Fibrocystic breast can be described as a condition that develops when fluid is not being removed quickly enough from the breast leading to the formation of cysts in them. These lumps move about around the breast, develop and shrink, though they are benign. Usually the fluids in the breast are moved out by the lymphatic system. However if there is excess fluid some may get trapped in different parts of the breast, tissue grows around them leading to these lumps. Cysts are harmless, but they should be monitored, and a woman should check constantly her breasts so as to detect and control the cysts. Regular mammograms are recommended as well.

Discomfort, tenderness, and observable growth are usual specifically around menstrual periods when there is change in the levels of estrogen; it is possible that the cysts fade away after the monthly period. Nevertheless if the lump is hard, does not move easily and does not disappear, please consult with a physician without further delay.
