Hello Iis, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I will try to help answer.
Complaints of pain in the breast without accompanied by swelling or lumps can be caused by:
Mastalgia is a pain that arises in the breast that generally appears during menstruation or menstruation, it is due to hormonal changes during menstruation.
Mastitis is an inflammation that occurs in the breast, especially occurs in mothers who are breastfeeding. Symptoms are felt in the form of fever, pain, redness of the breast and swelling.
Mammary abscess is an infection that occurs in the breast. Symptoms experienced in the form of pain in the breast, can be accompanied by fever, there are lumps that contain pus.
As for the characteristics of breast cancer are lumps that appear uneven, hard, lumps can not be moved, the nipple is pulled in, breast skin like orange peel, sometimes pus appears large.
To better know the symptoms that lead to what disease, further examination is needed by a doctor. Later the doctor will conduct a physical examination related to complaints that arise, and may even require additional examinations if needed. When this corona virus outbreak is happening, if the pain that arises does not feel so painful you are still advised to stay home. However, if complaints such as unbearable, severe pain occur, take a high fever immediately to the nearest hospital for further treatment.
Some things to do at home:
Compress the affected part with warm water
Can consume pain relievers such as paracetamol
Avoid holding or massaging the affected part
Use underwear that isn't too tight
Avoid stress and get enough rest
Thus a brief explanation from me, hopefully can help. thanks.
