I am new to the forum and hope someone can help. I am 44 years old and have had a total hysterectomy. I am therefore in surgical menopause. Hot flushes, moodiness etc. I am also high risk cancer, having annual mammograms. Here is my problem: I have been for my annual mammogram on the 29th Jan this year, all clear. Two weeks later started getting a burning aching pain in left breast, shoulder and underarm. And more recently the pain waking me up. I have been to GP she referred me back to the breast clinic. Just been today to the breast clinic and was told I would not need another mammogram as I have just recently had one. So was given a breast exam by the consultant and was told that no lumps where found and to just take paracetamol and watch my diet. My question is, is this type of pain normal for menopausal women?
