Hi,

Have you had any mammograms as yet - for screening purposes?

This could be due to various causes including tight clothes, injury or trauma to the site. Do you have any symptoms of GERD?

You could wear lose clothes and take some OTC pain relief medications and see if it helps with your symptoms. Warm compresses would also help.

If the pain still persists, you should consult your doctor for a clinical examination.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Regards.

Hi,

GERD is symptoms of reflux including heartburn, sour eructations , etc.

Have you tried pain relief medications, warm compresses?

You need to consult your doctor, and get a clinical breast examination and mammogram done.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Post us what your doctor advises.

Regards

Hi,

Glad to know that the mammogram has come out to be normal , and that your doctor thinks that this is an infection most probably.
