hello
i have an odd burning pain in the lower left side of my left breast. it only happens when something moves it a certain way or pressure is put on it, like taking off my shoulder bag off across my body, any pressure applied straight to it or holding my dog to that side. its not like normal cyclical pain, its a burning sensation thats enough to stop me in my tracks. there are no lumps or changes in skin texture or color. i dont have children, i'm not pregnant, breastfeeding or menstrating. i did have my nipples peirced several years ago, but the hole is completely closed. any insight you could give would be much appreciated.
thanks,
mary

Hi,
Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.
As per your description,possible differential diagnosis may include Costochondritis, Gastroesophageal reflux, Muscle spasm, Nerve impingement.
So further a clinical examination by your family doctor and X-ray Chest should be done in your case.
Physical therapy can be advised to you.
Gentle massage can be helpful.

Hello,
These all conditions can cause pain in lower left quadrant to your nipple.
So as you are suffering for last few weeks so it's good to see your family doctor as well.
