I woke up yesterday, and my left breast was swollen, but my right breast wasn't. The nipples are sore to touch, especially on my left side. I can see a big difference between the two breasts, but my husband doesn't seem to think the difference is all that obvious. It is enough to freak me out, however! Does anyone know if having one breast swell is normal? Is it a reaction to the hcg shot or the progesterone? Or, could this be a pregnancy 9oh, please, please)? Any thoughts are appreciated.

I'm small 34a and have a scar maybe 3-4 inches. and after I had my surgery (8/2007) I also saw a large vein plus very swollen and tender to the touch. It did go away. even though every now and then where that scar is.. causes me a little pain but I had a follow up with the breast sugeon and everything is normal.
Hi, I'm 19 years old and about a year ago i noticed a little bump above my left nipple, i procrastinated on going to see a doctor. A couple months later it grew and covered the whole top of my left breast, then it started on my right one. Now, it spread through out both my breasts. So, now, the only time that they are not sore or swollen is when i am on my period, then about 3 days after my period they swell up again until my next cycle.
My left breast is way more swollen and sore then my right one. My period is due in about 6 days... I dont always have sore breast before my period... sometimes I do and sometimes I dont. However, this month both breast started to become sore about 7dpo and now the left one is wayyyy worse than the right. It is noticable how much bigger it is when my shirt is off. I tested today which I know is probably too early. I figured I was out this month because the bf and I were both sick during o days.

regarding sore left underarm, I had/have the exact same pain. Like you say - not really sore - just uncomfortable and always seems to be "there". I have a small nodule on the right lobe of my thyroid but FNA is scheduled for a few days from now. I thought it might be cardiac related but that has been eliminated as a possibility. Interestingly, just knowing that it isn't cardiac has had a significantly relieving impact.
I have been going for follow up mamograms and ulstrasounds on my left breast every six months for over two years. At each appointment, it is discovered that the calcifications in my left breast continue to increase and there is one area of concern that is always circled on my films. I now have an appointment for a surgicial consultation as a 2nd set of hands, eyes and opinion. What can I expect and if this doctor is not worried, should I be?
Not sure what this could be, also since yesterday, my left breast under the arm and near breast on left side is quite sore and tender. I have also experienced too much saliva about the same time the itch started, not sure if its related but I feel my tongues swollen and burnt trying to constantly swallow excessive saliva. Anyone have any ideas or similar experience as to what these issues may be. Thank you.
He noticed a lump above my nipple on my left breast and the swelling underneath my breast. I was sent over for a CT angiogram and scheduled a mammagram for next Tuesday. He spoke of the possibility of mastitis being the cause for the swelling and placed me on both viral and bacterial medication. From what I read mastitis usually only occurs in breasfeeding women. I am 13 yrs past having children and do not breasfeed.

I have had problems also with sore, swollen breasts ever since I was told I had a complex ovarian cyst that ruptured 7 weeks ago. Now the doct thinks I might have endometriosis, but won't know for sure until he does laparoscopy on me next week.

Doctor said that the lymph nodes did seem swollen, but likely due to an infection and nothing to worry about. The pain has gone now though and just waiting for the test results just to confirm everything is OK. She did say I was ovulating and that everything else seemed fine. So we should get a move on a start trying for a baby.....

However, I recently experienced some awkwardness or slight pain in the left breast, mainly around the ICD - towards the armpit and towards the center of the breast. I have scheduled all sorts of check ups - regarding the ICD and my gyneocologist, but until then I would greatly appreciate some input if this pain may be normal, due to the ICD and not something breast related. Also, how do the ICD and arrhythmia medications affect pregnancy?
