I want to be sure of something

Hi, I'm 28 years old and it has been more than two months I've been having breast pain and I'm going to see my oncologist soon for checkup. I realized I feel pain on two spots on my left breast and one on my right breast. The two spots I feel pain on the left one I feel like somethings their but I can't tell very much because I have fibrocystic breasts. I want to know since I feel something is there on where I feel pain what do you think it could be? I'm just guessing it might be a cyst but the pain feels very weird and it feels tight. My concern is I never had such pain like this before and my doctor usually recommends for pain that I take Motrin but I haven't had any relief in this matter. Usually it does help me. I'd like to get your opinion about this. Please let me know soon.

Thank You,

Yes, Melissa. Pain is a symptom of Fibrocystic breasts, which are multiple cysts on your breasts.

I see okay thanks. I'm just wondering can a cyst be painful? I will mention all this to my doctor soon.

Hi Melissa, 

We ask that you keep any questions that are similar to previously posted ones in the same thread, please..Thanks.

Fibrocycstic breasts are painful, lumpy, breasts so this is likely the reason why you have multiple painful lumps. Tylenol, advil, and motrin can all be taken to help with the pain. Unfortunately, the only person that can tell you if this is the reason for your lump is your doctor. Please refer to him for any follow up questions on your lump since he is the only person that can give you a diagnosis.

Best Wishes,
