I want to consult like this, why are my breasts on the right side of the left and right 2 days??? I am 33 years old and I am still breastfeeding my 11 month old child???
Complaints of pain in the breast are usually an inflammation. This condition is known as mastitis. The causes are varied, the most common are injuries to the breast area due to breastfeeding.
Besides mastitis, other causes of breast pain:
· The influence of the menstrual cycle (normal)
· Non-cancerous lumps, if there are lumps
An abscess or collection of pus in the breast
· Muscle injury
The best treatment for cases of breast pain is adjusted to the cause found. Check with your doctor directly to find out the cause in question. If signs of inflammation/infection are found, the treatment is antibiotics and painkillers. In addition, here are some tips to reduce complaints of breast pain:
