Common Questions and Answers about Sharp pain in left breast nipple


Off and on for about 6 months now i have a sharp[feels like needles] in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. It is on the outer side around my nipple, it hurts worse with pressure. I had a hysterectomy 20 years ago[when i was 29] for per-cancer in my cervix and my urethritis. help please!!!!
But recently I have developed a constant sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. It feels it's deep inside, like an ache. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> is incredibly tender as well. Any ideas as to what may be the cause?
I have had a sharp stabbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> for a couple of months. I went to the DR.and she said that she thought it was mastitis. This was about 2 months ago. It comes and goes. It was at its worse last night, waking me up. And lasting off and on through the night. I think I feel a oblong lump at the left base of my breast, but not sure if it is or not. I feel a tiny lump under my left arm more so to the left, which is very tender. I am 45, and a smoker.
oops, forgot to mention that oddly enough I have now begun experiencing sharp pains in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> of my other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> one. I'm nervous to bring it up with my doctor because I'm treated like such a worrywart about the other breast lump, and am wondering if I'm right to be vigilant or if I can just let everything be.
For the last few days ive been getting this sharp throbbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the side of my left breast & i have no idea what it may be from. It will wake me up in the middle of the night, it can just come out of nowhere and start throbbing. Do anyone ever have any of these problems ? It is related to maybe my milk starting to form ?
Hi, I'm about to turn 30 in October and have recently had sharp stinging pain in my lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> only happens in the shower. I don't feel any lumps, but the stinging <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> feels general yet specific, so it's kind of hard to pinpoint or describe. It's almost beneath the breast tissue, with slight bruising feeling around the armpit and rib cage. Sometimes around the lower nipple. Why would this only be happeing in the shower? Why would I have it at all? First felt it about 3 weeks ago.
I have had a stingy burning like pain under the nipple around the areola for quite some time. This week I developed a very sharp stinging <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that feels deep inside the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. I examined and found that there is a bruising type of sign under the nipple and an indentation. The stinging is very localized and very painful. My left breast is much larger than the right, always has been and when I am sitting at a table, the breast pushing against it, I can feel a aching there.
i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>; one inch below my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> feels sharp when i press down gently.. why is that? i noticed it this morning when i turned to lay on my stomach but was uncomfortable because of my breast the left side just happens to have a sharp pain feeling when it's being touch i see no bruise or anything there an no lump so i'm like wthat is wrong now...

My maternal aunt was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> for about 2 months. My doctor felt some cysts and sent me for my annual mammo. The mammo says no skin thickening or nipple retraction. Dense fibroglandular changes seen bilaterally. Small intramammary lymph nodes seen in the superior aspect of the left breast. Stable asymmetric fibroglandular tissue in the superior aspect of the right breast.
For the past 2 weeks, I have had a sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>, which comes and goes. My familt doctor thinks it is mild neuropathy. I've been reading about peripheral nerve neuropathy, but I dont have the same symptoms... Any thoughts on what else it could be? Or am I just being paranoid?
Since I'd never noticed it before, and only seen it happen a few times I am a little concerned. I occasionally have sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, sometimes just enough to make me cringe and sometimes so bad that I have to hold my breathe because breathing moves my chest and causes worse pain. But I have had breast pain that comes and goes ever since I started my period when I was 12, so it is not new. I am now 17. Should I be worried that something could be wrong?
im 23 and been suffering from really sore nipples, they seem to hurt whenever i knock them or if i were to push my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> inwards both are equally as sore but my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> seems to be getting a sharp pain when i breath!! i always seem to have tender breasts ever since i can rememeber. i check them for lumps but havent noticed a change.
Hi Paulio, I too am experiencing changes in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> and noticed that I'd never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> before in the lumpy structures that are new to the breast. I'm 48 yrs old, am in surgical menopause since 2005, not due to cancer but due to other chronic conditions that were adding up to trouble. My uterus, ovaries, tubes and cervix were removed. I could not for the life of me handle the sudden menopause. so my gyno put me on the estrogen patch. I've been on this now since 2005 mind you.
All day yesterday and so far this morning I have been having sharp pains go through my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>. Is this do to my milk trying to come in or should I call the doctor about it? I go back to him on Monday.
I don't see an answer but you're not alone. I woke up last night and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> was in agonizing burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, but today it's fine. This has happened before, maybe once or twice a year. I would like to know the cause.
They felt it was not anthing to worry about. About six months ago, I developed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> moved to my left upper quardrant side. Went to two doctors , well one was a clinic and said that it prob a cyst. Now the pain is so intense, that it hurts under my arm and down my arm and my arm feels stiff and am having joint pain.
Hi I'm 33 years old and I've been having pain between my breasts (actually it's toward my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>) for a few weeks. It's not sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, it's more like discomfort and I can feel the pain when I press. My OB dr said that area is not considered breast and it could be muscle pain. There's no lump or anything. I've been having irregular period lately so I'm not sure it has anything to do with it.
i have very severe fatigue, brain foginess, i know where i am but it feels like i am not here most of the time. every day it feel like the end. now i have very sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in nipples. mostly my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span>. bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my back. can someone answer?
so i am not out of shape by any means. Here lately I've been having sharp pains under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> area; exactly in the middle between my left nipple and the bottom of my rib cage. Sometimes its randomly throughout the day. It is at worst when i eat large meals and/or when I lay down with food in my stomach. I've been having these pains for nearly a month now.
I have logged on for the first time Noticed a number of comments re problems with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> armpit(lump) and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. I have had the same problem for about two years. Of recent weeks the breast pain has increased. Last week I was sent for an Ultra Sound, await the results. Over the years I have surgery for the removal of benign lumps and in 1982 had a reduction. With all of these adhesions it was difficult to do a self examination so had regular mamograms.All showed no problems.
all the times before I would start have a sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> coming from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> and have antibiotics for would clear up and come back about six months after.did'nt have it for 2 years,then came back with revengance.the odour was stronger from my nipple.started paining then it turned to burning awful.had to have emergency operation.also I was all I can surley say ask your doctor to refer you to have a scan.
I am a bit concerned that I have had an itchy left nipple for the last 3 months now, and on top of that I get a pain in my breast as well, quite sharp and very painful.......
About a month and a half ago, out of the blue, I started having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. I literally woke up with it one morning, and since then it has hardy gone away. Sometimes it is aching, sometimes it feels a little sharp, but I can never pinpoint it to an exact location. Sometimes it goes into my armpit, and other times it feels like it goes towards my shoulder. Still, other times it seems to be at the base of the breast, while other times it's in the nipple area or above.
Within a day or two after i developed a sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my ribs and a small lump above my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>. The nipples hruts when i touch it, almost like it's sore. I thought it would go away but Sometimes the rib pain was unbearable and i was growing concerned about the nipple lump. I went to urgent care in my town, they took some x-rays and i went for an ultrasound. Both showed nothing. The doctor there gave me a prescription for 800mg ibpreoufen.
Been having off/on pain in both breasts but 80% in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> for about year and a half. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> started late 2007. I took a mammogram in Feb 2008 and came out clear. pain subsided for a few months and surfaced again about October 2008. I have taken series of mammo scans which also were judged normal. About this time, I started having premenopausal symptoms, hot flashes, break out in sweat suddenly, headaches, and the breast pain. I took another mammogram Feb2009.
saline implants and the past month or 2 I have had this sudden sharp/shooting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>, between the arm pit and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>...I have this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> for the past 2 months. I am just worried and afraid to see my doctor..does anyone else have the same problem?
to prevent the sore from getting infected, you can do a saline soak. dissolve some salt in a cup of warm water and dip your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span> in to it, or put some of the solution on to it. the final step is to prevent it from happening again. if it happened from pumping, your best bet is to make sure that you use a little bit of olive oil on the base of your nipple while you pump. it reduces the friction. also, turn down the setting.
