    My mother suffered from heavy breast pain after attaining her menopause. When it became severe, we conducted a mammogram on which we understood that she was in her initial stage of her breast cancer. She used this medicine to control the fluid discharge through her breast and to alleviate her pain. Still my mother find relief using this medicine.
