Hi,

What is your age? What other symptoms are you having?

Usually an infective process like mastitis; or trauma to the site or breast abscess or cystic disease of the breast are painful lesions.

You could have pain in your breast associated with hormonal changes linked to your menstrual cycle .

You could try some OTC pain relief medications, warm compresses and see if it helps with your symptoms.

Just follow up with your physician for a detailed clinical evaluation and that should put your mind at ease.

I think you should go ahead with an ultrasound or mammogram if your physician advises, so that a confirmed diagnosed can be got.

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