You guys are so wonderful.  I really appreciate the support.  Between my 50th & 51st years I grew from a medium C to a full D.  I nursed 3 kids but that was in my twenties.  I now have LCIS.  I just wondered if anyone heard of this growth pattern before!

Suze----by any chance, did you gain any weight?  I know I've  gotten larger because of weight gain from menopause. Women generally say when they lose weight, they lose it in the boobs first!

I gained some weight but not that much.  I still got my period until I started the Tamoxifin.  I am 56 and started at 9.

I've gradually grown from an AA in my late teens to a B in my 50s. Hasn't been related to weight changes for me. I think my growth is more related to my estrogen use starting in my 30s. I continued them until about 2 years before my LCIS diagnosis at age 51.

Wow  I really think that is it.  I've been on the pill on and off for 30 some years.  I never had a problem with it.  I used it in later years  for PMS.  It really helped those foggy days before my period.  Now I have LCIS.  My daughters have been talking about the estrogen in plastic water bottles too.

Thanx

I think estrogens are pretty well known to cause breast enlargement.

Gynecomastia: pathomechanisms and treatment strategies.

Mathur R, Braunstein GD.
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center-UCLA School of Medicine, Los Angeles, California, USA.
Gynecomastia is common in adolescents and adults, and reflects an underlying imbalance in hormonal physiology in which there is an increase in estrogen action relative to androgen action at the breast tissue level. Most patients have persistent pubertal gynecomastia or breast glandular enlargement from medications, age-related reduction in testicular function, or idiopathic causes. Gynecomastia must be differentiated from pseudogynecomastia due to increased breast adipose tissue, as well as from breast carcinoma. The evaluation of the causes of gynecomastia can be accomplished through history, physical examination and a few laboratory tests. Painful gynecomastia of recent onset may respond to antiestrogen therapy. Surgical removal is the mainstay for long-standing gynecomastia or glandular enlargement that is unresponsive to medical therapy.

Hope this helps, Suze.
