Cyst: You may have a sebaceous cyst or some additional breasttissue that can exist between your breast or armpits. That is related to hormones. Can you push any discharge out of it? If so it is a pimple/sebaceous cyst (can be removed by your doctor). If it get large or bothersome see your doctor. If it increases prior to your period; it may be additional breasttissue!

What causes your breasts to hurt?

Could be many things: Hormonal changes during your menstrual cycle and fibrocystic breast changes (lumpy, tender breasts) are common causes of breast pain. Pregnancy is another common cause, along with hormone replacement, large breasts, cysts, infection & inflammation. And sometimes what may seem to originate from the breast may actually be pain from somewhere else. If you suffer from breast pain, see your doctor.

Breast tenderness.: Breast pain can be from many reasons. The most common is the tenderness that fluctuates from the menstrual cycle. This is a normal process and not worrying. If you notice pain in one breast and not the other, then this could be a sign of cancer, infection, or other worrisome process. If you are worried, you need to go see a doctor for an exam. Don't forget your yearly mammograms!

Not much: This is a huge problem for a lot of women. Hormones are driving this change. Sometimes weight loss can help (if you are, in fact, overweight). Sometimes taking birth control pills can lessen degree of changes during period. You can also try menstrual suppression... Skipping placebo week of pills and going straight to new pack, again, if you are on birth control pills. Ibuprofen can help too.
