If you find that your breasts suddenly have an icy cold feeling, the thought of cancer may come to mind.
Breast cancer can present with symptoms other than the classic lump.
Can Cancer Cause an Icy Coldness in a Breast?
“Icy cold feeling can mean poor circulation in the breasts,” says Mylaine Riobe, MD, founder of Riobe Institute of Integrative Medicine. Dr. Riobe, board certified in OB/GYN and integrative medicine, is the author of “The Answer to Cancer.”
“If a women eats cold or raw foods or beverages excessively this can cause a drop in body temperature leading to a feeling of cold,” continues Dr. Riobe.
“Usually consuming warmer, well cooked foods and beverages will help. Icy cold feeling is not usually a sign of cancer.
“However, a thorough breast exam and proper breast screening should be completed.”
Dr. Riobe has helped thousands of patients overcome difficult illnesses by addressing root causes, not just masking symptoms. She has over 15 years’ experience using integrative techniques to treat diverse patients.
