Breast Pain After Mammogram
I have alot of breast pain on mammogram a large lymph node was found could that cause such pain I can't even touch my chest plus have chest pain?
A mammogram is the "gold standard" screening test for breast cancer. It's well established that yearly 'grams will DX cancers well before they are palpable, leading to earlier diagnoses and saved lives. All experts agree to begin yearly mammograms by age 50; many (including myself) believe the pro's outweigh the con's to begin at 40. Regrettably, less than half of all women ...Read more
I have a left breast pain 4months, I went to a clinic and underwent mammogram and ultrasound, the result all are normal. And now still in pain. Why?
Mastodynia: Breast pain is usually secondary to hormonal effects on breast tissue or chest wall pain; favoring the former are cyclic changes in the pain; the latter is most common after menopause & is often activity-related. Considering your age, I suggest decreasing caffeine intake and taking vitamin e and oil of primrose.See 2 more doctor answers
Non cyclic left breast pain Dr found enlarged lymph gland and I'm pending mammogram CRP and Full blood count blood results what does this mean?
Pressure & pain left quadrants. Bloat with any food. Easily physically & mentally fatigued. Breast pain & bruising. Clear mammogram. Help?
Lots to deal with: Hang in there! You have a lot of symptoms, and they may not be related. First I see that you are taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine). That can cause "mental fatigue" so switch to a non sedating antihistamine like allegra. #2 gallbladder removed. This can cause problems with digestion so discuss that with an internist. Omeprazole can sometimes cause abdominal pain and low platelets which can cause bruising. See MD
Some alternatives: If your breasts are tender, you should ask your doctor to either give you some light pain medicine taken one hour before the procedure. Or use an alternative imaging test to check your breasts. Ultrasound of the breasts is one such alternative although it is an inferior test when used alone. MRI scan of the breast is another good alternative but your doctor has to make this request.
Mammogram for breast tenderness results were benign gynecomastia. Received letter today saying it's time for six month repeat test. Is this normal?
Have bilateral breast tenderness for six months. Getting ultrasound and mammogram. Is breast cancer the primary concern with these symptoms.
Gynecomastia breast tenderness has lasted over yr. Mammogram findings normal/benign with f/u scheduled. Is time abnormal. Finasteride caused.
See answer: Finasteride-induced gynecomastia, either uni- or bi- lateral, is one of the potential side effects of Finasteride (f) that likely does not get the attention it deserves. Usually improves or resolves after stopping f but not always. Almost always benign, but rare cases of breast cancer have been reported. Usual treatment: observation only; surgery if bothersome;? Anti-estrogen pill if painful.See 1 more doctor answer
Had ultrasound and mammogram 4 bilteral male breast tenderness had for 6 mths. Why do both? Are either gynecomastia or cancer possible?
Had a ultrasound 11/2012, for some breast pain results were cysts. It is now time for my mamogram, since I just had a ultrasound should I wait?
No: The mammogram provides a look at all of the breast tissue and, unlike ultrasound, can help fine suspicious calcifications and areas of asymmetry. Important to get your annual mammogram.
I went to my doctor for breast pain he said he felt something there I have to get a mammogram It's in both breast change in meds have anything to do?
Mammogram: The pain is bilateral, but your doctor felt something on one side? Bilateral pain is generally not a sign of breast cancer. If your doctor felt something, however, it needs to be evaluated. At your age, ultrasound is typically the first imaging study, but mammogram not inappropriate either.See 2 more doctor answers
My left breast hurts. Blood work, 2 ultrasound and diagnostic mammogram all normal. Specialist says fibrocystic but it hurts all month Idk what 2 do.?
Multiple causes: Fibrocystic changes are very common in women, and sometimes they can involve only one breast, or a part of one breast. Most doctors recommend a trial of avoiding caffeine first, which helps a large percentage of women. An infection can also cause this, and requires different treatment. Sometimes an operation is necessary.

I have breast tenderness to touch and had a mammography a year ago with scattered fibro glandular densities and enlarged lymph. % Chances of cancer?
Breast CA: Based on the information you gave us I can only say the chances are not zero that you have cancer.
It doesn't really: Mean anything, it is a vague and nonspecific statement, not part of the standard ACR BIRADS mammography lexicon. It is not describing any specific abnormality.See 1 more doctor answer
Are you: Referring to pain from the mammogram? Occasionally this is due to the amount of compression or aggressive positioning. If it was just temporary, it is probably nothing to worry about, and may not recur with the next mammogram. If the pain is a symptom not related to the mammogram, see your doctor for an evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Not required: It is preferential to do a clinical breast exam yearly in women over age 40, however, a mammogram can "see" and detect growths that are sometimes not clincially palpable. The best advice here is to do breast self exam monthly after the menstrual period starts to eliminate the breast swelling that occurs before the period.See 3 more doctor answers
