Im a 37 yr old female with no family history of breast cancer... Every other cancer but that... I had enlarged lymph nodes under my arm for about six wks and ache in left breast...nodes were confirmed to b swelled when was sent for mammo and ultra sound came back negative for cancer.No MRI required supposedly. Consultant thinks hormones.. Put me on evening primrose oil tabs ten weeks 1000mg.I hav had this pain up and down over the last few yrs maybe three times a yr but now almost everyday.not like panic attack pain..occurs during night or at times of relaxation. I assume not muscle or heart as doesn't occur when exercising or exerting pressure. The nodes are now down but come and go large..ache in breast continues.. Could it b just hormones when just on one side?thanks jane
Since the mammo and uSG has been normal so according to the description it seems like an enlarged lymph node which is quite common.Relax and take the treatment as advised ny your treating doctor.There are some things which might help in easing pain as:
1)Application of a hot compress to the affected breast. Soak a towel in castor oil and place it on the area that is affected. Keep this towel in place for about an hour for maximum results. You could also use plain castor oil to regularly massage your breasts. The application of castor oil mixed with essential oils or herbs is also regarded as an effective natural remedy.
2)Use of ginger tea is also popular when it comes to natural remedies for pain relief.
If there is no relief consider visiting your treating Physician for evaluation.
