How To Deal With Breast Pain?
Hello. My name is Eni. I have felt pain in the breast since my child is 5 years old, it feels sick like a blocked breast milk. According to the doctor, what’s the cause?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Breast pain can be caused by many possibilities. In general the causes are divided into 2, cyclic pain and non-cyclic pain. Cyclic pain usually occurs in both breasts and occurs before the menstrual period until the end of the menstrual period. This pain can also be accompanied by the appearance of a lump in the breast or breast swollen and felt hard. This pain will disappear when menstruation is complete and can reappear before the menstrual period.
Non-cyclic pain there are many possible causes, including:
use of hormonal contraception
use of a bra that is not suitable size
trauma or impact to the breast
benign or malignant breast tumor
other causes such as costochondritis, injury to the chest muscles or ribs, etc.
If you feel non-cyclic breast pain, you should do a doctor's examination so that you can examine it directly on your breast. The following are some things you can do:
compress your breasts with warm compresses
do gentle massage on your breast
use the bra with the appropriate size
avoid using a bra with a wire for a while until the breasts are no longer painful
consumption of pain relievers such as paracetamol when pain is very annoying
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
