Breast Pain  
Breast pain, or mastalgia, is a really common breast symptom that accounts for nearly half of all breast-related visits to doctors. It can be a very difficult problem to treat because there are lots of different reasons that breast pain can occur, and there are not good proven methods of treating every type of pain.Whenever you have a problem with your breasts sometimes people wonder “Could this be cancer?”. It is really rare for pain alone to be the first sign of breast cancer but it is always wise, whenever there is a change in the breast, to get it checked out. This should include a thorough consultation and examination and will include some investigations, depending on your symptoms and age.
