Thanks for your post. As Jill1998 says, the breast pain you are experiencing now could be related to the trauma you experienced several months ago.
Whilst Having breast pain doesn’t increase your risk of breast cancer we encourage everyone to be breast aware. Being breast aware means getting to know what your breasts look and feel like normally (for you). It’s good to hear that you are seeing your GP to have the pain checked.
You may be interested in our mini guide, Taking care of your breasts. This pocket sized picture leaflet describes a number of breast changes to look and feel for; a change could be anything that is not usual for you.
Do call our free, confidential Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

Ana, I'm so sorry to hear about your breast trauma. Many years ago I was kicked very hard in the breast by a man who attacked me. It was painful for a long time afterwards but did no lasting damage. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019 (not connected to the previous trauma) and it wasn't painful. However, I agree with others here who are advising you to see a gp. Please make an appointment so your breast can be examined (at the very least a doctor can put your mind at rest)
Take care xx
I can sympathise but my cancer didn’t cause any pain so not sure it is an indication of cancer. You could phone the nurses there is a number on here. They are available from 9 tomorrow morning
Ana ,if you have had an injury prior to getting pain in your breast it's very likely this is at the route of your pain rather than cancer but please get it checked out that's the only way you can put your mind at rest .
