Q: Pain in the ribs and breast
i have a pain in the ribs & one of my breast. but no lump. What is it??
Hi Zahra - This could be due to any number of factors, most likely hormonal, or nerve-related. Breast pain, especially unaccompanied by a lump, is usually not a symptom of breast cancer. Please read our post on breast pain; that should help you decide whether/when to see a doctor about this. Good luck - PJH
