Many women inconvenience chest pain before menstruation. Mammary gland swell, become painful whentouch. All the unpleasant symptoms disappear with the arrival of menstruation, but after three or four weeks all over again. Someone living with these symptoms for years, not knowing that it is breast, a very dangerous disease.
This disease will be discussed in the article, I have prepared specially for our site. I would like to tell you what is the breast and, of course, address the issue of its treatment.
How does breast?
needed for the development of mastitis push thatlaunch illness. It can be prolonged stress, infections, abortions, smoking, alcohol, lack of breastfeeding, and is now fashionable, sunbathing topless. Of great importance is heredity. If your mother and grandmother had breast disease, you need to visit mammalogy at least twice a year.
In addition to these factors, essential for the development ofmastitis is a hormonal imbalance - this is due to a change in the level of progesterone in the blood of women. The level of this hormone is changed depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle of the woman and the emotional state.
None of us is safe from accidental injuryBreast: pushed into the crowd, pressed in the crush of the subway ... and please, breasts become painful, there are seal ... these seals are formed by fibrous tissue changes - grows connective tissue and replaces a normal breast tissue.
Diagnosis of mastitis
As mentioned above, when mastitis breastbecomes painful to the touch, it is very difficult for women. In addition, in the mammary gland appear uneven seal - if most feel the breast, it turns out that under the skin are like lumps and bumps. Their appearance is due to a change in prostate tissue. Besides chest pain a woman can be confusing for discharge from the nipple. In this case, an urgent need to go to the doctor.
When you notice at suspicious symptoms,You can also try to identify yourself mastopathy. To do this, you need to undress from the waist up, stand before a mirror, lift one arm and inspect the breast carefully. If there are no external changes (and you should immediately alert the modified portions of the skin: a thin, thickened, wrinkled skin as a "lemon peel"), then you can begin to palpate. Starting from the axilla, gently palpate the breast, all parts of the breast. A sign of mastitis will be uneven compaction under the skin of balls, probably painful on palpation. After self-test, contact your doctor. He will prescribe ultrasound or x-ray examination, to establish an accurate diagnosis and begin treatment.
Treatment of mastitis
If the time to seek medical help, you can stop for a disease in the early stages and prevent such terrible consequences, as the reincarnation of mastitis in cancer, for example.
If you contact mammologist with complaints of painchest before menstruation and discharge from the nipples, likely the doctor will prescribe you immunomodulatory, antioxidant herbal drugs rich in iodine and vitamins A, E and C. These drugs can stop breast mastopathy and return to normal.
But sadly, our site has to admitthe fact that the Russian people tend to endure to the end, hoping that the disease will be "very". Therefore, many women turn to mammology much later than you need for easy and quick cure. In such cases, physicians prescribe drugs or combined, which contain plant hormones and components, or some hormones. For the regulation of the menstrual cycle and reduce chest pain, doctors often prescribe hormonal contraceptives. The hormones contained in them, contribute to the reduction of fibrotic foci and slow down the development of mastitis. If the chest pain is very strong, the doctors allow the use of painkillers and diuretics. Diuretic is necessary to remove excess fluid and reduce swelling of the breast. But what kind of preparations can be taken only by the doctor says! Self-medication with mastitis may end very badly.
In the most severe cases of mastitis withdevelop breast cysts (education, fluid-filled). Previously, they were completely removed together with the breast, but now the surgeon removes only the affected area, the chest remains in place. The operation will resemble a thin scar, which is completely invisible under clothing. However, this does not insure a woman from the development of mastitis on the remaining breast.
When breast cysts doctor may prescribecyst puncture (needle injected into 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, so it does have reason to believe that the change mastopathy breast cancer tissues may occur. However, there are different forms of mastitis, and not each of them can develop into cancer. If the puncture cysts are formed again, the procedure shall be appointed or re-decision prompt intervention. Pumping liquid (puncture) is carried out not only to remove the cyst, after also carried out a biopsy. Biopsy - a microscopic examination of the tissues, allowing 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.
The key to success is the treatment of mastitiscure a disease or condition caused mastopathy. So, for the detection of the disease, which became the impetus for the development of mastitis appoint endocrinologist consultation, carried out a comprehensive examination of the body.
