Does Anyone Know The Cost Of Excisional Biopsy Here In The Philippines?

My mom has always been telling me that there's something painful in her breasts whenever she touches them and there are some lumps also. Last night, I touched her chest and I was surprised that it was hard down to her breast. Actually, she's afraid to have a medical examination on that but I really want to. I hope someone could answer this. Thank you :)

Answer

Leslie, since I don't think she could just walk in to a facility and ask for a biopsy, I'd guess she has to go through her regular doctor; and that would be the place to start. Painful, lumpy breasts - especially when the condition is present in both breasts - is often a sign of fibrocystic change, an uncomfortable but basically harmless condition. While it's possible your mom is experiencing breast cancer symptoms (it's always possible), it's probaby more likely it's something else. So do have her see a doctor; but please don't stress too much about cancer, OK? Good luck - PJH
