Dear fanta: If you are having constant pain, it may be worth an examination. There are many causes of breast pain. Most breast cancer is not painful.
thank you so much for such a fast reply. I will follow your advice and get it checked. Thanks again.
I too am experiencing constant pain under my right arm, and the entire right breast. Earlier this week I had chest xray and mammogram. Results came back normal today - but I am still in pain - not sure what my next step will be. It has been over 3 years since my cancer treatment - I do not want to live in constant pain. I also have no sensitivity in the nipple area. the breast is now lumpy from the treatments so it's hard to tell if a lump is suspicious or not. Let me know what you find out - and I will do the same. Good luck to you.
thank you for your input. I still have to schedule an appt. Good luck and I will let you know what I find out. It seems you have had cancer before, I hope you can find what is causing your pain. This is a first for me.
Hi thought I'd let you know what I found out. Mine seems to be something called costocondritis. The doctor described it as an inflammation related to the ribs in that area. That anti-inflammatory meds should help and it is nothing to worry about. I looked up this condition and it certainly seems like what I am experiencing. Good luck to you.
So glad you and your doctor were able to determine the cause of your pain (and that it's not cancer)! I have another appointment scheduled for next monday with a surgeon. Best of luck to ya!
