What is Mondor's Disease?

Those of us who do breast self-exam regularly often find things that are scary but ultimately benign (not cancer). Mondor's disease of the breast feels like a cord or a worm under the skin. It may be blue colored and may extend onto the upper part of the abdomen. If you have had recent breast surgery or other trauma to the breast your chances of developing Mondor's disease is higher than normal. The superficial veins in your skin may become irritated and sometimes form clots. This type of clot is not dangerous.

Typical Symptoms of Mondor's Disease

  • Lumps under the skin

  • Breast lump

  • Affected area is warm to touch

  • Swelling of the affected area

  • Affected area of skin has stinging or tingling

  • Fever

  • Feeling breathless

  • Pain in the arms and/or legs

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Mondor's Disease

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Do you have any lumps under your skin?

  • Do you have a breast lump?

  • Is the affected area hot to touch?

  • Is the affected area swollen?

  • Do you feel any pain or tingling in the affected skin areas?

Treatmentof Mondor's Disease

Most cases get better without treatment. Pain relievers and warm compresses can help with the discomfort and hasten healing. Also remember to wear loose clothing and stretchy bras without an underwire as tight garments may make the condition worse. Make sure the warm compresses are not too hot and do not burn your skin.
