Introduction

Breast disorders in pregnancy can cause significant discomfort and anxiety for expectant mothers. It is important to diagnose and manage these conditions promptly to ensure the well-being of both the mother and the baby. This guide aims to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing breast disorders in pregnancy other than breast cancer.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: W95 Breast disorder in pregnancy/puerperium other
– ICD-10 Code: O92.5 Other and unspecified disorders of breast and lactation associated with childbirth

Symptoms

  • Breast pain: Expectant mothers may experience breast pain, which can range from mild to severe. The pain may be constant or intermittent and may worsen with hormonal changes.
  • Breast swelling: The breasts may become swollen and tender due to hormonal changes during pregnancy.
  • Nipple discharge: Some women may experience nipple discharge, which can be clear, yellow, or milky in color.
  • Breast lumps: Breast lumps may develop during pregnancy, which can be benign or malignant.

Causes

  • Hormonal changes: The hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can cause breast swelling, tenderness, and pain.
  • Increased blood flow: Increased blood flow to the breasts during pregnancy can lead to breast engorgement and discomfort.
  • Milk production: The breasts prepare for milk production during pregnancy, which can cause breast changes and lumps.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s symptoms, including the duration, severity, and any associated factors.
  • Ask about any previous breast disorders or surgeries.
  • Inquire about the patient’s obstetric history, including the number of pregnancies and any complications.
  • Assess the patient’s risk factors for breast disorders, such as a family history of breast cancer or previous breast biopsies.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a thorough breast examination, including inspection and palpation of both breasts and the axillary lymph nodes.
  • Look for any signs of inflammation, such as redness or warmth.
  • Assess the size, shape, and consistency of any breast lumps.
  • Check for nipple discharge and assess its color and consistency.

Laboratory Tests

  • Blood tests: Routine blood tests may be done to assess the patient’s overall health and rule out any underlying conditions.
  • Hormone levels: Hormone levels, such as estrogen and progesterone, may be measured to evaluate hormonal changes during pregnancy.
  • Tumor markers: Tumor markers, such as carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and cancer antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3), may be measured to assess the risk of malignancy.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound is the imaging modality of choice for evaluating breast lumps during pregnancy. It can help determine the nature of the lump and guide further management.
  • Mammography: Mammography is generally avoided during pregnancy due to the potential harm to the fetus. However, it may be considered in certain cases if the benefits outweigh the risks.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): MRI may be used in specific situations to further evaluate breast abnormalities detected on ultrasound.

Other Tests

  • Breast biopsy: If a breast lump is suspicious for malignancy, a biopsy may be performed to obtain a tissue sample for further evaluation.
  • Fine-needle aspiration (FNA): FNA may be used to aspirate fluid from a breast cyst or to obtain a sample from a solid breast lump.
  • Ductography: Ductography involves injecting a contrast agent into the milk ducts to evaluate any abnormalities or nipple discharge.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s symptoms and response to treatment.
  • Educate the patient about breast self-examination and the importance of reporting any changes or new symptoms.
  • Provide information about breastfeeding techniques and support resources.
