 pain is also associated with fibrocystic breast condition, so the diagnosis could be confused. Women with fibrocystic breasts, if they have symptoms, usually notice breast tenderness and pain, especially before their periods, and lumpiness and cyst formation.
Avatar n tn Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood, and is not usually associated with breast cancer. Sometimes it is associated with hormonal variations and is called cyclical breast pain. Noncyclical breast pain does not seem to be linked to hormonal variations and is often localized to one area of the breast tissue. Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast.
Avatar f tn I am 26 years of age with no family history of cancer or fibrocystic breast disease. Is referring a patient my age for this "routine ultrasound" common? I have not been able to find one single person in the same situation in one month of searching.
Avatar n tn contraction of the wall of scar tissue surrounding the breast implant may cause hardness of the breast, discomfort and even severe pain. According to Health Canada, capsular contracture occurs, usually within two years of surgery, in approximately 25% of women who undergo breast implant surgery. Other researchers suggest the percentage is as high as 70%.
Avatar n tn I only know, at this point, that I have several breast cysts but nonetheless, it is interesting to note the symptoms. I do believe that the body finds ways to tell us that something is wrong. Finding out exactly what that is can be frustrating! ah yes, the itch! never fails. And don't forget the 'gotta pee' syndrome, as soon as you know you can't, you have to! I hope that your tests are negative and that the ovarian cysts will go away on their own.
Avatar f tn Hi, Usually breast pain and swelling is not a sign of breast cancer but mostly associated with hormonal changes due to your menstrual cycle. Aside the swelling, have you noticed a breast lump, skin changes or nipple discharge? This problem could also be due to an infection (like mastitis) or abscess and fibrocystic breast condition. If the swelling and pain persist, just follow up with your Doctor for a clinical evaluation to make sure that there isn’t an underlying problem. Best wishes..
Avatar n tn 'Some simple measures, such as adequate support of the breasts and perhaps wearing a bra at night, may provide relief from many of the symptoms of fibrocystic breast condition. Antiinflammatory medications, including acetaminophen and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory medications (NSAIDs), often reduce the breast pain significantly. There are reports suggesting that a variety of vitamins may be of benefit in relieving the symptoms of fibrocystic breast condition.

Avatar n tn I was told that I have fibrocystic breast 2 months ago. Mammogram and ultrasound around that time both came back negative. My breast tenderness and aching start a week before my period and end sometime durning. My last period was a week or so ago and I am having breast pain again. A dull ache in my left and a shooting pain every once in a while in my right (my right gives me the most problems).
Avatar n tn You could take some pain relief medications , breast massage, warm compresses , etc. This could help with your symptoms to some extent. Let us know how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Post us about what your doctor advises. Regards.
Avatar n tn My periods are regular and on time. Two months ago right before my period I felt a sharp pain in my lower, right breast and now if I mess with it it hurts..if I leave it alone it seems ok other than a "full"feeling. I felt a little pain in the same area of my right breast at the same time 2 periods ago but not quite as bad. I was told I had fatty tissue in one of my breasts after one of my mammos but cannot remember which breast.
Avatar n tn breast pain can have many causes. Fibrocystic Breast condition certainly is one of those. This condition is very common among women of any age. 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. Since the films were all negative I'm not sure what the Surgeon can do but perhaps he may have some additional advice.
Avatar n tn Dear nana5548: Breast Cancer is not usually painful. However, if your pain is not going away, you should have it evaluated. Even though this is unlikely to be cancer, you should continue with your monthly breast examinations, and annual clinical exam and mammogram.
Avatar n tn Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast. Discuss your symptoms with your physician. Breast pain is evaluated based on the history of the pain you would give to the health care professional, as well as a physical examination. The need for further testing would be determined based on the above findings.
Avatar n tn Breast pain is sometimes associated with hormonal variations and is then called cyclical breast pain. Noncyclical breast pain does not seem to be linked to hormonal variations and is often localized to one area of the breast tissue. Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast. Without physical examination, ability ask questions etc. it is difficult to advise you as to what this pain could be. It is best to discuss with your doctor, who can evaluate.
203342 tn?1328740807 Hi April. I get breast pain, but it's around the side and underneath. I am already through menopause, however. Also, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, so that could be it. But I have had this pain throughout my life, on and off. What I do is use ice ( I know it sounds bad) and take some Advil. I also get a red rash around my nipples and the doctor told me to put cortizone cream on it or neosporin.
Avatar f tn I feel that an examination by a gynecologist will be the best as from your symptoms it looks like fibrocystic disease of the breast. Till that time, apply some warm compresses on the breasts. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Previous mammograms showed fibrocystic breast. Did ultrasounds, nothing found. Had implants 6 years ago and removed cysts.
Avatar f tn and you should contact his/her office and ask for a detailed explanation. Fibrocystic Breast Condition affects about 50% of all women .... the symptoms you describe sound very much like this condition. Cysts or masses appear in the breasts and are related to the hormone levels in your body ... the pain can come and go in relation to your menstrual cycle.
975514 tn?1325001538 ) Anyhow, I see a PA who has his hands tied because I can't afford treatment, or send me to see a new OBGYN for my annual. He says I have fibrocystic breasts. I now have new symptoms. I have pain and itching from the inside. He says I need a mammogram yearly, but there is no where to get one and he hasn't scheduled one. I have found a natural remedy for the ovarian cyst problem that has seemed to avoid a hysterectomy. Vitex, it really has helped!
