It may. It may.
I'm 29. I have fibrocystic breasts. Is it alarming when a small complicated breast cyst (no solid mass component) is more "tall than wide"? Thank you
No. But if any changes or if any dishcharge or family history of breast cancer should be seeing a breast surgeon to keep up with screenings and if smoke or take birth control stop, this increases risk, try natural family planning nfp. Com.
? for radiologist or breast surgeon. I have fibrocystic breasts. Can a complicated breast cyst that is taller than wide, still be benign?
Yes, Complicated cysts are almost always benign. "Taller than wide" is relevant for solid or complex masses, not cysts.
My dr says I have fibrocystic breasts he said its common sometimes. Am I more prone to ca? & how will I know if its just cystic tissue or ca during exam
No and FCD confuses. Fibrocystic disease (fcd) is not a risk factor for breast cancer. However it makes breast self-examination probematic: is it fcd or a suspicious lump? Although breast self-exam is not associated with decreased mortality from breast cancer, I believe that it is safe and that you need to know what your normal breast tissue feels like. It can lead to increased number of mammograms.
I have slight indentation on both of my breasts - I am 19 so doubt this is cancer - what could this be? Breast cysts, Fibrocystic Breasts or what?
Requires exam. And probable breast ultrasound. Cannot be diagnosed with an exam.
I'm 29. Have fibrocystic breasts. 6 mths ago had benign papilloma removed. Same breast now developed complicated breast cyst (no solid mass). Causes?
Yes and no. Not related to papilloma but may be related to combination of fibrocystic disease and prior breast surgery.
26. fibrocystic breasts diagnosed, ultrasound fine, test done last yr. One breast always been larger and more cysts. Is this normal? Doc says no worry
Normal diffrences. It is normal for there to be differences between the breasts in terms of size of the breast and number of cysts. Usually the density of the breast is the same on both sides. Keep performing monthly breast self exams and getting breast imaging as recommended by your doctor.
4 months of stabbing pain through left breast starting at nipple straight through to back. No lumps but have history of fibrocystic breasts.
Ribs. This is most likely an intercostal neuralgia, or irritation of the nerve associated with each rib. The pain is sharp, and stabbing, often radiating from breast area to the back. Gastroesphageal reflux, particularly with hiatal hernia may cause similar symptoms. Diagnostic workup may include thoracic ct / MRI to exclude aneurysm.
