I'm 25 years old and I've been experiencing sharp stabbing pains in my left breast and my left breast itches. I know that some women experience breast tenderness befort their period but my pain seems to be all the time not just before my period. Should I be concerned?
Dear Shanell: Breast pain is common and there are many possible explanations. Most breast cancer is not painful. If you are concerned, you might consider an opinion with your doctor or with a breast specialist.
