I am a 35 year old female. I have a weird sensation in my left breast near the bone and on my back under my left shoulder bone. The sensation is more a discomfort and not pain. It occurs when I bend over to pick something up off the floor(its like a pulling sensation.) and If I am slumping a bit when I am sitting it can be a bit more sharp. When I do a self breast exam, I can't feel anything out of the ordinary. When I menstruate I can feel something scaping agains my ( I want to call it a breast bone plate, but I am not sure what bone it is.) This feeling has only occurred for about a month. Should I go to a doctor about this? If so, what kind of questions should I ask. Thanks for any insight.
Dear TKlink: Breast cancer is not typically painful. If you are having continued discomfort, you can consider an opinion with your internist. This could be many things, including a pulled muscle, for example.
