Lichen Sclerosis et Atrophesis

Does anyone else have this disease?
I was diagonosed with this this past summer.
But have noticed this pigmantated area
on my breast for a few years now.
Does this have anything to do with my
hormones. Please help its really sore and raw.
Is this cancerous please help I'm really scared.
thanks in advance, K.S.

Lichen Sclerosis et Atrophesis

K.S. I really can't help much here. I searched for information but this is all I could find.
Lichen sclerosis is a skin disorder involving the external genitalia (vulva) and area around the anus. It's most common after menopause. Its cause is not known. The involved skin may become thin and easily injured and may turn whitish in color. Yeast or bacterial infections may complicate the problem but respond to appropriate treatment. There also is an increased risk that the affected skin will undergo a malignant change. Periodic examination by a physician is therefore advisable so that biopsy of suspicious areas may be done if needed. Treatment usually is with topical creams that contain either testosterone, progesterone or corticosteroids.
You mentioned an area of discoloration on your breast, so I don't know if this is the same condition. I strongly advise you to talk to your physician about this disorder. Let him/her know how frightened you are. Best wishes,
