Left breast pain causes

Common Questions and Answers about Left breast pain causes


Avatar n tn Breast discomfort is rarely associated with breast cancer but can be due to many causes. I don't know of any breast concern that has anything to do with the size of your breast ... large or small. My best advice would be to see a Dr. for a clinical breast exam and perhaps some type of imagery (Ultrasound or Mammogram) to determine the cause of this discomfort.
Avatar n tn I have a pain in my left breast, my arm and my back. My pain in the left breast first began one morning. That night I was sleeping wearing a bra, and the wire was poking out of my bra and digging into my skin. Also, when I checked the breast there was a red mark on it. The pain was there for almost 2-3 days, after that every thing was normal, the mark was gone and I didn’t feel pain any more.
Avatar f tn Your Mum is quite right--the most common and logical causes of breast pain are hormonal. Here's a web site with a lot of good information regarding breast pain: http://www.imaginis.com/breast-health/breast-pain. I think you'll find it helpful. I would still recommend getting it checked out by a doctor, however, just to be sure. It's what I'd do with my daughter. Better to be safe than sorry, I think.
Avatar f tn Doctor , I am feeling a pain in the bottom of the left breast the pain is not continuous and when I touches the pain areaait seemed to be across the bone located beneath the breast.
Avatar n tn suddenly pain started in my left breast, from middle of the breast to nipple.my uterus already removed 2 years before. I am 50 years old. There is no lump in breast. no boil or redness on skin. What is the reason?
Avatar f tn Now my main concern is that today I noticed my left breast larger than my right, I feel burning pain and it also feels heavy. When I touch my left breast it feels hard and i might have a lump. I am about to start my period next week or so. I noticed mild breast pain yesterday but didn’t feel my breast heavy, I usually get tender breast before my period so It didn’t concern me that my left breast felt in pain.
Avatar f tn When I breathe deeply, I feel quite sharp pain in the back of my left lung/side and a smaller amount of pain in the front of my left side just below my heart. I am a 19yr old female and I dont smoke or drink, although I have lived my life around a smoker. This pain started last night randomly and came literally out of nowhere, it hurts when I change position of my left arm but its not muscle strain as I havent done anything strenuous to my body.
Avatar f tn Three years ago, while pregnant with my daughter I started to feel pain under my left rib cage. The docker thought it was her feet brushing against my ribs. Three years later, I am still in pain. Now the pain won't go away. I have had every test under the sun done. Endoscopy, colonoscopy, upper gi, stress test, heart ultra sound, EKG, five other types of ultrasounds ranging from uterus to spleen to gallbladder. I have had chest x rays too. Recently the pain is so bad sometimes it wakes me.
Avatar f tn I'm 47 yrs. old, have had a complete hysterectomy 10 yrs ago and have had saline implants for 17 yrs. The passed 3 months I've had breast pain on the left side, mostly upper quadrant and under my left arm. Also burning pain on the right mid area of my left brest. It is sometimes very sharp pain in that area. My breast often feels heavy, but that seems to come and go.
Avatar f tn Most of the causes are benign and include anything from hormonal fluctuations, physical trauma (i.e. Injury to the breast that causes pain and/or bruising) hormone replacement therapy and lymphatic blockage. Increase in breast density does however, increase the risk of breast cancer so certainly follow up with your breast surgeon and he/she will be able to advise you if further tests are necessary or simple monitoring is in order.

Avatar n tn I started having breast pain on the left side while nursing my second child.My breast seemed to not be expressing the milk well--just one or two streams. I did all the treatments for clogged milk ducts/mastitis, but nothing really helped. The pain would come and go, but my breast never expressed like it had with my first baby. My left breast became noticably larger than my right. I thought the pain and swelling would go away after I stopped nursing/pumping.
Avatar f tn This is my first post and I am writing with alot of concern. My issue started 2 weeks ago when I had severe pain in left arm and breast, mostly in the chest bone. It was extremely painful and I had to visit ER. Doctor said I am having muscular pain and it should get better with rest and medication. It got better for sometime but started again. Now the situation is that one day I have pain in my arm, neck, upper back, shoulder and breast on the right side and next day on the left side.
Avatar n tn I have a pain under my left armpit and shoulder when used , i also have slight breast pain in the left breast and my nipple is somewhat tender, i have had a hysterrectomy .
Avatar m tn approximately 15% of women require treatment. Breast pain is not normally associated with breast cancer, but the causes for this pain could be many, including pectoral muscle injury that can happen with certain exercises or arm overuse.It's a good thing that your friend is scheduled to see her doctor next week and I am hoping that all will be just fine. Best wishes to both of you.
Avatar f tn Hi, If you haven’t noticed any abnormal features on breast self-examination like a breast lump, nipple discharge or skin changes, I would doubt that the pain you are describing is associated to breast cancer. The pain in your breast could be due to many benign causes like injury to the breast tissue, a pulled muscle, a pinched nerve, Costochondritis which is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone and it could also be caused by an improper posture.

487548 tn?1215542137 Hi I've recently been getting this sharp pain right below my left breast and its sharp and happens when im not really doing anything i dont know what it is maybe my stomach
Avatar f tn 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. When you had your hyterectomy were your ovaries removed as well? If not you could still be having some hormone fluctuations if you are pre-menopausal.
Avatar n tn I have been having pain in my left breast, only when i touch it though in the upper area. Its only been hurting for 2 days now and I can feel that spot being hard.... Dont really kno what to do help!!
721102 tn?1230565133 I have a small mass in my left breast, deep under and to the left. For several months I had periodic sharp pains and eventually made a drs appt. She sent me for testing and I had an ultrasound done with no negative results. The staff at the clinic would not do a mamogram because of my age (30) despite my medical history (cervical cancer, 2 years ago, and a cancerous mole removed between my breasts, 10+ years ago) and family history (numerous types of cancer including breast).
Avatar f tn I noticed today that my left breast above the nipple closer to my arm pit, and sore down my side was sore today I touch it and it hurts not oh my god hurts but its sore my daughter lays her head on e and it hurts I don't feel a lump. I am 34 I just finished my menstrual cycle but have never had this feeling before what can it be from? should I be worried? its not red or swollen either.
Avatar f tn It causes shoulder pain and pain all in my left breast i cant touch it or lie down on my front because the pressure causes pain. Also lying on my left side causes problems and lying flat but once it starts no position is comfortable. It radiates out into my ribs. Just below and just behind the bottom of my left breast i have the feeling that something is popping threw my ribs i have to hold this in to laugh cough etc as its scary and painful.
Avatar f tn I've recently been experiencing a dull pain over my left breast, fullness in chest and throat, heart palpatations, pain in the left shoulder and excessive belching. Although I have had many tests done, everything has pretty much come back normal. The only thing that the doctors could come up with was Superventricular Tachycardia. I think it may be more, but I'm not sure. Despite medications the symptoms still have not gone away. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Getting left rib cage pain under breast i asked my doctor they said it mmust be the baby but doesn't feel like it is any suggestions on how to calm the pain
