Hello,

Thanks for your query.

An irregular sex life or lack of sex thereof doesn't have any direct relation to the formation of ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts are formed due to disordered ovulation and due to the effect of hormones.

Fibrocystic breast disease is also not caused due to irregular sex life. It's due to the effect of hormones like estrogen that are normally produced in the body.

Hope that answers your query. If you would like to follow up, I will be available for follow ups..

Regards,

Does fybrocystic breast disease increase breast cancer? Or is this fybrocystic breast disease a reason to have regular check at the gynaecologist. I have read that thisfybrocystic breast disease makes it more difficult see the difference between a cyst and a tumorous tissue on an x-ray photo or on the echo of the breasts.

Hi,

Good to hear from you again.

Fibrocystic changes doesn't increase the chances of breast cancer. Symptoms usually improve after menopause as its hormone related.

Due to lumpy feeling in the breasts sometimes its difficult on self examination to determine any cysts, lumps etc. But a mammogram is sufficient to confirm the condition.
After 40 yrs of age, it is advisable to have a yearly check up.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you a good health.

Regards.
