Tenderness and Pain in Breasts

Hi,
I am a 25 year old girl and since last few months I am feeling a lot of pain in both of breasts. It peaks as I reach towards my periods. The pain then subsides for few days and again comes back. It hurts to touch them and I can't  lie on my stomach. I am also feeling a lump in the bottom of my right breast.

Please tell me the reason behind it.

Dear Megs722:  Many women have lumpy painful breasts that are worse during certain times of the menstrual cycle.  This is called cyclical pain.  Breast Cancer is not usually associated with breast pain.  If you feel a discrete lump, it should be evaluated by your doctor.  You may also want to discuss your discomfort with a medical breast specialist who may help with some pain management strategies.
