Depends: Many women naturally have inverted nipples. It depends on whether its a new finding or has always been that way. If it's always been that way, it's nothing to worry about. If it's a new thing, it needs very careful evaluation. ...Read more

Variety of issues: Women with larger breasts often times have visible large visible veins. This may or may not be the cause of your breast pain. However, at age 19 it is unlikely anything serious. They probably sent you to breast clinic to see if this is fibrocystic breast changes or mastodynia (breast pain). ...Read more

4 months of stabbing pain through left breast starting at nipple straight through to back. No lumps but have history of fibrocystic breasts.

Ribs: This is most likely an intercostal neuralgia, or irritation of the nerve associated with each rib. The pain is sharp, and stabbing, often radiating from breast area to the back.
Gastroesphageal reflux, particularly with hiatal hernia may cause similar symptoms.

Hard to say.: You are young and physically active so many may say "nothing to worry about". However, with the presence of nausea and radiating pain, you should be further evaluated to rule out possible pancreatitis or gallbladder issue. Your family history is very important. See your PCP. ...Read more

Leaning forward pain in right breast and sternum. Then bending over pain through left breast and chest to back. Doc says heart ok. Muscular? Nerve? Gas?

Leaning forward pain in right breast and sternum. Then bending over pain through left breast and chest to back. Doc says heart ok. Muscular? Nerve? Gas?

Positional: The positional nature of your pain makes me wonder about your spine - as you lean, you flex and extend it which open and close your neural foramina (the canals where the nerve roots exit). Arthritic spurs often encroach on these canals and can cause nerve root irritation. Arthritis in the facet joints of the spine can further cause positional pain. ...Read more

Stinging pain in left breast nipple part. What can it be? The reason behind it?

Stinging pain in left breast nipple part. What can it be? The reason behind it?

Many possibilities: There are many possible causes, so you should see your Dr to help sort this out. Since breast’s are usually not the exact same size, your bra may be rubbing/irritating one nipple more than the other. Sometimes laundry detergent or soaps/shower gels can also irritate the nipples. If the soreness is only around the time of your menses, then it could be hormonal. Sometimes there can be an infection.

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

I noticed today thqt my left breast felt hard and seemed bigger and perkier than my right and nipples hard?

Common: Breast asymmetry and changes in nipples are common with women particularly around their cycle at your age. It's also common in breast-feeding. Of course I do not know if this is true for you. Hormonal changes around the cycle are largely responsible. Commonly they will affect both breasts similarly. But occasionally asymmetrically as described. Fever, significant pain or masses-see your doctor. ...Read more

I recently had a mammogram done. Findings: There is a 0.8 cm asymmetry in the upper left breast 7 cm from the nipple. Should I worry?

My left breast was engorged and I walked into the edge of the door and heard a pop, then the bottom nipple hurt really bad for a week.?

Bruising: Breast engorgement is not normal unless a woman is nursing. If nursing and then trauma to the breast by walking into something, those breast cells will be like they are internally bruised and can be expected to hurt for up to 10 days. If persistent pain, worsening pain or growing redness, those are reasons to be evaluated. ...Read more

Get checked: The next step will be to schedule a breast exam. Without an exam I'm not sure anyone can advise you on this. Vibration symptoms occur in various body parts. Usually it is a small muscle spasm called a fasciculation. An exam is your next step. ...Read more

I'm experiencing stinging pain, left breast nipple part. It feels like something is pulling or stretching a nerve or something. Suddenly come and goes?

I'm experiencing stinging pain, left breast nipple part. It feels like something is pulling or stretching a nerve or something. Suddenly come and goes?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. If you have large breasts, it may be pulling on a nerve. Left breast usually hangs lower than right which may explain the symptoms in left breast only. You may wish to try a different bra that provides more support.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
