Breast Pain

Breast Pain

Breast pain, or mammalgia, is terms used when a person has pain within their breasts. Sometimes the reasons behind breast pain are breastfeeding, large breasts that are heavy, cysts, tumors, to cancer as well as in general hormones that a woman has during a monthly menstral cycle may trigger breasts to become sore and painful.

About Breast Pain

Mastodynia, mastalgia (from the Greek masto-, breast and algos, pain) or mammalgia is the medical symptom of breast pain. Pain can range from minor discomfort to severely incapacitating pain. Many women are more worried about a possible cancer risk than about the pain[citation needed]. Breast pain during lactation or after weaning is not included into this definition but usually classified as breast engorgement or mastitis.
