This is interesting. When I was in my 20's I had high prolactin levels and my breasts were similar to those during pregnancy -- I was not pregnant. I think it was a result of birth control pills. When I stopped taking them my hormones were unbalanced - it took many months for periods to resume. I think that might have had something to do with my BC at age 47.

Interesting rrs as I also took oral bc pills for many years. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 49. I have no idea what my hormone levels were but I certainly had swollen tender breasts during PMS. Joann
