Fibrocystic Breast Disease

Most premenopausal women experience fibro-cystic breast disease characterized by tenderness, sometimes painful breasts, and small lumps that can be felt. It may be part of PMS and is associated with an excess of estrogen. If the lump is tender or painful, it is likely a cyst and not a tumor. Avoiding coffee and any foods or drugs containing caffeine can reduce symptoms signifi cantly; allow 6 months for results. Eat a low-fat diet and eliminate dairy, meats, eggs, and poultry unless they are certified hormone free. Aerobic exercises have shown to alleviate breast tenderness. Natural progesterone applied topically days 15 to 25 of the menstrual cycle can result in the disappearance of the cysts.
