In brief: "Mastodynia"

Sorting out different causes of breast pain starts with determining if the pain is coming from the breast tissue or the chest wall.
Favoring the former includes variation w/menstrual cycle; favoring the latter is relation to activity and post-menopausal state. I recommend that you see your gyne or primary care dr. To help sort thru this. Good luck.
