Breast pain can be due to many things, most of which are nothing to be concerned about. Since this problem has been present for a year I would think you have ck.d with your Dr., but if not why not do that. It's always a good idea to see your Dr. for an examination when anything new or different is noticed concerning the breast.    Regards ....
