Pain in left breast for around a month now.

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hey, my name is Hayley. I'm 19 years old, soon to be 20. I suffer with terrible Health Anxiety, and not on medications for it. For the past four weeks I have had alot of pain in my left breast around the sides, the bottom and under my collar bone. I've tried taking ibuprofen, naproxen and asprin for it but nothing is helping. It's a dull, achy pain and my breast feels very full and also it looks a bit swollen. With my health anxiety ofcourse I'm thinking I'm having heart problems or breast cancer... I just want to rule out those two. I don't feel any lumps or knots at all. It also causes my left side and back to hurt. Can anyone tell me the cause of this? Thanks.
