I have Few scattered Calcific Foci in bilateral breast.No other focal lesion seen in mamogram of both breasts.Should I get worried?

Concerned

Breast
And follow-up. To be calcified, these have existed for a while. Self and professional exams are important, along with excellent mammograms. Your GYN and / or breast specialist will follow with you.

What is true: Mammogram was not completely normal (ncreased density). You need additional testing to try to determine the cause and significance of the finding. If a new finding, first step would be spot mammograms and an ultrasound of the area, not waiting 6 months. MRI may also be helpful, but a biopsy may eventually be necessary to look at the cells under a microscope and make the diagnosis.

my memography for both the breast says that both the breasts show dense heterogenous fibroglandular stroma. there is no other parenchymal lesion. ?

Mammograms

Breast "architecture" is very varied. Some breasts are very dense with breast fibrinous stroma, others are more "fatty" However, there is a wide range of normal, and what you describe is a normal breast architecture. Usually, there is fatty replacement as you age. You have nothing to worry about

Dr. Sewa Legha answered:

Do small breasts have a better survival rate with breast cancer because of early detection (via self-exam)? Or are they handicapped by breast density?

Possibly yes

Breast_cancer
Unless you have a lump do not worry. breast size does not affect whether you develop breast cancer or not.

It does not cause breast cancer. Unfortunately the diagnoses may require more biopsies!

Dr. Jay Rosenfeld answered:

Big breasts, back pain?

Yes

Back_pain
I have seen many women with large breasts complain of back pain particularly in the middle part of the spine and often in the neck and upper thoracic spine. It is important to have a well fitting bra to support thebreasts.Also, I have found that women do better when the straps of the bra that rest on the shouldersare thicker and more padded so they do not dig in. PT can help. Breast reduction last

Why do my breasts hurt?

Hormones?

Open-uri20130408-24702-eu56d
the most common cause is hormones, related to flucutations around your period, or if you have changed or added hormone pills. If it's getting worse or not getting better, need to have it checked by doctor.

Swollen breasts nipples?

Bra fit

Too much friction from poorly fitting bras can cause this. If its one side or doesn't improve, you should have it checked out

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Are lumpy breasts common?

Normal

Open-uri20121112-31750-2i01f2
Most women's breasts are "lumpy-bumpy", especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Rest assured that you are normal.
