23yr old female, not married before, feel tenderness over areolas of both breasts, my dr. Told me that may be fibroadenosis. How to confirm, treat&prognosi?
Surgery: First, mammogram and possibly MRI to determine whether there is more cancer in the breast. If not, then lumpectomy, which would remove the nipple & areola, followed by radiation, is one option. Mastectomy is another option, and reconstruction can be done at the same time. See a breast surgeon or surgical oncologist for a discussion of treatment options. ...Read more

Before any treatment can be done, you must first have a complete physical exam and may need bloodwork to rule out hormonal issues. There are a number of medications that can also cause gynecomastia.

Not for this alone: Homeopathic treatment won't help breast growth unless you're in your early developmental years, growing them. It's not suitable treatment for a 31-yo woman seeking breast enhancement. That said, it can help your overall health -- and if part of your problem is not eating well, etc, it may help your entire body fill out into its healthiest, most natural form. No guarantee about breast size though. ...Read more
2different questions: A breast mass does not require treatment, it requires a diagnosis. Please see your gyne or primary care doctor for referral to a breast surgeon. If appropriate, a nonsurgical biopsy can be done there. Breast pain, likewise, requires a comprehensive evaluation for the cause. Once this is determined, we can then focus on how to treat the pain, usually without the need for surgery. ...Read more
Biopsy: The only sure way to inentify a breast fibroadenoma is to take a sample of it and to have a pathology doctor look at it under the microscope. This can be done either by taking a needle core biopsy, which can be done in the office, or by doing an excisional biopsy, which removes the entire mass and is done usually in the operating room. Once it is removed, it should not cause ongoing problems. ...Read more

Overall, the patient satisfaction rate is extremely high for breast augmentation, and complications are uncommon and often treatable. ...Read more
Not necessarily: A fibroadenoma is a benign breast lump that does not turn into cancer or necessitate removal. Sometimes they shrink over time or after a biopsy. The most important issue is being sure that any lump in the breast is 100% evaluated and explained. If the fibroadenoma were to get larger, one worries that there might be a cancer behind it or a new lump is ignored thinking it is only a fibroadenoma. ...Read more

I am 44 years old married woman. I have three children. I feel pain in my breast about ten days before minstruation. What is the reason and treatment?
Hormonal changes: Breast tissue is sensitive to hormonal changes. There is a huge hormonal surge about 14days before your period. This frequently triggers breast and/or nipple soreness. Treatment is usually breast support, like a good bra, even wearing a jogging or sleep bra at night. Ibuprofen is also very helpful. Make sure you have had a screening mammogram and if you feel any lumps, see your doctor. ...Read more
I had several breast fibroadenomas removed over the last few years. Now I have fibroadenoma and cysts. Is it fibrocystic disease? Will I have fibroade
Probably: Sounds like you have benign changes in your breast that are consistent with fibrocystic changes. Most pathologists don't use the term disease anymore since fibrocystic changes are benign and very common especially in young people. I see this nearly everyday in my practice. Fibroadenomas are also benign and can been with or without surrounding fibrocystic changes. ...Read more
