Fibrocystic Change - Treatments

Management includes:

  • Using a supportive bra
  • Taking analgesics e.g. Panadol, NSAIDs
  • Some women have found avoiding caffeine and reducing salt intake helpful in relieving symptoms but studies have not shown any significant impact
  • For women with painful breast cysts, this may be relieved by a fine needle aspiration to remove the cyst contents, otherwise management is largely expectant
  • Vitamins and dietary supplements such as evening primrose oil and Vitamin E
