    My left breast has been hurting for about a month. My veins are very pronounced and it feels like someone has my breast in a vice grip. It hurts at just about any slight touch.

    Since this is just one breast, it's more concerning than if it were both - in which case I'd say it's probably hormonal. Please read our post on breast pain, and see if your symptoms match anything described there. Luckily, breast pain is - well, a pain - but usually nothing serious. However, a rare type of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer, can start with pain. Please read our post on IBC symptoms; and if you think you might be experiencing early signs, best to see a doctor sooner rather than later, just to rule it out. Hope this resolves on its own soon - PJH
