Fibrocystic breast is not a disease! How to recognize!

ROJoson Medical Clinic

From Mayo Clinic

Accessed: April 19, 2015

Fibrocystic breasts are composed of tissue that feels lumpy or rope-like in texture. Doctors call this nodular or glandular breast tissue.

It’s not at all uncommon to have fibrocystic breasts. More than half of women experience fibrocystic breast changes at some point in their lives. In fact, medical professionals have stopped using the term “fibrocystic breast disease” and now simply refer to “fibrocystic breasts” or “fibrocystic breast changes” because having fibrocystic breasts isn’t really a disease.

Although breast changes categorized as fibrocystic breasts are normal, they can cause breast pain, tenderness and lumpiness — especially in the upper, outer area of your breasts. Breast symptoms tend to be most bothersome just before menstruation.

ROJoson’s Stand:

1. I have stopped using fibrocystic breast disease since 1981.   I used “fibrocystic changes” or “fibrocystic breast changes”or “fibrocystic breast condition” especially those with pain.
