Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help.

I am a 39 year old female. I have noticed lump type formation on the sides of breast which appears and disappears automatically, please suggest medication for the same.

This may happen due to hormonal changes. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem without adverse effects. The medicine acts internally and gradually the lump will be dissolved. Take homoeopathic medicine phytolacca 200 once daily for 10 days.

You need to do an USG for KUB and an urine R/e M/e. Probably you have an enlarged prostate which is very common in your age. There are initial medications which can be started to control your problem. For that you need to consult me privately coz writing a medicine in an open forum is unethical for doctors as people can use this for self medication which should not be encouraged at all. Thanks stay healthy stay happy.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. You seem to be depressed. However, I would advise you to consult a general physician who can clinically evaluate and advise appropriately. Simultaneously, a little bit of change in diet/ lifestyle may also help cope up suitably. Taking ginger tea (without milk) may help overcome depression, indigestion and nausea, if any. Have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean one and stay well hydrated. Exercising daily for at least 30 minutes can help too. Walking, in open air, is the safest as well as the best should you have no other health related constraints. Early morning yoga, breathing exercises and meditation shall also help you keep focused, relaxed and help you connect with yourself better. It would facilitate face things, as they come, with ease and also enjoy every moment of your life by being able able to give your best, irrespective. If possible, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place with plenty of greenery can help you relax, rejuvenate, feel blessed, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

For example, smoking is responsible for 90% of lung cancer. Hence avoidance of smoking is important preventive measure in case of lung cancer.

Looks like lipoma or neurobibroma both are benign. Go for fnac (needle test) just to prove the diagnosis.

Hi, no need to worry. These lumps are part of normal changes in the breast with age. Sometimes they may be painful especially during menses. If the lump is large or painful, it can be removed surgically. It won't turn into cancer, so don't worry. Consult a surgeon if want to get it removed. Hope this helps. Take care.
