Good afternoon, thank you in advance for the question.
The causes of breast pain can vary, a physical examination and related medical interview are required to be able to determine the exact cause, possibly breast pain including:
- the menstrual cycle, some women during menstruation or before can experience breast pain and will generally get better when menstruation has ended.
- There is inflammation in the breast such as mastitis, which usually occurs in breastfeeding women due to a buildup of milk that is not excreted and is infected with bacteria so that the breasts are swollen and painful
- A lump in the breast, both benign and malignant (cancer). An example that often occurs in young women is fibroadenoma.
- due to injuries to other body parts such as the muscles around the chest, shoulders and back.
- due to the influence of drugs, generally drugs such as hormonal birth control, antidepressant drugs, or heart medications can cause breast pain.
- breast size, some women who have large breasts may experience breast pain.
- unhealthy eating patterns.
- history of breast surgery. If the operation was carried out recently then it is also possible that the pain caused by the operation could be one of the causes, because in some women this pain can be felt longer.
Some ways you can do to relieve the pain apart from medication include reducing the intake of foods containing saturated fats, reducing caffeine intake such as from coffee, tea, and if you have a smoking habit then try to stop this habit. Using a bra that fits your size may also help relieve this painful symptom. In addition, you can also try compressing your breasts with warm or cold water.

Other pain relievers such as aspirin are not recommended for use in women under 20 years because it can cause Reye's syndrome.
If the complaint you feel doesn't get better, you should immediately consult your doctor, you can also ask the surgeon who used to operate on your sister and ask about the cause of her previous complaint and consult the current pain that is not getting better so it can Do a re-examination of the progress of your sister's condition either by ultrasound, mammography or other imaging tests to find out more about the exact cause and treatment can be done according to the cause.
In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the following conditions that must be consulted with a doctor immediately, namely:
- a change in the shape and size of the breast.
- discharge from the nipple accompanied by blood.
- a lump or swollen with pain that does not coincide with the arrival of menstruation.
