Mondor's Disease
Was diagnosed with Mondor's Disease last week after mammogram and ultrasound.  Both were normal.  No history of trauma; just showed up one day.  Hard to find info about it, tho since it's pretty uncommon.  Anyone else out there have this?

Hi,

Mondor’s disease is a benign disorder of the breast. It is a thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins of the breast. It can affect any of the veins in the breast, but most commonly affects those under the nipple. It may occur from wearing very tight clothes, infection, recent surgery and trauma as pointed out by you. It present as a cord under the skin. The treatment is conservative that is it is allowed to heal and usually it goes over a coupl of months. The pain takea little longer and may need some OTC painkillers. Good support while trying to wear loose clothes is recommended.

Hope this helped. let us know if you have any queries.

Best regards.

Hi - was dx in 2003 with invasive ductal cancer, with associated intermediate DCIS, 4/18 lymph nodes positive. Some 3 yrs later I had a long ropey lump in the same breast and got an urgent appt with my bc surgeon. My idc tumour was non-palpable, found on a normal 3 yrly mammo, so I had no idea what a malignant tumour looked or felt like. He immediately dx Mondor's disease and said he had never seen this condition in a bc patient, but had seen it in non-bc patients. He asked if I would let all the radiographers and radiologists on duty that day to come and have a look and a feel, as it is so rare that most of them have never seen it. Be my guest!
There is no treatment, it finally sorts itself out - in my case nearly a year, but everything is fine now. You can google Mondor's for more technical information.

Take care,
Liz.
