Benign breast nodules
I have benign breast nodules on both breasts and i have been using birth control pills for almost 6 months now, can i still continue using the pill or i have to stop it? how can the birth control pills particularly the estrogen and progesterone combination pills affect the nodules? will it worsen the nodules or it`s just okay to continue taking the contraceptive.
If the nodules are definitely benign, there should be no problem with the birth control pills. Please continue to follow closely with your doctor while taking the pills.
