Track 19: Breast Diseases:-
Breast illnesses come in a wide variety of forms. They might be painful or not painful and include growths, cysts, and infections. Some growths are benign, which means they are not cancer, while others are malignant, which means they can spread.
The most frequent breast disorders include sore breasts, mastitis (breast inflammation), cysts, benign tumors, and malignancy.
Women should be conscious of how their breasts feel and seem, and they should visit a doctor if they detect any changes. Breast Screen encourages women aged 50 to 74 to have a free mammogram every two years.
Women are often provided a combination of ultrasound and needle biopsy to identify the reason if anything worrisome is discovered. Though less frequently, breast illnesses can also affect men. To discover dependable information regarding breast illnesses, click on the links below.
Benign Breast Disease:-
You are more likely to develop breast lumps if you have a benign breast condition. Although seeing a lump in the breast might be frightening, these changes are benign (not cancer). Your risk of breast cancer rises with certain breast conditions. The majority of benign lumps disappear on their own.
What triggers benign breast disease?
1. Noncancerous breast lumps are frequently caused by:
2. Breast tissue modifications (fibrocystic breast changes).
3. Breast infection (mastitis)
4. Breast damage scar tissue.
5. Hormone changes, particularly during menstruation, pregnancy, or menopause.
6. Use of drugs, such as hormone replacement treatment and hormonal contraceptives (birth control pills).
7. Drinks that contain caffeine.
What signs or symptoms are present in benign breast disease?
While getting dressed, taking a shower, or performing breast self-examination, you can discover breast changes or a lump. These alterations can occasionally be seen with a mammogram. Other symptoms of benign breast illness besides a breast lump include:
1. Breast discomfort (mastalgia).
2. Nipple discharge
3. Alteration in breast size, shape, or contour.
4. A nipple that is inverted, wrinkled, or scaly.
5. Breasts with dimples, puckers, or scales.
Can I have benign breast illness more than once?
Throughout your life, you may have several benign breast lumps, which are rather common. When hormone levels alter as a result of menstruation or menopause, your breasts may feel lumpy or sensitive. Anytime you feel a lump or see a change in your breast, you should get in touch with your doctor.
What side effects might benign breast illness cause?
You are more likely to develop breast cancer if you have certain benign breast conditions, such as atypical hyperplasia. Benign breast lumps can occasionally cause pain. For the removal of uncomfortable lumps, your doctor could advise surgery. Unfortunately, some fibroadenoma lumps recur after surgery.
What impact does pregnancy have on benign breast disease?
Breast lumps, discomfort, and nipple discharge might be brought on by changes in hormone levels during pregnancy. While nursing, you’re also more likely to encounter benign breast changes or get mastitis, a breast infection. Rarely are breast alterations brought on by pregnancy or nursing malignant. However, if you observe any change in your breasts, you should contact your healthcare professional.
Non-Cancerous Breast Disease:-
Almost all women eventually experience non-cancerous (benign) breast illness. There are many benign conditions. None are fatal, though some may resemble malignant signs. Knowing the many forms, their symptoms, and how they are identified and treated might be helpful for this reason.
Signs & Symptoms:-
Your breast will be impacted differently by various benign breast disorders. However, each of them will bring about some unusual alteration. This might be a strange bulge in the breast tissue, discharge from the nipple, or another symptom.
Many benign breast disorders, including:
1. Ache, swell, and/or soreness
2. Redness or other skin irritation
3. A bump that may be felt through the skin or nipple
4. Nipple retracting
5. Discharge from the breast that is not milk
For this reason, if you have any of these symptoms, you must immediately get in touch with a medical expert.
Identifying Benign Breast Conditions:-
A breast screening is necessary to identify if a problem is benign or malignant. Your problem will be diagnosed using the same techniques that are used to find cancer. These could include:
1. Medical History: You will be questioned about your medical history, including if you or a family member have ever had cancer. You will also be questioned about your lifestyle, overall breast health, and other topics.
2. Physical Exam: A doctor will perform a thorough visual and physical check on you to look for any indications of cancer or other benign diseases.
3. Imaging Tests: Your doctor may recommend mammography, ultrasound, or MRI to gain a better image of your breast tissue.
4. A sample of any nipple discharge and/or a biopsy of aberrant breast tissue are two more potential diagnostic procedures.
