Fibrocystic disease, also known as ‘benign cystic mastitis’ has certainly frightened many women who, on awakening in the mornings, have found painful lumps in their breasts, the conditions strikes almost half of all women at some point in their lives, usually between the ages of 30 and 50. Immediate relief is gained by minor surgery, either in the doctor’s office by needle aspiration or in a hospital on an out patient basis for surgical removal of the lump. One may feel better at first, but the disease tends to be chronic, so you may find yourself returning for repeated removal of lumps or fluid The cysts occur, because of the abnormal ratio of estrogen and progesterone circulating in the body during the menstrual cycle. That change in hormone levels is an antidote to estrogen’s disturbing effect of cyst formation in the breast. Some allopathy doctors treated this cyst with the help of vitamin-E, but the results are not encouraging.
Unani herbal treatment certainly seems to be a rational therapy for this common problem.
