Breast pain

Hi everyone I hope you are all well. Im a bit worried and not sure what to do. I had breast cancer 2 and a half years ago, 3 tumours removed, chemo and radio therapy. I had my ovaries removed two months ago which all went well. I am now experiencing pain in the same breast I had the cancer. Even though under my arm is nearly numb I can feel the pain there aswell. It feels like Iv been punched. I had a mammogram in June and all was fine. I don’t want to bother the doctors if Im worrying for nothing. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks Paula xxxx

Hi Paula,

I notice noone has replied yet to your query. I have not got pain the the same breast - don’t have a breast there now ! but for the past few months I have started to get pains in my ‘good’ remaining breast. There are intermittent and seem to be in different areas. My oncologist has checked my breast and said there is nothing to worry about. Also went to the GP recently who couldn’t feel anything.

I am still worried about this as I am not on any anti oestrogens at the moment so am a bit worried like you.

Hopefully someone will post some good news about this!


did you have reconstruction?
