What Causes Breast Pain?
I wonder why? My breasts often hurt, I checked and ultrasound was OK, and the results were okay, only antibiotics and painkillers were given
Hello Ms. Samiatul,
Breast pain or mastalgia is certainly very disturbing and worries women. Breast pain can be caused by several things, namely:
Hormonal changes related to the menstrual cycle. Usually approaching the menstrual cycle or during menstruation, the breasts feel more tense and painful in both breasts. Breast inflammation or mastitis. Usually in addition to pain, there can be a change in skin color, redness, lumps or swelling of the breasts, it can occur in only one breast or both, sometimes accompanied by fever. Quite often experienced by women who are breastfeeding. Lumps in the breasts Injury to the muscles around the breasts. Use of drugs such as birth control pills, antidepressants. Breast size that is too large. If after taking medicines given by a doctor, the pain persists, you should really go back to the doctor. Especially if the pain is persistent and gets more intense, the pain is felt specifically in one place in one breast, and pain that interferes with activity. You can also do routine BSE (Self-Check Breast) at home to detect early abnormalities in your breasts.
Hopefully the explanation above is useful.
