Hopefully I post this in the right spot....
Back story....Over the past few months I've been experiencing excruciating stabbing pain in my right breast. I went to have it checked and my doctor found a lump. I was told to wait 2 months to see if it was hormone / period related or if my body would heal itself.....it didn't. I went back, same lump was there and more pain developed. I went to have an ultrasound done and they couldn't find a lump BUT they said I have alot of very dense breast tissue...which is probably why they couldn't see anything.
My doctor told me to take 1400ui's of vitamin E a day to help "turn off" whatever is going on for 2 months and strictly said NO caffeine (no tea, coffee, nothing). She also asked about my diet, health etc. She knew that I was training, eating right, good diet but then she asked about my caffeine intake. She said that dense tissue is not hereditary but it develops over time which could be caused by a number of things. Apparently "one" of the possibilities of the reason why I have developed it is because of caffeine (other reasons could be birth control, estrogen, etc). Dense tissue is very bad so of course I am freaked out, bad tissue and lump...oh joy
I realized that I was taking No-Explode for months and of course that's pure caffeine (I am not stating No-explode did this or anything of the sort). I was curious if anyone has experienced this or knows something related to this topic. Are their chemicals or nutrients in caffeine related drinks that could cause dense tissue?
Right now I just have to wait and see what the diagnosis is and may need to see a general surgeon but i figured I would come here and ask....plus may ease my mind
