I've been experiencing breast pain and tenderness for a few weeks now, and I'm worried it might be breast cancer. I have tried Ibuprofen but it's not helping much. Is this normal? What should I do?

      If pain killers aren’t doing the magic then probably it’s about time you go for a breast examination from your doctor. Don't be scared, just look at it like some sort of routine examination

      Uhmm, it is important to mention that not all breast pain is necessarily cancer. there are multiple other (a lot more benign and common reasons) for breast pain. That said, when I have breast pain, I use warm compresses or a heating pad on my breasts, and it helps ease the discomfort.

      I had similar symptoms before my diagnosis, and it turned out to be related to hormonal changes (and not cancer). My doctor made me do a mammogram because of my age, I’m 46. Don't worry too much hun, it might probably be nothing, but please don't wait, get it checked out. Better safe than sorry, right? Keep us posted on what you find out

Breast pain and tenderness can be associated with various factors such as high anxiety, exercise or work without a bra, being near your period, or pregnancy. It could also be due to growing pains or nerve-related issues. However, if you are really worried, it is recommended to contact your doctor. Regular self-breast exams can help you familiarize yourself with what lumps are normal in your breasts and which may be new and problematic. If the pain persists, seeking medical advice is crucial for peace of mind and proper diagnosis.
