Question: Has anyone out there been diagnosed with Mondor's Disease? I was just curious to see how many other people have had this, also known as Mondor's cord. Its when there is a clot in the superficial epigastric wein of the breast. You don't feel a lump, but instead you feel a cord-like strcuture on your breast exam. It usually comes after surgery or trauma to the breast, but I got it after breastfeeding. Its not harmful, and has since gone away. Anyone els had this problem?

Answer: No, I've never been diagnosed with this, but have the link to a site that may help you find even more information. The link is at:
