This is fresh fig season, and it is a good idea to spend a week, and a baker’s dozen of figs to protect your breasts from lumps. Poulticing the breasts with fresh figs can make a dramatic difference in your ability to see problems that might need attention, without the distraction of fibrocystic breast conditions.
Figs are rich in pharmacologically active latex and can draw out toxins and stimulate the lymphatic system. They are cited in the Biblical book of Isaiah where Hezekiah was covered with boils and was cured by poulticing with figs. I have seen a hot red lump the size of an egg disappear within two weeks of poulticing, and the doctor was unable to find it for biopsy even with an x-ray. I suggest doing it preventatively for a week each year.
