Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Breast pain can be caused by normal conditions or abnormal conditions.
Normal conditions that cause breast pain are:
Puberty: in the puberty phase, the glands in the breast are growing, so they will feel painful
Hormonal changes before menstruation: starting from 3 days before menstruation, the breasts usually become tense, hard, and painful. However, this is normal because of the effect of hormonal changes on the menstrual cycle and will improve after menstruation
Incorrect use of a breast support (BH)
Breast size that is too large
There are also conditions for breast pain that are not normal and are a sign of a disease, namely:
Mastalgia: mastalgia is a painful condition in the breast that is caused by the milk that is not being passed out. In this condition, the breasts feel tight, hard, painful, but not red.
Inflammation of the breast (mastitis): inflammation of the breast is most often a complication of mastalgia. In mastitis, besides being painful and hard, the breasts have also been reddish (inflamed)
Breast pus (breast abscess): breast pain, redness, and there is a soft, water-like mass in the breast (pus)
Breast cyst (mamary dysplasia): characterized by painful lumps during menstruation
Large benign breast tumor (tumor phyloides): the size of the tumor causes compression of the surrounding tissue causing pain
If you have checked with the doctor, then you have taken the right steps. If it turns out that the results of the examination show that there are no abnormalities in your breasts, it may be that the pain is related to normal breast conditions that can trigger pain as mentioned above. However, if you are still in doubt, you can check with your doctor again to be checked again and to make sure that there is a disease in your breasts or not and then it can be managed appropriately.
Some things you can do to deal with complaints and maintain breast health are:
Warm compresses where the pain is, especially if it is caused by a buildup of breast milk or an infection
Pump out the milk if the pain is due to the milk dam
Use a bra that fits your breast size and is comfortable for you
Perform a breast self-examination (BSE) for initial screening for benign or malignant breast lumps
Avoid consumption of cigarettes, alcohol, saturated fatty foods, foods with high salt content, instant foods
Good stress management, for example by relaxing or doing a hobby that you enjoy doing
You can take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol to relieve your symptoms
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful.
