Left Breast Pain

I have pain in the left breast and the left shoulder blade area.  I have to hear what is said about "did I injure myself".  However, I have had some breast pain in the past and have found it associated with weight gain.  It seams my breasts are fuller and the pain may be associated with that.  Just an idea and want to know if the same correlation is found in others.  Thanks.

Dear donnaberland:  Benign breast pain is extremely common and has many causes.  Most breast cancer is not painful.  As our specialty is breast cancer, we have no particular expertise in benign breast pain and so would not be aware of a correlation such as the one you mention.
