Drs keep telling me it's nothing

I am 45 and has always had a healthy immune system. I have had this stabbing, blunt pain in my right breast, on the upper and far right side. I've seen 2 drs who have both said there's no lumps, it's nothing. I feel this pain, when it hits it hurts. I know pain is telling me that something is different and wrong. I have had 3 children, my last one 18 yrs ago, so I have a high tolerance for pain but this is a Blunt, sharp pain that has me to the Brink of crying. My grandmother had a double mastectomy, my mom had fybroid tumors and my aunt breast cancer. My mom passed from gallbladder cancer, my grandma Collin cancer. I need good advice please.

Hello Angie

Thank you for writing and I'm sorry you're in this kind of pain, with doctors unwilling to help you further.

A woman doesn't need lumps and bumps to prove there is a problem.

Have you had any scans taken? An ultrasound or other scanning device? This needs to be done to see if there are any kind of lumps not felt by the human hand or any other kind of issues (bones/muscles/ligaments) going on in this area.
You are within your rights to request scans - I suggest you do. Please keep us posted and don't give up.
