Creating Waves of Awareness
BENIGN PAINFUL SOLID MASS IN BREAST
Patient a lady, 30 years old.
First visit on 4th October, 2012.
The patient related her complaint as under:
On 28th September, 2012 she felt pain in her left breast, so on examination she noted a lump there. The pain was of stitching nature and extending to left axilla also. The lump was tender to touch.
She was feeling pain and numbness in various parts of her body ever since her Caesarean four years ago, but so far did not feel pain in her breast.
The other symptoms she was feeling were as follows:
Her first Mammogram was done on 3rd October, 2012 which revealed:
Left breast shows asymmetrical density in the upper outer quadrant. There is no clustered microcalcification present. No dermal changes of malignancy are seen.
Ultrasound is a reliable non-invasive technique to diagnose fibroadenomas.
Sonography of left breast shows a 13.8 x 6.9 x 14.4 mm in diameter solid mass with regular well defined margins at 2’clock position.
Left axilla has a 16.3 x 6.5 mm in diameter solitary node with preserved central ecogenicity.
IMPRESSION: Appearances are suggestive of a benign solid mass in left breast at 2 o’clock position. BI-RADS CATEGORY 3.
The copy of the Mammogram Report dt. 3rd October, 2012 is produced below:
She was advised for surgery. But she was afraid of surgery therefore she sought homoeopathic help and thus visited my clinic. She was very frightened, depressed and tearful. I had treated various such cases successfully in the past; therefore, I consoled her and promised her to do my best for her.
On 4th October, 2012 Sepia 200 was given to be taken once in two days.
(RX 5 – 6 globules of No. 10 size in a little Sugar of Milk as one dose).
She felt slight initial aggravation in the pain, which was extending to left axilla.
Vomiting on drinking some quantity of water was stopped.
Leukorrhea, also spelled leucorrhoea, flow of a whitish, yellowish, or greenish discharge from the vagina of the female that may be normal or that may be a sign of infection. Such discharges may originate from the vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or, most commonly, the cervix. Leukorrhea may occur during pregnancy and is considered normal when the discharge is thin, white, and relatively odourless.
Leucorrhoea was also diminished.
On 24th October, 2012, Asterias rubens 30 was given thrice. Gradual improvement was set in. The pain in the breast reduced and the lump became softer.
Some doses of Lac caninum 200 were also given intermittently as she used to feel aggravation in the hardness of the lump and pain some days before the menses which used to ameliorate after the menses.
On 12th January, 2013 the pain in the breast was gone. The lump apparently became smaller and quite soft.
Meanwhile, she had other complaints therefore she was treated accordingly.
She again felt the pain in her left breast on 26th March, 2013, in the night for a while. So, she visited on 28th March, 2013 with following symptoms:
Gave her a dose of Natrum muriaticum 1 M followed by Silicea 200, one dose once in 2 days.
This prescription continued till 24th June, 2013.
Sono Mammography was again carried out on 6th, April, 2013
The findings were:
IMPRESSION: Left breast mass appears benign but requires follow up. BI-RADS CATEGORY 3.
The copy of the Mammogram Report is produced below:
The axillary node which was noted in the first Mammogram of 3rd, October, 2012 has by now dissolved. But there was no appreciable reduction in the size of mammary mass so far.
She again came on 18th November, 2013 with stitching pain in left breast. She was feeling pain in the neck after prolonged table work. Apparently, the solid mass in left breast has reduced much in size. She had slight tenderness at side of the mass. The stitching pain was extending toward left axilla.
Now Carbo animalis 200, one dose every 4th day was given.
She reported improvement in breast pain on 2nd December, 2013.
On 1st March, 2014, she reported that she is feeling acute pain in the breast for
8 – 10 days. There was much tenderness in the breast and the pain was like neuralgic pain in the breast.
Phallendrinum 30 was given by which the pain subsided. Afterwards there was only mild pain felt only occasionally till April, 2014. After April 2014 she did not feel the pain.
She got her Mammogram done again on 29th August, 2014.
IMPRESSION: Sonomammography does not reveal any mass lesion.
BI-RADS CATEGORY 1 NEGATIVE MAMMOGRAM.
Thus it is clinically proved that the Benign solid mass in left breast has been dissolved by minute doses of homoeopathic medicines given at sufficient long interval.

During the past five decades of my homoeopathic practice I have treated numerous cases of lumps of various kinds and size in one or both breasts in all other cases the patients did not summon courage to tell their story like the patient in the present case she did allow me to videograph her story as such I was able to produce the case in a documentary uploaded on the YouTube which can be watched by searching - Dr. S. K. Mamgain, the watcher will find there numerous other documentaries of different cases .
Thank you for the description of this extensive case. I would like to know how you decide when to change the remedy and is this typical to give so many different remedies over the course of care?
Dear Debby Bruck,
Thank You. I try to select the remedy on the basis of the symptoms present at the time of the visit of the patient.
