breastfeeding and is now fashionable, sunbathing topless.
Of great importance is heredity. If your mother and grandmother
had breast, you need to visit mammalogy at least twice a year.
In addition to these factors, essential for the development of mastitis is
hormonal imbalance - this is due to a change in the level of progesterone in
woman's blood. The level of this hormone is changed depending on the phase
menstrual cycle and emotional condition of the woman.
None of us is safe from accidental injury breast:
They pushed into the crowd, pressed in the crush of the subway ... and please, chest

formed by fibrous tissue changes - grows connective
tissue and replaces a normal breast tissue.
Diagnosis of mastitis
It mentioned above, when mastitis breast becomes painful when
touch, it is very difficult for women. In addition, breast

it turns out that under the skin are like lumps and bumps. Their
occurrence associated with the change in the prostate tissue. Besides chest pain
a woman can be confusing for discharge from the nipple. In this case, you need to
immediately consult your doctor.

wrinkled skin as a "lemon peel"), you can start

Treatment of mastitis
If the time to seek medical attention
aid can be stopped during the early stages of the disease or
prevent such terrible consequences, as the reincarnation of mastitis in cancer, for example.
If you contact mammologist with complaints of chest pain before
monthly, and discharge from the nipples, likely the doctor will prescribe you

what you need for easy and quick cure. In these cases, doctors
appoint or combined drugs, which include
vegetable and hormonal components, or some hormones.

However, this does not insure a woman from the development of mastitis on the remaining breast.
When cysts breast cysts doctor may prescribe a puncture (inside
introduced needle and aspirated its contents). Before the puncture
required comprehensive examination: palpation, ultrasound - for women to 40
years, mammography - for older women. No one will
do you puncture "just so" - when the doctor prescribes this procedure,
therefore, he has reason to believe that the change mastopathy
breast cancer tissues may occur. However, there
different forms of mastitis, and not every one can be reborn in
If the newly formed, then the procedure after the puncture of cysts
appointed or re-adopted a decision on the operational
intervention. Pumping liquid (puncture) is carried out not only with the

microscopic examination of tissues, which allows to determine whether there is
malignant changes in the mammary gland. As the most extreme method of treatment of mastitis in the most severe cases, resorted to a complete removal of the breast, replacing them with implants.
