  • Elmiron and Breast Cancer

    I'm 23 years old and started taking elmiron in February. I recently discovered a pea sized lump under my right arm and just noticed today that I have a white discharge coming out of my right nipple. I went to see a general surgeon for the lump and he said it is a lymphnode, which brings up 3 different possibilities for what it is, an infection, lymphoma or breast cancer. He said to come back in 3 weeks to see if it's grown at all, or if anything changes to go in and see him earlier. Now that I have the white nipple discharge I am going to see him next week. What I'm wondering is if there is any correlation between elmiron and breast cancer or having IC and having breast cancer.

    Any help would be much appreciated, I'm a kind of worried now.

    Had abdominal pain since I was 12 that started getting much more severe when I entered college. I just got diagnosed in February 2011.

    Elmiron (100mg) 3x/day

    Severe IC, Bladder which holds 300 mg rather than the normal 600 mg, Pelvic Floor Myalgia, Imperforate Hymen (surgery in 2008), Ovarian Cysts

    Heating pad/rice sock, laying down when in pain, rescue IC diet

    I have not heard of any connection at all. I hope what you have turns out to be simple to fix.

    Stay safe
