Common Questions and Answers about Breast pain treatment

breast

Avatar n tn It completed my six weeks of radiation on 7/3/09. I have developed deep pain in my breast in the last week. I had two surgeries and the pain from recovery was much less than what I am feeling now. I would love to hear an update if things get better for you.
Avatar n tn Are you currently undergoing any form of treatment? The breast pain could be secondary to the late effects of surgery. There are times when patients do complain of having “extra sensitive” postsurgical site, with intense pain elicited on light touch. I’m not sure if this is the same symptom you are experiencing. I would suggest you consult your doctor for evaluation. Good luck.

Avatar f tn Does anyone know what is the next step as far as treatment? What do the doctors first attempt for treatment? I know everyone's case is different but I just wanted to know a little bit more since there isn't much information online. If you have any info please do tell. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Now for over a month before my period, on my period, and after my period I've had breast pain in my left breast. Went to a doctor wasn't really to happy with how I was treated I am 23 years old so of course they gave me the basic answers to being worried about my breast from it could be hormones, or they don't want to do a mammogram because of the exposure to radiation and as well as how breast are dense because I'm young and practically that could cause me harm for no reason.
Avatar n tn I was recently treated for breast cancer in my left breast. DCIS as well as invasive. I finished treatment for chemo in August 2009, finished radiation last week. My questions is, after I finished chemo, my Right breast started getting sore. I checked with my dr. and she said it is probably a swollen gland. I'm 11 weeks out from my chemo and I still have the problem. Is this common, or should I insist on a ultra sound.
Avatar f tn Can you manage fruit/yogurt smoothies, or even stuff like Boost, that can be bought at the store? Some of us practically lived on ice cream through treatment, because it was palatable. Be sure to tell your doctor about this, it’s most likely manageable.
Avatar n tn And be sure to explain what uour pain is related to (breast issues? breast cancer? some surgery or treatment you've had?), what your doctor had recommended, and what you have tried so far.
Avatar n tn I had allot of breat pain so my Med-Oncologist got me up to 3 100mg of Neurontin a day and I got allergic to that as well. After I went off the Neurontin, I didn't have any breast pain for awhile but then after a period of a few months I started to get it back again. Now I take Advil but sometimes it doesn't do anything to help it. What are the chances that I'll be pain free again some day?
Avatar f tn Hi due to maturity it will take pain on both breast. you feel pain on right one only so the right way consult doc.
Avatar f tn Many women actually find relief, when it comes to breast pain, when they cut back on how much caffeine they consume (chocolate,coffee colas). Although breast pain is rarely associated with breast cancer,I would urge you to see a Breast Specialist for a clinical breast exam, including a mammogram, to make sure that there is nothing there to worry about. Best wishes...
Avatar n tn I have been having pain in my right breast - somethings it's a sharp shooting pain and other times it's a dull constant pain. I don't have it everyday, just once in a while. It has been going on for about a year. I do self breast examinations every month and found no lumps. I'm 41 years old and have 2 kids (a 4 1/2 yr old and a 2 1/2 yr old). I breastfed my youngest for a year. I went for a mammogram and it came back normal (thank god).
Avatar n tn You could seek the advice of a breast specialist (a physician who deals with breast problems) to evaluate and help you with the discomfort. Some recommendations for treatment of breast pain involve simple comfort measures such as a supportive or exercise bra, or application of warm or cold packs. Caffeine avoidance, limit salt intake and reduction of dietary fat may also help.
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 f tn Some women complain of breast pain, nipple tenderness and the feeling that their milk is coming in. You might have less symptoms with less hormones. See if you can have the dosage reduced and still have your menopausal symptoms relieved. Just to be safe, it is also a good idea to have your breasts checked again and also have a routine mammogram regularly.
Avatar f tn Try some OTC pain relief medications, breast massage, breast exercises and local application of analgesic for the pain. Do let us know what your doctor tells you. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Dear mitch24, Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood, and 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 f tn My breast has been more firm since surgery and I was told it would soffen up in time. My question is up until yesterday I have had no pain. Now I have pain in the area where the lymph node biopsy was done. I thought it seemed strange I am all of a sudden experiencing pain upon movement of my left arm. Is this normal? Also, I am doing chemo and having been experiencing eye twitching. Is that a side effect of chemo and if so will it go away?
Avatar f tn I am wondering is this may be referred pain rather than actual breast pain. The pain may actually originate in the esophageal or stomach area, or may be a diaphragm pain that is referred to the breast. As you know your breast has absolutely nothing to do with eating and digestion. Is it possible that this pain is actually do to a digestive process. Sometimes a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can produce similar symptoms.
Avatar n tn After all the extensive testing you have had it would be nearly impossible that you could have Breast Cancer that hadn't been discovered. Actually breast pain or discomfort is rarely associated with Breast Cancer. Best of luck in your continued search for answers to your pain. Regards ....
Avatar f tn Fatty acid imbalance, oral contraceptive pills, antidepressants all can cause breast pain. Women with large breasts may have noncyclic breast pain related primarily to the size of their breasts. This type of breast discomfort may be accompanied with neck, shoulder and back pain. Though pregnancy is unlikely since you have your tubes tied but there are very rare chances of failure in any method of contraception and birth control.
Avatar n tn Fatty acid imbalance, oral contraceptive pills, antidepressants all can cause breast pain. Women with large breasts may have noncyclic breast pain related primarily to the size of their breasts. This type of breast discomfort may be accompanied with neck, shoulder and back pain. An ultrasound may be done to evaluate a focused area of pain even if the mammogram appears normal. If there is no abnormality found on mammogram and ultrasound it is unlikely that there is some serious cause involved.
Avatar n tn It's impossible to even speculate as to the cause of the pain you describe but breast cancer rarely causes any pain. Lymph nodes can become enlarged for several reasons ... one is an infection somewhere in the body. If you saw a Dr. and he/she prescribed a medication you certainly should have taken it as ordered. Often an antibiotic is prescribed in similar situations. I would advise you to take the medication as prescribed for the length of time it was prescribed.
Avatar f tn I been getting pain in the left breast on and off from past 3 months ,I saw my gyn a month ago ,had cbe,mammo,ultra done n all normal.my doc attributed the pain to low level of vitamins d and b prescribed vitamins.but from past 20 days my left breast seems bigger than before,..and the pain still comes and goes ...I'm worried sick don't know what to do..
Avatar n tn However, 4 yrs down the line, I stopped it 4 weeks ago, due to severe bone pain (hips, hands and feet) and the pain has gone! I still feel I need protection for at least another year so am seeing a new Oncologist (mine retired last year) soon for evaluation and hope she will prescribe either Femara or Aromasin. All the AI's affect bone density, tamoxifen doesn't and before starting one of these you should have a DEXA bone density scan for a baseline. It is a difficult decision I know.....

Avatar f tn That pain is gone now but in the last 4 weeks I have noticed I have developed breast pain in completely different areas of the breast than where the surgery was done. Wearing a bra tends to make it very tender but going without is not that painfree either. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn please give me any info regarding breast pain. I am having pain on the left that extends at the back. I am 49 on my menopausal stage. I just had my mammogram 3 weeks ago it was normal however there is breast tissue dense.
