As of late, have you been experiencing unexplainable BREAST PAIN/SORENESS/TENDERNESS???

If the answer to the last question is YES, here are some possible reasons that you may have been experiencing such discomfort.

According to WOMEN'S HEALTH MAGAZINE:

 1. PMS:

The most common cause of breast pain is a change in hormones that comes along with your period. This normal body response to shifts in estrogen typically manifests in swelling and tenderness on the day before your period begins and the first day of your flow, says Taraneh Shirazian, M.D., assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. This type of boob soreness is called cyclic pain, since it's related to your menstrual cycle. The good news: It should go away when your period ends. Birth control pills can help, says Shirazian, since they prevent ovulation and keep estrogen levels stable. And if you'd rather the skip the OTC pain reliever, primrose oil supplements may also ease soreness, she says.  


2. GOING HARD At The GYM:
Maybe you did an impressive round of pushups or dove into a serious new weight-lifting routine. This may seem like breast pain, but the discomfort actually stems from the muscles underneath the breasts. "There are the pectoral muscles there," explains Shirazian, and this set of muscles lying right under the breast tissue tightening and relaxing is actually the source of this tenderness. Get relief by applying heating padsand taking a pain reliever as directed, suggests Shirazian.
3. PULLED MUSCLE (NOT gym-related):
So maybe you haven't been hitting the gym harder, but were your lifting furniture or heavy bags that may have strained those pectoral muscles? If so, that soreness might actually be coming from the muscles underneath your breast tissue again, says Shirazian. You can treat it the same way you would above, with heat or OTC pain relievers. 
4. LUMPY BREASTS:
If you've been identified as a women with lumpy breast tissue (technically known as fibrocystic breast tissue), then you are probably well acquainted with breast tenderness linked to your menstrual cycle. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, this bumpy, uneven breast tissue is actually characterized by fluid-filled cysts, and it's not necessarily linked to breast cancer. However, they may be more sensitive to hormonal changes. 
5. caffeine, Caffeine, CAFFEINE!!!
While coffee and tea may not directly cause breast pain, some studieshave shown that cutting out caffeine can help alleviate discomfort, especially for women with fibrocycstic breast tissue. If your breasts feel particularly lumpy and you've got a three-cup-a-day habit, ask your doctor if you should consider cutting down.
According to READER'S DIGEST:
6. PREGNANCY:
Sore, tender, swollen breasts are often the very first sign of pregnancy, Dr. Ramos says. Congratulations! Blame your hormones: In the early stages of pregnancy your breasts grow faster than your baby. As your estrogen levels increase, they increase the size of your milk ducts, which in turn can increase breast pain and sensitivity, she explains.
7. bad bra, Bad Bra, BAD BRA!!!
Sixty-four percent of us are wearing the wrong size bra, according to a recent survey of over 10,000 women done by Women's Wear Daily. And this can cause problems worse than a lumpy silhouette. Poorly fitted bras, abrasive fabrics, and stabby underwire are all common causes of breast pain, Dr. Ramos says. Instead of enduring 12 or more hours a day in a boob-strangling nightmare, she says it's worth it to pay a little extra to get something that fits and is comfortable. These are common bra mistakes you might not realize you're making.
8. INFECTION:
Blocked milk ducts, ingrown hairs (yes nipple hair is totally normal), clogged sweat glands, and a bacterial illness can all cause localized infections in your breast, Dr. Ramos says. Infections are characterized by redness, swelling, and pain and may also cause your nipple to leak pus, blood, or green, red, or brown discharge. You may also have a fever and malaise. If you think you have an infection you need to see a doctor immediately to help determine the cause and the appropriate treatment.
9. BIRTH CONTROL:
"Any medication that changes your hormones has the potential to cause breast pain as a side effect," Dr. Ramos says. The most common culprit are birth control pills as they increase estrogen levels, but fertility treatments, hormone replacement therapies, and thyroid medications can also cause sensitivity, swelling, tenderness and pain in your breasts. Often this side effect diminishes over time but if it doesn't it's worth talking to your doctor about alternative medications. These are signs you might be on the wrong birth control.
10. BREASTFEEDING:
Your breasts are good for lots of things—sexy times, filling out a sweater, carrying a spare lipstick—but they really have one actual job: feeding a baby. And boy do they do that job well! During pregnancy, your breasts and milk ducts enlarge to prepare for being the sole source of sustenance for a whole human being. All this growing means a lot of pain, and that continues even more after your baby is born and actively suckling. A lactation consultant can be a lifesaver to a new mom with two incredibly tired tats.

According to BUSTLE:
11. PERIMENOPAUSE/ MENOPAUSE:
Just as predictable, monthly breast pain signals that the inner workings of your reproductive cycle are proceeding as scheduled, unpredictable breast pain can be a sign that your reproductive organs are closing up shop. Random breast pain is a common sign of perimenopause (the stage before true menopause sets in), a phase that most women enter into between the ages of 45 and 55. But don't freak out that you're somehow going into early menopause if your boobs seem to suddenly be aching at all different points of the month— premature menopause is rare, and the odds that you have it, especially absent any of the other symptoms (like not getting your period) or common causes (like ovary removal), are very, very low.


According to MEDICAL NEWS TODAY:

12. MEDICATIONS:

Certain medications can contribute to the development of breast pain. Medications that are linked to an increase in breast pain include the following:


  • Infertility treatments
  • Oral hormonal contraceptives
  • Postmenopausal estrogen and progesterone preparations
  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI)
  • Antidepressants
  • Digitalis preparations
  • Methyldopa (Aldomet)
  • Spironolactone (Aldactone)
  • Some diuretics
  • Anadrol
  • Chlorpromazine
According to ACTIVEBEAT:
13. LACK Of PROPER SUPPORT:
Gynecologists at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York, point to two rather large sources of breast pain—your girls are lacking adequate support! If you have large, heavy breasts, wearing a properly fitted bra will reduce breast bouncing and movement.
Basically, gravity is not your friend—meaning walking, standing, running, and climbing stairs without proper support will inevitably lead to breast and back pain. So go for a professional bra fitting and spend the money on an appropriately fitted bra that reduces bounce while showing proper support for your sisters.
14. DEVELOPMENT Of CYSTS:


Just as women with lumpy breast tissue (or fibrocystic breast tissue) are prone to bouts of breast soreness and tenderness tied to their menstrual cycles—they are also prone to developing cysts!
Research from the National Breast Cancer Foundation claims that women with fibrocystic breast tissue (lumpy, heavy, and/or uneven breast tissue) risk a higher incidence of developing fluid-filled cysts. Not to worry, a cyst isn’t always indicative of breast cancer. That being said; your doctor should examine any lumps or changes in breast tissue immediately.

According to TTAC:
15. DEVELOPMENT Of BREAST CANCER:
Many women assume that only an isolated lump with localized pain suggests the presence of breast cancer. The truth is that breast cancer can manifest as “scattered, seed-like” tumors that, in some cases, spread like small tentacles throughout breast tissue.
Experts from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston warn that breast cancer often shows up without the classic breast cancer warning signs of lumps or redness. Signs/symptoms such as swelling and irritation, dimpling, nipple discharge beyond normal lactation, nipple inversion, and/or a thickening and reddening of skin around the nipple are all potential early breast cancer signs you need to pay attention to.
MD ANDERSON CANCER CENTER In HOUSTON Chief of Translational Breast Cancer Research Dr. NAOTO UENO says;
“There are breast cancers that present as half a lump or there may be no lump at all. It could just be a strange-looking skin appearance or skin being red or dimpled.”

early-Breast-Cancer-signsLADIES;
