How is diabetic mastopathy diagnosed and treated? See answer
I was diagnosed with diabetic mastopathy a few years ago and had a lumpectomy. Some of it was left behind, so not to cause disfigurement. Since that time I experience breast pain and throbbing a couple times a week. Is this pain connected to my breast disorder? Do you think it has spread, or simply reoccurred in other areas of the breast? Is pain normal? I worry about it becoming malignant also. See answer
