In brief: Breast Pain

Most women's breasts are "lumpy-bumpy" and often hurt just before/during one's menstrual cycle.
When this "flies above the radar", we give it fancy names like "mastalgia" and "fibrocystic changes". Some women respond to caffeine avoidance, vitamin e, oil of primrose, or even occasional nsaids. Please discuss your concerns with your gynecologist--they should be able to reassure you not to worry.
