Fibrocystic Breast Disease

Treatments for Fibrocystic Breast Disease

In many cases, patients do not need treatment for fibrocystic breast disease. These women do not experience symptoms or only have minor symptoms. The condition is not life threatening and does not increase your risk of cancer. Symptoms should subside after the period begins.
 
For women with moderate pain, self-care measures may be recommended. These other treatments for fibrocystic breast disease include the following:
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen
  • Heat or cold compresses on the breast
  • Well-fitting/sports bra
 
For severe pain, doctors may recommend hormone therapy such as birth control pills, to relieve the pain.
 
Diagnosis is the best way to determine which treatment option is right for your condition. Schedule a screening appointment now.
