Breast pain

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi Ladies!

Do any of you get breast pain during your period that moves into your arm or shoulder on that same side of your breast? I had a mamo done last week and thankfully the results were normal. At the time of my mamo I was due to come on my period so I don't know if it is still tender from all that squishing from the machine.

    Yes I do hun. Always in the left one as I have some small cysts in that one. Pain can go under and down the arm and spread into shoulder blade. X

    Oh I am so pleased I have found this site. I am suffering just like you guys but was really panicking. I also get breast pain and like some of you arm and shoulder as well. It's good to hear I am not alone and think I will be using this site a lot. Will go to the DR but feel better now. Like one of the replies I gave a cyst as well so do feel reassured its symptoms now. Thanks so much

    I also get left side only breast pain that includes my left ribs, chest bones, shoulder and shoulder blade. Sometimes it seems like it starts in the shoulder and neck and radiates to my chest bone and breast. Other times I feel it mainly in my breast. I had a mammogram and 2 ultrasounds and nothing was found. When I have acupuncture done on my neck and upper back the pain goes away for a while so the pain may originate from irritated tendons or nerves in my neck or shoulder that radiates to other connected tendons or nerves around the breast. Either way, it always concerns me!

      I been having pain in my right breast on and off for quite a long time. I had a cyst drained from this breast over 20 yrs ago,and have had 5 routine mammograms since, which all have been fine! I have just received my next mammogram appointment for the 1st Dec and im panicking now that this pain could be something more serious, although i always check myself, and have not found any

      lumps.Reading your message has made me feel not so anxious!!

      I have another breast ultrasound tomorrow and my yearly mammo in December. I get both mammos and ultrasounds because I have small but dense breasts and it is harder to spot things with just a mammo when you have dense breasts. I feel safer getting both plus the ultrsound does not give off radiation.

      Just an update. I had another ultrasound yesterday because I still have this left side breast pain. He couldn't find anything wrong but he did say if the pain continues or gets worse we would move on to a breast MRI, which you have to fight tooth and nail to get insurance to pay for. All the pressure and rubbing from the ultrasound probe and his hand has made my breast hurt a lot today. Ugh.

      In a way its good news that he couldn't find anything wrong! but you still got the pain which need to be resolved.If they still can't find anything after your mammogram in December,then i would insist on having a MRI scan.
