  • Yes I do. I have the fibrocystic breasts, and it gets really bad sometime for me. What I have found that helps is heat (heating pad, hot bath, etc) and motrin. Also reducing the caffeine in your diet helps. Your doctor should be able to give you some more information on what can be done to help ease the symptoms. Also, if you have any that are particularly large and painful, they CAN be drained by fine needle aspiration. I had this done on one when they were wanting to do a biopsy. It helped quite a bit with the tenderness of that particular cyst. If you have any more questions, PM me!

  • Oh and mine are everywhere. They are from my armpit, up near my collar bone, pretty much everywhere there is breast tissue. But thankfully they are not super painful normally except for right before my period starts. Have you noticed that too? It's because the cysts grow and change during different parts of your cycle.

  • Mine feel tender like it feels as if I am pregnant at times but I am not...We just discovered a lump in one breast so now I have to have a mammo so we will see.
