Pain in breast
jsniemann posted:
I am just curious if I should be concerned. A couple of days ago, my left breast started hurting as if it is bruised but I do not see any type of discoloration. I am able to wear a bra without it hurting but any other pressure on it hurts. Is this something to be concerned about or could it just be bruising that can not be seen. I do have a 2 year old which results in a lot of accidental jabs to the breast. Thanks for any comments anyone may have.

Do you happen to grow hair in that area? I get hair growth in some spots of my breasts, and when I have an ingrown hair it will at times feel like how you are explaining. Could that be possible?

I get pain in my right breast a lot, and I have had tests done to make sure that there was nothing wrong. I do have fibrocystic breasts, and they tend to hurt a lot sometimes. My doctor recommended that I take Evening Primrose Oil, and this has helped me tremendously with the pain. I would definitely talk with your doctor and rule out any issues, but maybe try the Evening Primrose Oil and see if that helps.

Take care and good luck!

I do not think that is the cause as I really do not grow much hair in that area. Thank you for the suggestion though.

Is it your whole breast that hurts or just a portion of it? I might try the oil to see if it does anything. Thanks!

See your doctor if possible to be on the safe side.
