Is there anyone out there who was diagnosed with fibrocystic breasts after menopause?
Also, has anyone ever known this condition to disappear by itself? Or does anyone have any tips or recommendations on how to make this go!!! (not so much getting rid of the pain, but getting rid of the actual condition itself?)
I have never had any breast problems in my life, but last year I was recalled after a routine mammogram. After many tests - ultrasounds, two needle biopsies, an MRI and many more mammograms, I was eventually diagnosed with benign fibrosis and was offered surgery. They also said that I have very dense breasts. What is puzzling me is that from what I've read this is mainly a younger woman's condition I can only imagine that this is due to fluctuating hormones, possibly excess estrogen (it has been 5 years since I had a period). I have decided not to go ahead with the operation, which now means that unless this condition disappears, I'm guessing that I will need to be constantly monitored for the rest of my life, which isn't great either.
