This is likely to be mastalgia. This can be cyclical or non cyclical. Cyclical comes with the specific period of time while non cyclical pain of the breast is random. Unlike cyclical mastalgia, there is not usually any precipitating factor. Resolution many times is spontaneous. Following is helpful;

1) A well-fitting sports brassiere

2) Relaxation therapy if anxiety is associated

3) Decrease the caffeine intake

4) A low fat diet has been proven to result in a reduction in hormones such as prolactin, believed to be implemented in the cause of mastalgia.

5) Exercise also lowers circulating estrogen levels and this may also be another simple lifestyle modification worth considering.

6) Medications; if significant persistent pain danazol, bromocriptine and tamoxifen are the medications worth considering by your doctor.

You may also consider a mammogram or magnetic resonance mammogram (MRM) for the evaluation, especially if the pain is moderate to severe or persists for very long.

Mastalgia is usually benign, and can be associated with following:

a) premenstrual syndrome,

b) fibrocystic breast disease,

c) psychologic disturbance

d) breast cancer (extremely rare).

Chest wall conditions, like Tietzie syndrome, may present as mastalgia. Please read abut it;

Lisuride maleate is a new agent recently studied for the treatment. Vitamin E and evening primrose oil also can help you.

Ok so having no lumps or anything like that, I assume the pain will go away on its own since it's likely associated with my cycle?
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago

Yes, exactly. This would resolve on its own.

Nothing worrisome here.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
