"Mastodynia": Sorting out different causes of breast pain starts with determining if the pain is coming from the breast tissue or the chest wall. Favoring the former includes variation w/menstrual cycle; favoring the latter is relation to activity and post-menopausal state. I recommend that you see your gyne or primary care dr. To help sort thru this. Good luck.

Costalchondritis: Pain to touch implicates the ribs where they join the breastbone. Inflammation at that site can explain your pain, and is called tzietz's syndrome. Use heating pad and avoid heavy lifting. If not resolve a cortisone injection can help.
