Breast Specialist Doctor in Bangalore

Breast issues are common in growing girls and women. Most women experience some breast related issues at some point. A wide range of factors such as age, hormone levels and the medicines you take can make your breast undergo some changes, which may give you a feeling that something is wrong. While in most cases these problems are not too major,  in some, they can hint towards certain serious breast conditions.

When should you see a breast specialist?

Different breast conditions have different symptoms. Any abnormality with the breasts must be immediately evaluated. Some common symptoms of breast problems include-

  • A hard lump in the breast which does not move or cause any pain
  • Painful or swollen breasts
  • Dimpling or puckering of the skin of the breast
  • Redness or feeling of warmth in the breasts
  • Abnormal discharge from nipples
What are some common breast conditions?
There are a number of breast conditions which can range from being benign to life-threatening. Some of the most common breast problems include-

  • Fibroadenomas

Fibroadenomas are benign lumps found in breasts. These lumps are non-cancerous and do not usually cause any pain or discomfort. These lumps move when touched and are not hard and stuck to the tissue. While fibroadenomas are not something to worry about, like any other lumps, they need to be evaluated by a breast specialist. In some cases, these lumps may be removed surgically.

  • Mastitis

Mastitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the breasts which may cause heat, lumpiness, redness, and pain in the affected breast tissue. Mastitis mainly occurs as a result of an infection which may be caused during breastfeeding. If you are diagnosed with this condition, a breast specialist may treat it with a course of medicines. In case of an abscess, if formed, surgery may be needed.

  • Benign fibrocystic disease

A benign fibrocystic disease is a condition in which a woman has a combination of cysts along with a thickened breast tissue. These are benign (non-cancerous) lumps which are prevalent in aging women. These lumps may undergo changes with hormonal changes in the breast tissues. These lumps usually vanish with menopause, however, if they don’t, you may need a hormonal replacement therapy.

  • Breast Cysts

Breast cysts are fluid-filled sac found in the breast tissue. These cysts can be painful and change in size with the menstrual cycle. Breast cysts usually occur in women between the ages of 35-50. While these cysts are not worrisome, any abnormality with the breast must be evaluated by a breast specialist.

  • Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a chronic condition which occurs as a result of the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the breast. Breast cancer is categorized by the formation of a cancerous lump in the breast which may or may not is accompanied by other symptoms. Any abnormal lump in the breast must be immediately evaluated by a breast specialist to rule out the possibility of breast cancer. Early detection of this condition can be life-saving. At Apollo Spectra, we understand the seriousness of cancer and give comprehensive care for those fighting breast cancer.
