There are many possible causes, which include a breast cyst, mammary duct ectasia, breast trauma, intraductal pappilomas, medication and fibroadenomas

can cancer cause this

Dr B :

yes, it can, usually it is not the cause though

Dr B :

Yes, it may clear up on its own, but you will never know what caused it, so it is better to have it evaluated by a doctor

Dr B :

I sometimes have pain between my breast and shoulder. should I have this checked soon or can it wait until my next doctors appointment in 3 months

Dr B :

You should have it checked out soon, 3 months is too long to wait
