Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

There are various different kinds of breast pain. Breast pain is also called mastalgia. Mastalgia is breast pain. There are two types of mastalgia, cyclical and noncyclic. Cyclical breast pain is most often associated with menstrual periods. Noncyclic pain does not vary with the menstrual cycle.

Mastalgia can be caused by:

Hormonal changes associated with the menstrual cycle
Trauma to the breast
Arthritis in the chest cavity and neck

Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include:

Ruling Out Cancer
Worry of cancer can be the main concern associated with mastalgia. Performing a mammogram to rule out cancer as a cause can provide reassurance.

Topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) may reduce the pain associated with mastalgia.

Anon, lumps need to be checked by a doctor. Please schedule an appointment.
