Appearance of a lump in the breast after finishing periods. Is it normal?

Hi, My periods had started on the 19th March and have ended today night. I had taken a 20 min brisk walk today evening after many many months and noticed this at night. My periods typically last over 5 days and more. On the 11th I had also developed a pain in the breast as if a lump is in but it disappeared within a week. Are these normal?

thank you for your query.

you're probably experiencing fibrocystic breast change a benign condition that occurs in at least 60 percent of all women of child-bearing age.Fibrocystic changes are associated with hormonal shifts in estrogen and progesterone, which affect the breast tissue. During the menstrual cycle, the breasts swell as the milk glands and ducts enlarge and the breasts retain water. After menstruation the breast swelling goes down in few days and the breasts return to normal.

some home remedies to help with it-
-avoiding foods and beverages containing caffeine, such as coffee, tea, chocolate and soft drinks, can decrease water retention and may help to alleviate the discomfort.
-Reducing fat in the diet may also be helpful
-application of heat can relieve uncomfortable symptoms, as does wearing a bra that provides firm support.

thank you,
wishing you good health
