Dear Friend,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

Hormonal imbalances can cause breast tenderness.

Do worry if you have any discharge through nipple or localized tenderness or swelling

doctor1 MD 30 yrs of 3 boys...11 yr old twins n a 9 yr old. I found a grape sized lump in my left breast about a year ago. Im going nxt month to have it checked. Its kind of hard but doesnt seem rooted to the breast. It does cause some pain during my menstrual cycle . It also does get smaller but never bigger than the original size. I researched lumps n read that this type of lump would b considered a cyst or another type...i cant remember the name but i no it starts with an n . Im just wondering if its something i should b worried about. My mom did have breast cancer n has been fine for 20 yrs now...after a mastectomy . I no im young n i do consume a ton of caffeine. Im going to have it checked but im jst curious is it something that i should b really scared of?

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.

Can a simple breast cyst turn into a complex one? Can a breast cancer hide behind a cyst and be undetectable?
