Exam: I think this warrants a physical exam by a physician, either a gynecologist, family medicine doctor or internist. You want to make sure that there are no lumps, swollen lymph nodes or other reasons that could be serious for this breast pain. It's likely due to hormones, but always always check things out when it comes to breast pain. Could be related to cramping, but could also be independent. ...Read more
