I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 year old girl. I have been experiencing pain in both my breasts since last two days and feel lumps too. This happens usually before my menstrual cycle and pain and lumps fade away by the end of the periods. My periods is due in 10 days time. The pain already stared and I feel lots of lumps. Should I go for cancer screening now or wait till my periods get over?

I am having multiple fibroadenoma in both breasts, which were very small" Is this fibroadenoma will become cancerous tumors in the future and is there any diet restrictions to get it reduced. Can you please answer my question.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
Dear mam, fibroadenomas are benign tumour and do not become malignant usually. You should get fnac confirmation to be really sure of it. You can either get it operated or just monitor periodically. Medicines used for this have side effects, so I will not recommend. Nothing related to diet may help but do regular work out.

Cyclic pain in breast is commonally because of fibroadenosis. It better you go for ultrasound of breast and if there is any lump then go for fnac also.

USG of right breast showing large hypoechoic SOL (22*15 mm) seen at upper quadrant and one small SOL (10*7 mm) seen in lower quardant. Is it breast cancer?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
Hi, it is most unlikely at your age to have breast cancer. Usually breast cancer presents as a single lump. I will need more features to make a diagnosis. Those sol (meaning space occupying lesions) will most likely be fibroadenomas which are benign lumps a caused by the normal changes in the breast with age. They will not turn to cancer. You can confirm it by getting an fnac done. It would be better if you consult a surgeon who can diagnose and treat it. Surgery is the only treatment for fibroadenomas, done if they are painful or large or for cosmetic reasons. Hope this helps. All the best.
