Common Questions and Answers about Breast pain underwire

breast

Avatar n tn I am noticing soreness under the breast where the underwire is. I have heard that underwires aren't good for women and I've always dismissed it. Is there any concern or is this a myth? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/258554'>sore rib under breast-any ideas</a>.
1489762 tn?1288283548 I read a discussion forum on exactly what has happened to me. I have worn an underwire bra for years but I have a severe case of osteoporosis. I lift a lot of heavy boxes and bins in my job and sometime on Friday (I don't recall anything traumatic happening) I must have lifted one too many because I started to have some tenderness on the rib bone just below my left breast.
Avatar n tn About a week ago I got a new bra and the day I started wearing it, I developed some pain in the rib/s right under my left breast (directly where the underwire lies). I thought I might just need to adjust to the new bra so I wore it all week, despite the pain. I finally gave up on it and haven't worn a bra for three days because of the pain. It is painful to touch those areas and also painful to cough, laugh, breath, sneeze, etc.
Avatar f tn Wearing a sports bra to bed I've heard can help at night. If underwire doesn't hurt you, then it should be fine. It caused me pain in the very beginning, do I'm just going to avoid them, but it might be because I'm smaller, only a c cup.
Avatar f tn I have intense pain under my arm on the side of my body where my bra band reaches toward my breast and were the underwire would be to hold up my breast. It is extremely painful. Lately this pain has been waking me up at nigh. It reaches from my back near the bottom of my shoulder blade to the breast area. It is on my left side. than you, ifit This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/258318'>limp in arm pit??</a>.
Avatar f tn During pregnancy, completely normal. I always massage my boobs and use cold packs on my nipples.
Avatar n tn I don't want to scare you...I work in the medical profession also and know how scary it can be. However, please do not assume everything is ok just because breast cancer doesn't "usually" cause pain. I had pain in my right breast probably for about 6 months before I had it checked out. I thought it was my underwire bra too, then cysts. I did not initially feel a lump either, so I did not think it was cancer.
Avatar n tn I also have pain in my back behind my breast. So, I'm not convinced that it's only my breast. I have been taking Evening Primrose Oil, Vitamin E & A. I cut back drastically on my caffeine intake. I drink caffeine-free drinks/coffee..but they are still aching. I really feel like this is a hormonal thing possibly with arthritis. I have had recent gallbladder problems too.
Avatar n tn For the last month and a half I have been having a strange pain under my armpits and the side of my left breast. It started as an itching and burning sensation, but has turned into pain which spread to both sides. I have no lumps under my arms on in my breasts that I can feel. I am overweight and have heavy breasts, so I have always worn an underwire bra. In december I started going to the gym 4-5 days a week and working with a trainer one day a week.
Avatar f tn Hi I am 18 years old and very concerned about this pain I m having in my right breast, it almost feels like it is underneath the breast but the whole area on the right side of my chest is hurting for the past 2 days. I m quite concerned about this, I am not pregnant or in a sexual relationship, so I m wondering if I could have breast cancer at this stage in my life. Pleas do answer, I m quite unhappy and in pain right now, so please do tell me what is it and what should I do about it! Thank you.
Avatar f tn When I touch it, It feels like a sore muscle would with a slight stabbing pain. My breast does appear slightly puffy where the pain is, but no discoloration. My OB has felt around the area and can't find anything suspicious. She notices that the area is slightly swollen and has suggested that it's just inflammed glands or lymph nodes. I'm just concerned because the pain hasn't subsided and has been there for a couple of weeks.

Avatar n tn 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 m tn mainly under the breasts. More in her left breast. She doesn't feel any pain. We will defenetly go see a doctor but do you have any ideas?
Avatar f tn I had a green bruise about one inch in size show up on the lower breast. There is no pain with it. I don't remember hitting it. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn For the past year or two i have had severe aching pain in my left breast/rib area. I noticed a mass/swelling in the bottom area of my left breast, which runs along the line of your underwire. This is kinda behind the breast. It feels like it could be attached to the rib? It is very sore to touch and i have had it checked before by ultrasound. I was told it is mussle tissue.
Avatar n tn Hi there Mom968, Sorry to hear you are going through this but I think I can give you some advice as I just spent the day with my mom after having surgery to remove breast tissue. Just some history here....my mom was 43 when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she had a lumpectomy, no further treatment. 6 years ago, she had another tumor, had another lumpectomy, and followed with radiation, no chemo. This time around, they found calcifications which are calcium deposits...
Avatar n tn For about the last three years, I have been experiencing pain on the same side as the surgery. The pain is under the breast, in the breast, and in the rib cage area. Sometimes my breast is painful. My oncologist and internist have taken chest x-rays and mammograms-all negative. Certain movements aggravate the condition. I do breast exams almost daily, and I haven't noticed any change in my breast. My internist suggested that I stop wearing underwire bras.
Avatar f tn Hi, I've had the tingling, numbness, tenderness, pain and sore nipple on my left breast for about 3+ years. The symptoms come and go but can last for days when I have them. It's very frustrating and uncomfortable. Now when I lay down on my stomach and lean on my elbows I feel like something is pulling and the numbing sensation like if blood is not circulating. The numbness goes up my armpit and down my arm.Different Drs have done breast exams and all said no lumps felt.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm so upset! My sister in law has a open sore on her breast. She told me it was not even hurting. Its near in her nipple. And it has a purulentfluid. She had been to Health Clinic and they make a bloodtest untill now we have no result. I'mafraid its a cancer. The staff told her to visit another clinic for xray. Can someone explain me if this is cancer or just an infections? I know she has to cunsult a specialist but the problem is they can't afford. I'm afraid if this is cancer.
Avatar n tn He then fixed it on the spot. And the pain has diminished. My pain consisted of pain around the left breast, both armpits, center spine, center of the chest, rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, pain down the left arm. I hope this can help.
Avatar f tn I had it on for about 2 hours while we sat at the dining room table and played cards and ate dinner, and I started getting really uncomfortable in the bra, and thought I had a little pain underneath my right breast. After his friends left, when I took off the bra, I DEFINITELY was in pain! I happened to walk by the bathroom mirror and saw a large bruise (mostly purple shades) underneath my right breast. The bone underneath is sore, too.
Avatar n tn Hi One year ago I started having pain on my left side, under my left breast, behind the front of my rib cage. Also under my L shoulder blade. As there is nothing of anatomical importance really there, except for maybe the esophagus, my doctor prescribed Protonix for an ulcer and said that the intercostal area (tissue between ribs) was probably inflamed. No results. It's no better. Lately, I can barely wear a bra.
Avatar n tn HELLO EVERYONE, RECENTLY IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT THERE IS A BODY ODOR LIKE SMELL WHICH IS COMING FROM MY BREAST. I DO HAVE A BIGGER CHEST, BUT I AM VERY CLEAN NONE THE LESS. I ASSUMED THAT THIS ODOR MAY BE PRESENT DUE THE FACT THAT IT IS THE SUMMER AND I TEND TO SWEAT MORE, BUT I NOTICED IT AGAIN ON FRIDAY AT WORK AND MY BODY WAS COMPLETELY DRY. I HAD TWO OF MY FRIENDS AT WORK, ONE MY BOSS, SMELL THE AREA AND THEY CONFIRMED. MY QUESTIONS ARE: 1.
