I posted on here a few times about breast pain because back in January My left breast was sore to even touch (I kept touching it all the time as i was really anxious so made it worse) the pain came from the bottom of my breast, it was a lot bigger than my right breast. I got it examined by a female doctor she was lovely and she said that she couldn't feel any thing that wasn't normal also said breast pain wasn't associated with breast cancer and if there were any changes come back and see her this made me feel slightly better about it all.

I waited for my periods to come and go to see how it was it was slightly better I'm currently on my period now but 2 weeks before my periods came both my breast were agony running downs stairs or going over speed bumps in the car they were sore, but the pain in my left breast has got better its not tender when I'm doing anything it is only sore sore when I push one finger on that area it's a small sharp pain but goes away when I stop touching it.

I haven't had time to go to the doctor yet so I seen on someone elses discussion a free number to call if you have any concerns about your breasts when I called the woman's on the phone she was ok to start with she said it is less likely to be breast cancer because of my age then i told her I had anxiety then she said that I couldn't be thinking about it to much and you need to get your anxiety/health anxiety sorted first and is said yes I know I just wanted advice see if some one can reassure me or see what I could do she said no one can reassure you no matter who you speak to if you have any concerns go back to your doctor she was very rude and didn't help at all I only wanted to speak to someone about it

    Dear Sarah I don't know how old you are but if you are worried have an ultra sound or if you are over 45 a mammogram to rest your mind. I have anxiety and I know how you feel. I constantly worry about breast cancer. With anxiety the pain will feel worse everything seems worse. I go to have my breast checked every 2 months by my doctor. I also go every 2 years to a breast specialist that arranges s mammogram and U/S. He told me to have evening primrose oil tablets and that helps with tenderness and pain . Let us know how you go but remember to no worry to much as that make it seem worse.

      Hi rosedee iam 25 I spoke with the doctor and she said that she could send me for one but she doesn't think I need one and said it would be weeks before o go one as its not urgent. My breast isn't tender it's only a slight sharp pain when I press one area, I am currently looking into counselling as j know I need my anxiety sorted it's stopping me doing a lot of things Thanks for the reply.

    Hi Sarah-1991. I'm 20 years old and I experience the same pain in my left boob when I press down in a certain spot. My nipple is also kind of shaped weird but my bf said its always been like that ( I never noticed). Anyways, I have really bad anxiety and am freaking out about it. I'm trying to schedule a breast exam but I'm finding it difficult as I have no insurance. If you find out what's going on I'd love for you to share it with me to ease my mind! Thanks a bunch!

      Hi CripinLocke

      I haven't noticed the pain in my breast until recently. I have really bad anxiety in general but it's more focused on my health to be honest I have been back and forth to the doctors in March/Arpil about numerous things I have had my self really worked up and getting really up set to the doctors, she has referred me to cbt counselling which I start the end of May anyway everything I ah e been to the doctors for recently has gone and I know not worried then I started feeling my breast for that pain again and I felt it sad I started freaking out I can't get an appointment at the doctors because they are closed today.

      I have been googling I know I shouldn't and it's has scared me even more sad

      how have you been feeling?
