Hello Muttia Firmansyah, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Pain that is felt in the breast as you experience it can be caused by various things. It could be that you are experiencing due to hormonal influences due to the release of injection contraception, or it could also be caused by other conditions such as:
Inflammation of the breast / mastitis. Mastitis can occur due to infection in the breast. This condition is more often found in nursing mothers, but it does not rule out women who are not breastfeeding can experience mastitis. In this case, the sufferer may feel pain and swelling in the breast, feel warm or reddish breasts, and also fever.
Breast abscess. If the infection of the breast is not handled properly, a collection of pus can form which causes the breast to swell and symptoms get worse.
Lump in the breast. Lumps in the breast itself can be caused by many things such as fibroadenoma mammae (FAM) which is a benign tumor in the breast, breast cysts (lumps due to fluid-filled sacs), and so forth.
Breast cancer. Theories regarding the causes of breast cancer itself are still being developed. Disorders of the hormone estrogen are said to be one of the things that increases the risk of breast cancer. In addition to pain, the sufferer may experience lumps or sores on the breast that are felt to be getting bigger and bigger, discharge other than breast milk from the nipple, and weight loss for no apparent reason. Perform regular breast self-examination every month to detect breast cancer early. Also read: BSE examination (check your own breasts)
Injury or trauma to the breast tissue or the muscles and bones around it. Try to remember again is there a history of trauma or collisions around the breast. Pain due to this will be felt worse when you move or the part around the breast is pressed and improved in a resting position.
Because of the many possible causes that can cause complaints of pain in the breast, it would be better if you find out the exact cause, so that the therapy given can be more optimal. If the pain is caused by hormonal disorders due to the release of birth control or for example before menstruation, the pain can disappear within a few weeks to months after the release of birth control or several days after menstruation.
If the pain does not go away, accompanied by a wound in the breast, or the pain is felt to be more severe and disturbing, consult your doctor immediately so that the doctor can dig further your history of the disease and can do a direct examination.
Meanwhile, use a bra that is comfortable and in accordance with breast size, avoid using clothes that are too tight in advance, and compress the breast with warm water. If it still hurts, you can take pain relievers such as Paracetamol according to recommended use.
So, hopefully it helps and hopefully you get well soon. Regards.
