Having painful, sore or tender breasts can cause a lot of anxiety. Breast pain is very common in women of all ages. There are different types of breast pain, and these are explained in our information.
Breast pain can be treated; however it’s important to find out what the cause is. It can be useful to keep a pain chart to see if there’s any pattern to your pain and you will find a pain chart in our breast pain booklet pages 12-13.
It’s good that you’ve been to see your GP. It’s natural to feel anxious, GPs follow guidance when deciding how quickly a person should be seen depending on their symptoms.
since around the end of April, start of may I started to get a sharp pain in my right breast it came and went and didnt happen often and it still doesnt happen often but it started to worry me a little. As well as this I have a sore chest wall, and a burning feeling on my chest and sort of going to under my armpit? And sometimes I get a sore to touch right breast and other times it is fine to touch, or there can be some pain when I move without a bra on, but with a bra on it's fine. have been to the gp 3 times now, one said infection , one said torn pectoral muscle and one finally referred me to the breast clinic, but I have bee waiting for ever and my anxiety is through the roof.
