Hi, i'm an 18 year old female and i have been suffering from breast swelling of my right breast for about 3 months now. it started as a small lump, then the lump dissapeared and the breast swelled with fluid about 2 cup sizes bigger than my other breast. i was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which may have something to do with this, but im really not sure. my doctors told me to avoid caffiene, and i have, but its not making a difference. i was also told that this kind of swelling occurs a lot for girls around menstration, but i have not noticed it dissapearing or reappearing with the pattern of my menstration. it has remained swelled since i first noticed the lump. so what i want to ask is, has anyone had something similar happen, or know anything about what this might be? this whole thing has really affected my self esteem, and im worrying alot about what it might be.
