Breast pain children

Common Questions and Answers about Breast pain children


3145189 tn?1343161021 The only medication that has ever helped me with severe cramping is naproxen. I'm not sure if you can take that if you're breast feeding. Breast feeding can also make the pain worse because your uterus contracts as you're nursing. The first week that I nursed, I kept a heating pad on my stomach. Talk to your doctor before the baby is born, and maybe they can prescribe something so you're prepared. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn Breast pain can have many causes. without any additional symptoms it wouldn't be cause for concern. This may be related to the hormone levels in your body. If you are terribly concerned you might ck. with your Dr. about this. Regards ....
Avatar n tn they cause shoulder pain on the left, which is the side that I have breast pain on. Its also been 2 weeks since my period, but wouldn't that cause pain in both breasts not just one? I have 6 children , so of course I have fear about the pain being from something worse. I have no lumps, & no apparent swelling, but I am seing my DR. on wed. Meanwhile, I have a few days here to be paranoid, which I am. Thanks for any feedback!
Avatar n tn Have now developed great pain in left breast. Swollen, red and hard, though very sensitive. Went to hospital. Given strong pain meds - no help and strong antiobiotics - no help. Chest xray showed shadow in left lung - undiagnosed. I am in considerable pain and it is not getting better after one week. Should I be concerned? What should I do next? I am pre-menopausal but have had early hysterectomy. Did not give birth to any children, so never breast fed.
Avatar m tn Hi, Breast pain can be due to many benign causes. Usually the pain occurs due to hormonal fluctuations as it also happens during menstrual cycle and particularly if you are on Hormone Replacement therapy. I don’t think you should worry about cancer since this disease is almost never associated with pain,especially when both breasts are involved. Many women actually find relief, when it comes to breast pain, when they cut back on how much caffeine they consume (chocolate, coffee colas).
Avatar n tn Katie whats up????? I came across this because i am having breast pain. I didnt realize the us sells this over the counter or i would have stocked up!!! Good to know. Didnt make it to calgary last year but i should be going soon.
Avatar n tn Dear new_lady: It is not uncommon for women to have breast pain at certain times in the menstrual cycle. If the pain is severe or you are concerned, you might bring this to the attention of your doctor.
1909177 tn?1322244430 Also I have not had any injury to my breast. But also coinciding with breast pain and lump, other lymph nodes hav been swollen. Also my mother had breast cancer at age 30 which is also a bit young, all she needed was a lumpectomy. My doctor Got real concerned when she heard my mother had breast cancer. Can anyone tell me my chances of this being breast cancer? or could this just be some sort of cyst or fibroids? I go next week for ultrasound, how long before I know results?
Avatar n tn I also noticed that my left breast was hanging a lower than my right breast. The pain is mainly in my left breast..This really concerned me and when i mentioned it to my obgyn at my 6 week check up he didnt do anything about this problem...He didnt even check my breast. Not too happy about this but what else can i do ????? Is this normal ???

Avatar m tn I sometimes experience sharp pain under my left breast, leaving me gasping for air and burping a lot. What could be the cause of that, if its gas what causes it? Im a 34 year old woman and have no children.
Avatar f tn I have 4 children previous to this pregnancy, and am 38yrs old. I have never had this much breast pain..must mean I am about to be the milk machine I am only 13weeks and fear the rest of the pregnancy if they remain this sore.
Avatar n tn My wife started getting this pain in the left breast, started two to three days ago. And stats that it is in the breast and not above, below, near the arm pit, in the neck or upper back. Not even in the right breast, just the left. She's taking over the counter drugs like tylnol, motrin, etc.. but doesn't really work, a hot compress that helps for a little bit she says. Are there any suggestions????
Avatar n tn Hi, a question. I'm 35, no children, in good health. My left breast is noticably larger than the right, probably slightly less than a cup size(left almost b, right a). I never really noticed this difference until a few years ago, maybe 5 or so. I think it may be due to breasts getting a little larger, gaining a few (10 or so) pounds over the past few years. My breasts seemed to be much smaller 10 years ago.
Avatar f tn I don't understand why for the first time in my life I have this pain and it is only in one breast/one area of my breast. I told the doctor that my Mom has had 8 non-cancerous cycsts removed, and both of her Grandmothers had cancerous cycsts - one lost her breasts and one died. But, I was sent home with basically a - deal with it. Being that my husband is a soldier - our insurance won't cover a second opinion. So, do you have one, PLEASE?
Avatar f tn I saw my primary earlier this week for abnormal vaginal discharge/blood, severe pelvic pain, nausea, and breast pain. She did an exam (not cool at all), and felt a lump on the outside of my left breast, and ordered a bilateral breast U/S "just to be sure it is just a cyst". Also, the pain and discharge are due to a yeast infection, which I am on antibiotics for. I am a 29, almost 30 (eww) year old woman. No children. Not ever sexually active.
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old female. i have been experiencing a sharp pain inside my right breast for a couple of days. it is especially "active" with movement and stretching of the breast. It feels like a "crunch" I can hear and feel. This feels like my nipple is attached somehow inside and is being torn away from its attachment with the movement. There are also a couple of bumps present in the area which are raised but with indented centers.
Avatar n tn I have searing breast pain and noticed a bit of a concave indention under my right breast. I have a spot that is very tender there and have shooting pains throughout the day. I have scheduled an appointment for the 20th of Feb. Has anyone else had this before without it being cancer? What could cause this? This discussion is related to Searing pain in breast.
Avatar n tn I AM NOT a doctor but can tell you that my doctor has told me that pain is not a symptom of breast cancer. I don't know that this is true or if it's true for everyone, but please just give them a call to ease your mind. Worrying and stress can add to the symptoms of fibrcystic breasts, just like anything else. So get the reassurance you need. Sounds like you have a great doctor taking all precautions. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn Dear Bball1, Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood. It is not usually associated with breast cancer. Breast pain is sometimes associated with hormonal variations and is then called cyclical breast pain. Noncyclical breast pain does not seem to be linked to hormonal variations and is often localized to one area of the breast tissue. Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast.
Avatar n tn Hi heather1527, I started using Progesterone cream BECAUSE of breast pain, so I know it didn't cause my pain. I got pregnant w/ baby #7 right away, and so continued on the cream. The breast pain (left only) continued, but did not worsen. Now, that baby is almost 11 mos, and the pain is wearing on me. I feel a little relief during nursing, possibly since pressure is alleviated. I, too, worry about breast cancer. I've not gone for a check or ultrasound - I'm too afraid!
Avatar f tn However, my current cycle seems milder than normal, but I'm feeling a sharp pain in my right breast. I did a google search (I know, google can't REALLY solve every question or puzzle) but it did bring me here. I did note that on some of the pages it brought up in my search that breast pain, from soreness to sharp pains, can coincide with a woman's cycle and is fairly common.
Avatar n tn 5 months ago I had an ultrasound of the same area of the breast where this pain started because i felt a tiny lump there. the lump doesn't seem to have grown, and nothing was seen on the ultrasound (in fact, the radiologist couldn't even feel the lump although i definitely can). she noted ductal ecstasia but said this wasn't unusual since i'm breastfeeding. i am 31 with a history of breast cancer in my family (maternal grandmother at a young age).
Avatar f tn Hello, I have been experiecing pain mainly at the nipple and areola. My whole breast has been sore and is very swollen. I had an ultrasound and mammo. A mass was found under my nipple. The doctor said it was not an absess or cyst. I am not pregnant and I have never nursed any of my children. I am currently 31 years old. Why was I prescribed antibiotics instead of just doing a biopsy?
Avatar n tn I have two children, a boy who is 9 and a daughter who is 7. Neither of them eat normally and never have. Both were breast fed for 18 months and both were difficult nursers and had problems moving to baby foods. Neither have any allergies. They are both considered completely normal except for being below the 5th percentile in weight. She's in the 53rd in height, he's in the 60th.
