Hi there.

The negative physical examination findings are indeed reassuring.  However, if you can't still put your mind at ease, you may want to discuss with your doctors regarding additional imaging tests such as mammogram or ultrasound to assess the areas affected.  Mammogram may cause some form of discomfort, while ultrasound is generally done comfortably.  Also, observe for any other changes aside from the pain such as lumping, presence of nodule, or breast discharge and report such to your doctor.

Regards.
