Another sign (a good one) of dropping estrogen levels?

hunter_txNovember 12, 2007

I have had lumpy breasts since I was in my early 20's. I've had a couple of biopsies (years and years ago) and they are fibroadenomas- basically just fatty fibrous tumors that are benign. They have been my constant companions throughout my adult life. I've noticed that over the past year, they are shrinking (right along with my breasts, lol). They seem to have migrated to my butt :)

Anyway, I'm wondering if with decreasing estrogen levels, these lumps shrink as a natural result. Any know for sure?

Mrs. H, I too have had these all my life. My mother has them, her mother has them and two of my sister's also have them. Ugh. I can't say, yet, whether mine are changing but they usually cause problems when I have my yearly mammo done and I end up having to have several views plus ultrasound.

And they darn well better NOT migrate to my butt! lol
