Hi..i Am 23 Year Old Female I Have Breast Pain And Sometimes Itching Can I Know The Cause For It And Problems From This?

Answer

Rubiya, at age 23 your chance of having breast cancer is very, very low; so please don't stress too much over that possibility. You could be experiencing fibrocystic change, which is quite common in women your age. While not dangerous, it does produce uncomfortable symptoms, including pain. Please read our post on breast pain, and our post on itchy breasts, for information you might find useful. If the pain and itchiness persist longer than a month,you'd probably want to be checked by a doctor, to find out what's causing your symptoms and to do something about them. Take care - PJH
