Are you big breasted? Sometimes persistently heavy,swollen feeling and sore breasts not related to the menstrual cycle have more to do with surrounding muscles and ligaments rather than with the breast tissue itself. Fibrocystic breasts are usually lumpy. It's best to have an examination &get advice from your physician or gynecologist.

Persistent breast pain and heaviness suggest that breasts are inadequately supported. A better bra is suggested as a first step. If symptoms persist, consider seeing a trusted physician for further evaluation.
