Hi Doctor. I am breast pain. Right breast. I did a UV scan and nothing was detected. But I could feel a moveable mass while doing self exam of my breast. I am having shoulder pain as well. Pain started in Jan but it went off after few months. Now again the pain started.

Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Most common cause is cyclical mastalgia due to fibrocystic changes, which usually resolve with time. Treatment may be given if severe pain. The lump could be due to cyst, fibroadenoma or phylloides tumor or rarely cancer. Shoulder pain could be due to musculoskeletal origin. Better to see a breast surgeon who would examine you, ask for an ultrasound with mammogram (not in young patients) and SOS core biopsy if needed. If you want to further discuss your symptoms, feel free to contact me directly.
