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

Wilma, if you want to get in touch with Zahra to hear the outcome of her situation, click on her name (in blue) and send her a message, OK? She might not still be monitoring this thread, as it was started quite some time ago. If you have similar symptoms, my answer above still applies. Good luck - PJH
