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 all the things you mentioned could cause pain to be felt in the breast. Typically, cancer in the breast is a painless process. So it's not likely to be serious. But you are definitely doing the right thing in having it checked. That's the only way to know for sure.
Avatar n tn I am 47 and had lumpectomy and node dissection last April for cancer in left breast. Radiation followed, no chemo. Am on tamoxifen. Estrogen and neu positive. 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?
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.
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 Now if you are noticing pain on one side in a specific spot, you may have a blocked duct. It sounds like though you are just having overall tenderness. Overall tenderness is almost always hormone related. As always, if its bothering you a lot, contact your doctor.
1909177 tn?1322244430 I mentioned to my gynecologist today at my yearly exam that I have had constant breast pain. They ache and ate tender to the touch and it does not go away. Sometimes there is sharp pain in small areas on one breast below the areola. When she did the breast exam she found a lump in the same area under the areola. And is now sending me to have an ultrasound. I guess she chose that method because my breast are small and won't work with an ordinary mammogram.
Avatar n tn I ignored the pain, did not find the cancer until I had my yearly mammogram a year later,it had already become invasive in a years time. It was exactly in the same area that I was having the pain in. It was a burning nagging pain.. So I don't believe that you should always go by the notion that there is no pain with cancer. Anywhere in your body. One time I was having a feeling of swelling under my arm, and I know now that, that also was a signal I should have listened to.
Avatar f tn I have this sharp pain in my left breast almost between breast and armpit. I have had it for a week now, it comes and goes and is especially sharp and painful when i lie on my left side. if my breast moves, it is painful. I am on the pill and have never had children. We have no cancer in the family. I have been on the pill for 7 years and NEVER experienced such discomfort in my breast. It feels like i am being stabbed. Sometimes it is around for a while, sometimes, just for a few seconds.
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 f tn It is often described as a sharp, stubbing pain that occurs in one area of a breast. Occasionally, noncyclic pain may be caused by a" fibroadenoma" or a"cysts".(Both benign findings) If the cause of noncyclic pain can be identified, treating the cause may relieve the pain. Breast pain can get worse with changes in your hormone levels or changes in the medicines you are perhaps taking. Stress can also affect breast pain..
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing pain in my right nipple. I have never had children, therefore I have never breast fed. There has been no trauma that would cause pain. I also have "thickening" of the tissue (under my nipples to the bottom of breast) in both breast. This is beginning to concern me because the pain is so intense. I am 34 years old.
1267942 tn?1270319437 I am 28 years old and have 3 children i breast fed all 2 for at least a few weeks.. how ever my youngest is almost 4. My left brest on the inside a lil out from my nipple hurts! It feels like a bruise, but there isnt a bruse . however there is a white line where it hurts looks like i have layed on something .. but this line doesnt disappear. i dont feel any lumps that isnt in the other breast. wondering what this could be?
Avatar n tn (decreased pressure?) Letdown reflex more tingly and painful in affected breast. Pain worsening; used to come and go, but has been continuous for past 6 wks. Continuous dull pain in upper left quadrant just entering into armpit with feeling of fullness there. Am 41 y.o. with 7 children; first born at age 18. Breastfed 6 of them for total of 13 years and continuing. No family history of reproductive cancers.
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 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 Not much pain thankfully, but I feel these bumps or balls in my right breast and when I squeeze them they Crunch! Then a weird sensation and mild little sharp pains follow...not to mention both breasts itch from the inside terribly and my right nipple, coming from directly inside!!..there is no sign of rash or any marks to explain the itch is very bizarre and incredibly doctor couldn't help...I'm very worried.
Avatar n tn The more likely scenario is that you pulled something, although some people do have breast pain in the absence of an injury. Most cancer is not painful. However, if you are concerned or if this persists, you should have it checked out by your doctor.
Avatar n tn Hi, An indentation or dimple on the breast does not always mean breast cancer but it should be investigated as the formation of a lump can sometimes pull the skin into the breast causing the dimple. Indentation can of course occur from benign causes,like a cysts or a fibroadenoma which can cause the pain you are describing.Also keep in mind that breast cancer is rarely associated with pain,but you are doing the right thing by having your breasts evaluated by a Doctor. Best wishes and good luck!
Avatar n tn Hi there. I am a 26 year old female with 3 small children and i am currently 24 weeks pregnant with number 4. I had a mammo in october the month before i got pregnant for a hard lump (which after a mammo, US and visit with the surgeon turned out to be a RIB BONE!
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 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.
