My Right Breast Itches And Sometime Burn And Has A Sharp Pain

Answer

Dani, how long has this been going on? If it's recent, then think about what changes you might have made that could be causing this. Are you using new soap, or laundry detergent? Maybe you bought a new bra? Breasts are very sensitive, and can react to small changes in their environment.

If you can't think of anything that's changed, track those symptoms; if they last longer than a month (or certainly if they worsen quickly), then you'd want to see a doctor. If it's been more than a month since you noticed this, and if it comes and goes, see if it's on a regular schedule; like, maybe the pain is always worse just before your period. That would poiont to it being a hormonal issue.

While what you describe doesn't sound like a breast cancer symptom, it's possible that it's a sign of a rare form of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer. So if the symptoms persist, are constant, and seem to be getting worse, please see a doctor. Good luck - PJH
