Most women experience breast changes at some time. The patients age, hormone levels, and medications may cause lumps, bumps and secretions (fluids that are not from the breast). If the patient suffers from swelling in the breast, pain, secretions or skin irritation, the patient should consult a specialist. Minor and serious breast problems have similar symptoms. Although many women fear from cancer, but most breast problems are not cancer.
Some common changes in the breast
- Fibrocystic changes in the breasts lumpy, thickening and swelling often before a women’s period.
- Cyst-fluid-filled lumps
- Fibroid tumors- solid, round, rubbery tumors that move easily when pressed as they occur in younger women
- Intraductal Papilloma’s- wart Tumors near the nipple are similar to the papilloma’s
- Blocked milk ducts
- Milk production when a woman is not breastfeeding
In addition, breast pain- a common complaint among women, where the women suffer from acute burning pain, or tightness in the breast tissue. The pain may be continuous or it may only occur occasionally. Breast pain can range from mild to severe. Where it occurs.
- Only a few days in the month (two or three days before your period). This normal mild to moderate pain affects both breasts.
- A week or more every month that begins before the menstruation and sometimes continues during the menstrual cycle. The pain may be moderate to severe and can affects both breasts.
- Throughout the month, it has nothing to do with the menstrual cycle.
- Some postmenopausal women sometimes suffer from breast pain, but the breast pain is more common in younger women who have not completed menopause.
Most of the time, breast pain indicates a noncancerous (benign) breast condition and rarely breast cancer. However, unexplained breast pain that does not go away after a period of two month, or that continues after menopause, needs to be evaluated by a specialist.
Most cases of breast pain are classified as either periodic or noncyclical. Each type of breast pain has distinctive characteristics.
|Breast pain as a result of menstruation||Breast pain is not a result of menstruation|
|It accompanies the menstrual||Not associated with menstruation|
|Described as heavy or painful||It is described as tight, burning, or painful|
|It often accompanied by a lump in the breast||Steady or intermittent|
|It usually affects both breasts, especially the upper and outer parts. And it can spread to the armpit||Usually affects one breasts, in a localized area, but it may spread more across the breast.|
|Intensifies during the two weeks preceding the menstrual cycle and then decreases after that||It is more likely to affect women after menopause|
|It is more likely to affect women in their twenties and thirties before menopause, as well as women in their forties who are transitioning into menopause|
The term extra-breast pain means the patient feels pain outside the breast as if it begins in the breast tissue. but their sources are elsewhere. A tightening of the chest muscle can cause pain in the chest wall or rib cage that spreads to your chest.
sometimes, the exact cause of breast pain cannot be determined. Contributing factors may include one or more of the following:
- Reproductive Hormones: Periodic breast pain appears to be closely related to hormones and the menstrual cycle. Cyclical breast pain often decreases or disappears with pregnancy or menopause.
- Breast Structure: Noncyclical breast pain often results from changes in the milk ducts or milk glands. This can lead to the development of breast cyst. Breast injuries, previous breast surgery, or other breast- related factors can cause breast pain. Breast pain may also start outside the breast- in the chest wall, muscles, joints, or heart, for example, and spread to the breast.
- Imbalance of fatty acids: imbalance of fatty acids within cells may affect the sensitivity of breast tissue to circulating hormones.
- Use of medications: some hormonal medications, including some infertility treatments and the oral contraceptive pill, may be associated with breast pain. Also, breast tenderness is a possible side effects of estrogen and progesterone therapies used after menopause. Breast pain may be associated with some antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
- Breast size: women with large breasts may experience noncyclic breast pain related to breast size. Neck, shoulder and back pain may be accompanied by breast pain due to the large breasts.
- Breast Surgery: breast pain associated with breast surgery and sometimes scars can persist after the incisions have healed.
