Natural Treatment for Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Fibrocystic breast disease affects the breasts of women, forming lumps and giving breast tissue a ropey texture. A moderately common condition, fibrocystic breasts should perhaps be referred to less as a disease than as fibrocystic breast changes, by which name it is often called. Fibrocystic breast cysts are known as nodular or glandular breast tissue, and they can cause breast pain, tenderness, and lumps. These lumps are non-cancerous, easy to detect, and can be free-moving in relation to the structure of the breasts. Symptoms are more aggravated before menstruation.
While common, the exact cause of fibrocystic breasts has not been discovered; but as the symptoms worsen just before menstruation and as the condition typically subsides after menopause, there is a link to hormone levels. While there are no life-threatening aspects to this condition, breast lumps can make it difficult to detect breast cancer.
