Sore breasts along with sharp left breast pain. What do you recommend?

Observation

Pain
Likely fibrocystic. If persists after 2-3 cycles, see a doctor. Evaluation may include a mammogram and ultrasound. For now try a supportive bra 24/7 and Motrin.

Sore lump under left breast. lump feels quite hard and get itchy breasts a lot before lump appeared?

See PCP

Itching
Make appointment to see your family physician. At 32 years, cancer of the breast is not common but not infrequent but you must be sure. "All lumps of the breast must be resolved."

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

Ribs

Nipple
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. Diagnostic workup may include thoracic CT / MRI to exclude aneurysm.

Breasts extremely dense.Microcalcifications in upper outer quadrant left breast the posterior one third are loosely grouped on the cc.How bad is this?

Hard to say

Mammogram
Calcification almost always causes patient confusion and concern. You are not alone. However, without further description about the appearance of the calcs, distribution, absence or presence of other calcs, etc, its impossible to give you a fair interpretation. In general, management is either 6 month follow up or stereotactic biopsy. I recommend talking to the radiologist who read the mammogram.

Iam 18weeks preg.I having continous nd some times intense pain in my left breast.My both breasts became enlarged nd tender by now.But left one hurts.y?

Exam by physician

Pain
If you are having localized pain you should be examined by a doctor who can assess you better than we possibly can over the internet. You may just have normal glandular tissue, or you may have a cyst or infection that requires treatment.

I get a small pain I can point to on inner left breast sometimes. Breasts r large & it is sometimes near period. Pain scale: 1. I Checked with dr who listened to heart & wasn't worried. But Im anxious?

Check again

Pain
If the pain lasts long enough ask your doctor to check while you are hurting. Also have a D.O. Or Chiriropractic check as it might be musculoskeletal like, costochondritis. Vthats painful rib joint where it attaches to sternum. But, most pains that come and go like that are benign.
