I Sometimes Get A Very Painful Burning Sensation In My Breast When Bending Down What Could This Be?

Sometimes when i take my bra off and bend down i get a very painful burning sensation in my breast which feels as if the flesh in side my breast is being ripped off the breast bone i have to hold my breast to ease the pain i can experience this when wearing a bra aswell. Please help as i am starting to worry there could be something really wrong.THANK YOU.

Hi Corinne: This doesn't sound at all like a breast cancer symptom. Since it's related to movement, might it be a muscle pull of some kind? Or maybe a nerve thing. Since it sounds pretty painful, why don't you make an appointment for an exam? That way, the doctor can both assure you it isn't breast cancr or something else very serious, AND help you get ome relief. Good luck - PJH
