Well, I have always had this tense feeling in my breasts and they always hurt. Two years ago I had reddish lumps in my armpit and I saw doc. He examined (I had ultrasound check) and told me I had this fibrocustic disease. One of my breasts is one size bigger than the other, and I can feel the lumps in it. It's too hard, actually both of my breasts are too hard. He sai there is no need to remove the lumps before they get bigger.
Well, I hate this pain. And I'm not happy with the size of my breasts (left breast B, right breast C but it changes from bra to bra). At least I want to have breast reduction on my right breast because the look really disturbs me, and it's not easy to find the right bra. Plus, it is the one with more lumps.

I wonder if people wih fibrocystic disease can have breast reduction. Or the removal of lumps would make my breast smaller. And what can I do to lessen the pain in my breasts.

You can request a mammography first and then consult a plastic surgeon about breast correction. Be sure to mention pain in the breasts during your examinations.
