A condition marked by benign (noncancerous) changes in breast tissue. These changes may include irregular lumps or cysts, breast discomfort, sensitive nipples, and itching. These symptoms may change throughout the menstrual cycle and usually stop after menopause. Also called benign breast disease, fibrocystic breast changes, and mammary dysplasia.
I was "rewarded" with fibrocystic breast disease right after conquering my infertility. Not only do I have to deal with the pain & discomfort that limits greatly my daily life, but also the fear that it might camouflage something more serious. Life is just one battle after another.
