For the past week I have noticed a burning sensation in my right breast. It starts directly under my armpit on the side of my breast. There is no noticible lump, depression, color or hardening, but I have a lot of breast cysts and cancer on both sides of my family so I am scared to death. I am only 28, have large breasts and am overweight. It's not exactly pain..more of a burning sensation that I noticed upon waking but now feel sometimes through out the day. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Dear Purpleraes: Breast cancer is not usually painful. Other women with histories of cysts have written describing burning pain. I don't know if there is a relationship. In any case, it may be worth while to see a breast specialist to determine the cause and treat your pain.
Please don't panic! 29 years ago I had a Burning pain in my right breast and had a surgical biopsy. It was a cyst which my ob-gyn thought was the problem to begin with but I also had a hysterectomy for carcinoma in situ so the biopsy was neccessary. Don't overreact like I did. Burning normally is a good symptom for a benign diagnosis. Lots of luck! Jjoni
