What is mastopathy?

A condition where a painful lump forms in the breast. This is caused by imbalances in female hormone levels, hence symptoms tend to occur before and during menses.

Symptoms of mastopathy

  • Breast lump

  • Pain when pressing on the breast

  • Headache with sharp, electric shock-like pain

  • Smooth, round and movable lump

Questions your doctor may ask to check for mastopathy

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose mastopathy

  • Do you feel a lump in your breast?

  • Is there pain when pressing on the breast?

  • Does your headache feel a sharp pain like an electric shock?

  • Do you feel a smooth lump under your skin which can be moved around?

Treatment for mastopathy

This condition may get better without treatment. In the meantime, medications and hormone treatment can be given to relieve pain. This condition is sometimes caused by diabetes, and good control of blood sugar levels may help to prevent it from coming back.
