How does breast fibrosis take place?

Breast fibroids are not cancerous (benign) tumors and are also not dangerous, but can make the person uncomfortable or uncomfortable due to painful lumps and clearly floating tumors, especially in the upper, outer areas of the breast. Breast symptoms tend to be most unpleasant at the time before menstruation. So how does breast fibroid peeling work?

1.Symptoms of breast fibrosis

Signs and symptoms of fibrocystic breast include:

  • These thickened breast tumors tend to blend into the surrounding breast tissue
  • Breast pain
  • The size of breast tumors fluctuates with the menstrual cycle
  • Nipple fluids of green or dark brown color are prone to discharge without squeezing
  • The same changes on the sides
  • Increased levels of breast pain or lumps from mid-ovulation to just before menstruation

Breast fibroids are common in women between the ages of 20 and 50 and are rarely seen in meninged women, unless they are treated with hormones.

When to see a doctor?

Most breast fibroids do not affect the health of the person, however, go to a medical facility for examination if:

  • You detect a new breast tumor or a lump that grows enlarged
  • There is a position on the breast that hurts constantly and becomes more and more painful
  • Changes in the breast persist after menstruation
  • Your doctor previously discovered you had a breast tumor but now it's bigger

2. Causes of Breast Fibroids

The exact cause of breast fibroids is not yet found, but experts suspect that the hormones that produce – especially estrogen – play a role in the development of this pathology.

3. Breast fibroids and breast cancer

Breast fibroids do not increase the risk of breastcancer , but changes that take place in the breast can make it more difficult for you or your doctor to determine if the tumor is cancerous during breast examination and mammograms. The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends that women aged 50 to 74 take mammograms every two years.

4. Treatment of breast fibroids

If the person does not have symptoms of breast fibroids or your symptoms are mild and do not affect life then treatment is not required. But in cases of severe pain or large, painful fibroids, the patient will need to carry out treatment by the following method:

  • Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA). The doctor will use a small and empty needle to store fluid from the tumor out. Remove the fluid to confirm that the tumor is a breast fibroid and that it will collapse to help the patient eliminate the discomfort caused by the fibroid.
  • Breast fibroid peeling surgery. This method is only used in cases where the patient has a persistent tumor that cannot be resolved definitively after several small needle punctures or in cases where the doctor suspects that the fibroid has other abnormal characteristics. During the surgery to perform fibroid peeling, the doctor will make an incision of the patient's skin in a flowery shape or in a ring in a areola or locations where the scar is difficult to see. The doctor then carefully removes the tumors gently to avoid damage to the mammary glands and neighboring tissues. Once the tumors have been removed, the doctor will use the indicators to prevent bleeding

Breast fibroid peeling surgery is commonly used to treat breast fibroids
  • Use painkillers with over-the-counter painkillers, such as acetaminophen or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB) or prescription drugs.
  • Oral contraceptives are intended to reduce hormone levels that have an effect on the cycle leading to breast fibroids.

Share99 International Health Hub provides breast cancer screening packages to help customers check and screening for signs of breast follicles as well as the risks of breast cancer. The examination package will include mammograms and ultrasound diagnosis of the mammary glands on both sides for accurate results, assisting the doctor in the examination.
