I am 75 years old, female, no other symptoms, no swelling, no redness, going without a bra aggravates it, sever times a day I feel the burning sensation, no other illness, have not consulted with doctor or had any test because did not know if necessary, I take pain meds for bad back and for thyroid and ulcerated stomach.

No call please

This is really stupid. Please just forget my question and keep the $5 because I will pay no more. I can go to my doctor cheaper than talking to you on here. I just wanted to know if it was dangerous and needed to be seen by a doctor. I need to do a mamo anyway.

It is not necessary to call.
It is an automated response.
Some customers want it.
It is website generated.
Please wait, I am writing your answer.
Thank you for your patience.

My goodness. How long does it take to write an answer??

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Burning pain in a single breast can occur due to a few factors.
It can be an inflammation, infection.
But those would cause swelling, redness & would not last so long.
There can be other issues like nerve impingement, costochondritis.
Tumor or growth would cause swelling too.
You are not having any.
At your age, heart issues like angina, reflux can also cause a burning sensation.
You are right, you need an examination in person.
Doctor would then decide about tests like ultrasound, EKG, mammo etc.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

Wish you healthy life.

Well I don't have swelling or redness and it just comes and goes. If I put my bra on, it seems to go away or I don't notice it anyway. I will get the mamo.
Thanks.

Ok. Thanks

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
