What works for breast pain? I had constant pain in one of my breasts, it was underneath and on the outer side but only hurt if pressed/leant on etc. It was constant for 2-3 months and then suddenly dissappeared as if it wasn't there. I had 3 different Dr's and a specialist feel both of them and no lumps or anything at all and the specialist said no further action but now the pain is back again. It's on the same breast again but the pain doesn't seem related to my period at all. With a family history of breast cancer, I'm constantly scared about i.
and yes i have obviously been to my drs but there less then useful and keep fobbing me off

Moved to Health for you

I'm not too sure about this issue myself, having never experienced it, but I would maybe try a different doctor. Even if it's nothing serious, they should at least give an indication to what is going on and suggest ways to help you. Do you have an OB/GYN? It might be worth seeing if they'd be willing to take a look

Sounds like after seeing so many drs the cause is probably not anything serious like cancer. You might want to have one more sit down with a dr to discuss your concerns and also ask about pain relief. I assume any exam will have the same result as the last ones with no lumps, but after that be sure to ask what could be causing the pain since it isn't that.

I've been told that starflower oil or evening primrose are good for breast pain when I saw a doctor once. I would also suggest you get a proper bra fitting to see if that helps. Poor fitting bras are a really common cause of breast pain and a proper fitting can be like magic. You might also find that it helps to see an osteopath. Posture can affect your whole body, including your breasts and an osteopath can look at things like that to make sure they aren't an issue and give you advice on how to help the pain. You can also use standard pain relief techniques like warmth and regular painkillers and google to see what others suggest. Give a few things a go and see what helps you best.

Do you take the ocp? You say the doctors are fobbing you off, what did you expect them to do for you? Sounds like sinister pathology has been excluded by a breast specialist so it's about managing your symptoms now. The poster above has given good advice. Try also avoiding caffeine and if you smoke, stop. Which painkillers have you tried? NSAIDs like ibuprofen are good for this.

You should be able to find it in a pharmacy. Just go ask at the counter to save yourself looking everywhere. Might be able to get it on amazon or something too.
Can just be the one with various reasons so don't worry. Try a few things and wait a couple of weeks to see if there's any improvement. I think there is also a breast pain clinic you can go to, but I'm not sure how. I guess you'd have to google it. My first stop would be debenhams for a bra fitting though cos it's going to be the cheapest and hopefully most permanent solution. You can tell them you are having pain and they can suggest the best type of bra as well as size.

My mother had them once and they were just benign cysts, not unlike those in your earlobes from time to time. But definitely get them scanned.

I've got this too, breast pain on one breast and only in a certain place. Only notice if I lean on it or bang it a certain way. Comes more times than it goes and doesn't seem to be related to the pill or periods.
I haven't been to the doctors about it yet but probably will do soon. Have you tried radian b gel? Seems to work for me
