there are women with dense breasts and palpable cysts...there are also women with fatty breasts and some have both,the fat is very radiolucent, the fibrocyctic tissue less so, so there are palpation and mammographic differences.

What causes fibrocystic breast disease?

Can be hereditary

Fibrocystic_breast_disease
Painful breast swelling and lumpiness in the breasts, worse around the menstrual cycle, is a common feeling from fibrocystic breasts. Dense mammogram findings and cysts can be seen on breast ultrasound. Hereditary factors may cause some women to have more fibrocystic problems than others. Some sites say that this condition affects more than half of women. It resolves with menopause.

Information on inflamatory breast disease?

Mimics infection

Concern_for_diet_while_breastfeeding
Inflammatory BC can look like a bad infection - the breast is swollen and red and often tender. In general, if you have a significant breast infection - you should be seen and treated by a doc anyhow. If the condition is atypical or you do not respond promptly to antibiotics you will need to see a breast specialist. IBC is usually a treated with chemo followed by surgery and radiotherapy.

How to tell if I have breast disease/cancer?

Dominant mass

Breast
A dominant lump n a breast should be seen by your personal physician without delay. You can ask your physician about whether mammography is right for you. If you are from a breast cancer family, you are entitled to get BRCA1 / BRCA2 genetic screening and to act on the results as seems best to you. Best wishes and stay vigilant.

how I can know I have breast disease?

Self exam/Mammogram

Open-uri20120204-16184-1o2cqet
Ladies must examine her breast at least every month in different positions, in front of A mirror.Also once a year should be examined by a physician. At age 40 should start to have yearly mammograms. If the lady feels some lumpy area at any age must seek professional evaluation. Younger girls with lumps deserve at least and ultrasound. Review videos about self exam on the web.
