Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
Well a breast that gets noticeably larger and I see that you are 81 - the concern will be a possibly cyst or a possible cancer - so honestly I would suggest a breast exam and also a breast mammogram to see if there really is anything physically wrong.
Another possibility is that this could be an elevation in the hormone called Prolactin - so this should be checked with a Prolactin blood test,.
I hope this helps

You haven't given me even a hint of what the cause could be. Looks like I will spend a lot more money to get a reply. I am not happy.
Yes I did
the cause could be a CYST, a Cancer, or a possibly increase in your Prolactin level
Did you not see that when I initially wrote that for you .
I wrote that in my very first sentence
And, as a woman who is 81, the you need to get this evaluated for a possible breast cancer - because that would be something that would be concerning.
but the other possibilities would be a collection of fluid called a Cyst
or you might have an elevation of Prolactin that comes from Pituitary gland - which can cause the breast to enlarge
Please if you have more questions, please ask
Can you See everything I am writing?
I beg you to forgive me. I did not see your reply and I do thank you for your input. I had a mammogram and that was good, so will see an OB doctor to see about the possible prolactin. Again thanks.
that is okay
you are very welcome
I wish you well
