Hello,
It could be due to a number of causes -
-Infection in the breast tissue
- A condition known as Fibroadenosis where the fibrous tissue in teh breast enlarges . It is a benign condition but the breast can be quite painful. just before menstrual periods .
- It can be due to water retention before the periods.
Breast cancers are not painful.
Please consult an Obgyn fro an examination.
I hope this helps.

Then it is possible that you have an infection in the breast tissue.
A muscle strain is also possible - strain in the muscles under the breast can often cause breast pain.
Please take Ibuprofen 200mg three times a day to control the pain and consult an Obgyn.
I hope this helps.

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.

Hi, I was hospitalised on thursday after waking up after sleeping with a tampon. I immediately after removing it felt dizzy, started vomiting and got a fever (39 degree). I went to the hospital where they found that I had tachycardia (pulse was 130), high infection level etc, and my skin was red like a sunburn. Somewhat low blood pressure (100/60). They gave me antibiotics and fluids, and I felt much better when discharged on saturday. I was called now from the hospital and told that they found Staphylococcus aureus from the vaginal swab.
