Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
This is Dr. Bonilla. I understand your concerns.
Do you have any redness? Any fevers? How old are you? Are you sexually active?
The symptoms you had are likely from hormonal changes related to your period. It is a common side effect that is related to changes in hormonal levels. The symptoms are likely to improve and resolve in the next few days. Let me know if you have any other questions.
The other possibility is mastitis but without redness, secretion or fevers is less likely. Do you have any lumps or mass?
A mass is an increased amount of tissue in the area. For now you should wait for a week. If the symptoms don't improve you should see your PCP for a full assessment. Hormonal changes can produce symptoms in one or both breast. Let me know if you have any other questions.

It's a very sensitive area. Repetitive friction and hormonal changes can cause the pain. For now you can use ibuprofen every 12 hours and warm compresses for the next 2-3 days.
Please leave a positive rating.
Cancer usually present with redness and secretion. It's unlikely to present with pain as the unique symptom. If your symptoms don't improve in 1 week you should see your PCP. Your PCP can order an ultrasound if the symptoms persist.
Those symptoms are not related to the tenderness you have. If your symptoms don't improve in 1 week you should see your PCP.
