Answer

Explaining to the patient that no instance of Mondor disease has reportedly preceded or eventuated in breast cancer may be beneficial. However, patients with a history of Mondor disease should have periodic breast examinations, mammography, and additional tests searching for cancer elsewhere.

For patient education resources, see the Circulatory Problems Center and Cancer and Tumors Center, as well as Phlebitis, Breast Cancer, and Breast Self-Exam.
