Pain or discomfort usually affecting one or both breasts. This is more common between the ages of 15 and 50.Breast Pain is an extremely common problem. In most women, the pain is cyclical, varying in severity in response to the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle. This cyclical pain is usually most severe before menstrual periods and tends to affect both breasts.
Cyclical breast pain affects as many as 1 in 2 women and is commonly a chronic problem. In some women, the pain is severe. Women who experience cyclical breast pain often also have generalized breast lumpiness, which tends to become worse before a menstrual period. The pain may be aggravated by stress and by caffeine in certain drinks.
In some women, breast pain is not related to menstruation. Muscle strain may result in non-cyclical breast pain. Rarely, pain is caused by a breast cyst or breast cancer. Breast pain may also be due to an acute problem, such as an infection that causes inflammation of the breast tissue or engorgement of the breast with milk after childbirth. Some times, the cause of breast pain is not known. If you have large breasts, you are more likely to suffer from both cyclical and non-cyclical breast pain.
