I'm 28 years old with maternal family history of breast cancer. Recently I found some small lump in my right breast in the lower lateral quadrant. My periods are irregular and my breasts are generally tender one wk before the onset of periods till the 2rd day of menstruation. I got a mammogram ultrasound and fnac done which diagnosed it as benign breast lesion which is 22 mm which can be fibroadenoma. My doctor said it can be chronic cystic mastitis. And suggested a therapeutic test with danazol 100 mg thrice daily and vit E 200 mg once daily. Now my doubts are can I continue the steroid treatment? Will the lump resolve? Will there be any side effects after using danazol. Or should I get the lump excised. Please suggest.

I feel you should go with the doctor 's advice. Excision can be delayed. alternatively, you can go to a higher centre dealing with cancer cases. they will be the best judge
A non-cancerous lump in the breast is medically referred to as fibroadenoma and its prevalence is on the rise. ... But there is a therapy which can cure or in other words dissolve the lump and its recurrence fully by medicine, without any surgical intervention. That science is homeopathy. One must understand that all lumps are not always cancerous. Lumps often appear during menstruation or in women taking contraceptives, so they appear for a while and disappear later on. Action must be taken when the lump begins to enlarge and remains that way for a long period of time. A non-cancerous lump in the breast is medically referred to as fibroadenoma and its prevalence is on the rise. It occurs in about 10 per cent of all women. It is usually seen in women under the age of 30. With increasing age, the occurrence of fibroadenoma decreases. It usually has a firm, rubbery consistency with well defined margins, and moves freely under the skin, though there are many which are too small to be felt. It can be easily diagnosed by clinical examination, and by ultrasound or mammography. The chances of fibroadenoma being transformed into breast cancer are rare. Moreover, regression is frequent. It is commonly seen that patients are advised surgical removal of the lump, though chances of recurrence remain post-operatively. Homeopathy treats the patient with the disease, not merely disease. Undoubtedly, we consider the complaints of the patient but what actually caused the patient to develop that particular kind of disease is also well taken into consideration. Besides the family history, the effect of emotional stress of life plays a vital role in the development of fibroadenoma. There are many homeopathic medicines which can be used effectively in the treatment of fibroadenoma such as Phytolacca, Conium, Silicea, Carbo-animalis, Sulph etc.
22 mm fibroadenoma needs excised. Danazol will not help and has a huge list of side effects. Try evening primrose oil once daily.
