Breast Cysts

 

As is obvious, lumps in the breast must always be reviewed to ensure there is no risk of cancer. Regular personal breast checks, mammograms, and where adviced by your doctor, ultrasounds and breast biopsies must  be performed to exclude any cancer concerns.

 

In the instance that lumps are cleared and diagnosed as cysts, most cysts respond to treatment aimed at overcoming Oestrogen Dominance.  

 

Are their any additional considerations?

 

Iodine levels are important to consider. If urine iodine tests indicate low iodine supplementation is encouraged.

 

Vitamin A and E supplementation may also be useful.

 

If tenderness accompanies the cyst high dose Evening Primrose Oil may be helpful.
