Breast Expansion Lactation
Had f/u u/s for area in breast that came back as lactation changes -- 3 months later lesion is less obvious and a bit smaller... Is this a good?
Yes: Smaller is good! Have you recently been pregnant and stopped lactating? That would explain the changes. Make sure you follow up with your provider as the recommend ...Read more
Can be permanent: But I would suggest that you wait a minimum of 4-6 months following cessation of lactation prior to drawing any final conclusions'. Large differences during engorgement may be less noticeable when the swelling resolves and involution is complete. ...Read more

How to have my baby latch correctly on my breasts? I have enough milk but his latching is wrong and he feeds long time. No lactation consult. In area
Breastfeeding: A good latch is when your whole nipple is inside baby's mouth, passed the gum line. This way, the sucking takes place on the areola (dark skin around nipple) and you feel your nipple being pressed on the roof of baby's mouth. ...Read more
Will breast biopsy make your breast damaged and possibly have a problem in lactation in the future?
Not likely: Usually a breast biopsy is by stereotactic means. This is the insertion of a needle into the breast. The amount of damage done to the breast is relatively small and should not significantly impact on the overall function of the breast in producing milk. If the biopsy is via surgery the damage may overall be more but again should not impact on the overall function. ...Read more
3rd f/u u/s after breast biopsy-distortion had faded and smaller. U/s report said no suspicious findings. Biopsy was benign lactation changes. Good?
Fading lesion good: A resolving abnormality is what you want to see. When the level of "suspicious" characteristics declines sufficiently, no further ultrasound follow-up should be necessary unless a new lump or additional symptoms develop. ...Read more

4 months post breast biopsy and still have an area of thickened tissue in breast. U/s didn't see anything. Biopsy was benign tissue with lactation. Norm?
Had repeat breast core biopsy done, it came back as the same as the previous one-benign breast tissue with lactation changes. Are two biopsies accurate?
Is there anything that can be done to regain breast tissue after atrophy caused by cessation of lactation?

I have recently had an abortion and I had of course experienced the breast changes that would occur preparing for lactation. I have had a child that I breast fed and I am interested in re inducing lactation for personal reasons. I have used a manual pump
Of course you can induce lactation! There are several protocols available. The key is to get a hospital grade breast pump and pump every 3-4 hours.

Is mastitis purely developed from breast feeding, lactation etc or just the sucking of nipple that develops it and therefore infects?
Can I wait 6 months to remove my 3ml leaked silicon implant from my left breast cause I breast fed my 8 month baby and I can't stop lactation now?
42. Irregular periods. Sertraline 200mg p/d. Now sore breasts. One nipple erect for one mnth. Now small amnt lactation. Not pregnt. Cause lactation?
See your doc:
Some psychiatric medication, antidepressants and atypical neuroleptic medications, rarely can increase prolactin, which can lead to in irregular periods, lactation, tender breasts and firm, enlarged nipples.
But you need a blood test to confirm elevated prolactin level and, if so, subsequent diagnostic radiology testing to confirm it is not from another cause.
Call and see your doctor. ...Read more

Biopsy for breast "area"came back as benign lactational changes. Concordant. Report said '7x4mm hypoechoic vascular area'. What does the vascular mean?
Vascular area on ultrasound usually mean areas with increased blood flow, and sometimes mean the vessels themselves.
Since the patient is lactating, the breast is very metabolically active, and needs increased blood flow, so the blood vessels are larger.
Biopsy results concordant and benign, which is good news. ...Read more
Sagging Breasts: I am not a breast feeding/ breast specialist. I can only provide a partial answer to your question. Breast feeding / lactation is not considered a major factor in causing breasts to sag. I know - that isn't what my mother told me either. ...Read more
Had breast biopsy 2 months ago that was benign lactational changes. I feel like I can feel a tiny lump there now --can this be the clip they put in?
Breast lump: This could be either the clip, scarring, or a combination of both. Based upon your description and age, the chances of this being cancer seems low. It will be important to follow up with your physician in order to ensure that it is behaving appropriately for one of these benign conditions. ...Read more
