What is Mondor’s disease?
Mondor’s disease is an inflammation of the veins under the skin of the breast and chest wall, and is also known as superficial thrombophlebitis.
It affects both men and women but there are many more cases in women.
Mondor’s disease is a benign condition and is quite rare. It can affect any of the veins in the breast, but most commonly affects the thoracoepigastric vein under the nipple.

A breast self-examination (BSE) involves checking your breasts to help detect breast problems or changes. Many breast problems are first discovered by women themselves, often by accident. Breast lumps can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Breast cancer can occur at any age, though it is most common in women older than 50.
Many experts believe that the harms of breast self-examination outweigh the benefits. Others consider BSE an option for women. Talk with your doctor about breast self-examination.

Performing a monthly breast self-test exam should be a priority among women of child-bearing age. The habit is one that should continue well into old age. Breast self-tests can help save your life. If you are still menstruating, you should make sure that you test your breasts at the same time of the month each and every month. Most experts agree that it is wise to wait until after your period has passed to perform the exam as hormone fluctuations can cause changes in the breast tissue.
