See your doctor: It is not uncommon to experience sore breast, but if this has persisted greater than a year, you will need to see your doctor. Soreness can be caused by some medication, certain things in the diet, changes in your weight, health problems, or potentially serious breast concerns, like breast cancer. Your doctor can review your history to help rule out these causes and offer treatment.

Cyclic?: It could be cyclic if it occurs prior to your period or with it. Women often retain fluids at those times. This stretches the breast & causes pain.
