Okay so lately ive had a pain in my left breast and it always happpens when i get my period but lately its been hurting more does that mean i have cancer? Last night i couldnt sleep cuz of the pain i had to take advil.
Oh, L, so sorry! Not being able to sleep because of pain is such a bummer... Pain isn't usually one of the symptoms of breast cancer. Tender, painful breasts around the time of your period, however, are quite normal. Since it's making you SO uncomfortable, why not check in with your doctor? (S)he can both set your mind at rest about cancer, AND perhaps prescribe something to help you through these painful menstrual cycles. Good luck! - PJH
Lately I've had pain in a lump I discovered in my left breast as well, and so finally went and got it checked. The doctor had the biopsy done expediently through the University, and it resulted in a positive finding, which explains the pain. It turns out to be a very invasive cancer; and difficult to detect: Infiltlrating Lobular Carcinoma. Don't fool around with this. Be very forward about seeking information regarding cuting-edge treatment.
