Hi there.

Hormonal changes in the body which usually coincides with the menstrual periods can result in these breast changes.  The itching can be due to this, or more commonly from possible dryness on the skin or fungal infections.  I suggest you still undergo screening mammograms yearly so that any abnormalities can be detected early, specially if you feel something abnormal going on with your breasts.  I also suggest you take this to your doctor to have your breasts examined properly, for he may see or feel things that the patient would not notice.  Regards and God bless...
