Most women face breast-related problems at some point in their lives. A number of factors such as your age, hormone levels and the medicines you take can make your breast undergo some changes, which may make you feel something is wrong. While in many cases these problems are usually benign, in some, they can hint towards certain serious breast conditions. Thus, it is always suggested to see a “breast specialist” in case you notice anything different with your breast.

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 fibrous lumps found in breasts. These lumps are non-cancerous and do not cause any pain or discomfort as such. These lumps are mobile i.e. they move when touch and are not stuck to the tissue. While fibroadenomas are not worrisome, like any other lumps, they need to be evaluated. In some cases, these lumps may be removed surgically.

Benign fibrocystic disease

Benign fibrocystic disease refers to a condition in which a woman has a combination of cysts and thickened breast tissue. These are non-cancerous lumps which are more common 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 characterized as a fluid-filled sac in the breast tissue. These cysts can change in size with the menstrual cycle and can be painful. Breast cysts are common in women between the ages of 35-50. While these cysts are harmless, any abnormality with the breast must be evaluated by a breast specialist.

Mastitis

Mastitis refers to the inflammation of the breasts which may cause heat, lumpiness, redness, and pain in the affected breast tissue. The main cause of mastitis is an infection which may be caused during breastfeeding. If you are diagnosed with this condition, a breast specialist may put you on a course of medicines. In case of an abscess, if formed, surgery may be needed.

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a chronic condition caused by 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 suspicious lump in the breast must be immediately evaluated by a breast specialist to rule out breast cancer. Early detection can be life-saving. At Apollo Spectra, we understand the seriousness of cancer and provide comprehensive care for those fighting breast cancer.
