What causes soreness in breast with increase in size? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi....I am 41 year old female. My left breast is extremely sore and has suddenly grown larger than the right. It has been about 6 weeks since I noticed these changes. My left armpit is also very tender. I had a mammo in Oct. just a annual routine and it came back negative but stage 3 density. I am just sick worrying ... any advice.
Hello...thanks for your time
I suspect you might be suffering from fibroadenitis or a breast abscess
It is my pleasure to be of service
and the pain and sudden increase in the size of the breast I suspect it to be an inflammation of the fibrous and breast tissue
This happens quite commonly in women of your age
So what should I do?
You should consult a breast surgeon or agynecologist
and get yourself examined
ok thanks I will...have a good day.
I don't think it is an abscess, in which case you would also be running a fever
Thanks for using the service
have a good day
