what is fibrocystic breast disease and what's the treatment for it?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Mark Hoepfner

Common: Common benign condition of painful breast swelling and breast nodularity in young women, often worse at menstrual cycle. It can run in families. It can be made worse with some hormone medications. I do not know of a specific "treatment" of this other than anti-inflammatory medication for discomfort. Resolves after menopause.
