Question: Swelling on breasts and backside

 james joseph - Sun Sep 23, 2007 7:20 am

My wife is 40 yrs having swelling on her breasts at least once in a month and also very painful. She is a Senior secretary for the last 15 yrs. She had medical scan for Breast Cancer but result is negative. Prescribed painkillers cause stomach problems and discontinued. We are in United Arab Emirates and here the doctors are not giving any specific reasons. She had Rh factors test in lab and result is negative. She underwent Ayurvedic treatment liike massage for 21 days. Now again she is suffereing the pain. What could be the reasons.

Thank you,

User avatar Some women have swelling in the breasts as a result of hormonal changes, especially around the time of their periods. Does this swelling coincide with her menses?
