Can Stress And Worry Cause Breast Pain

I have pain in my left breast that comes and goes. I'm really stressed at the moment because of family health problems. Does anyone know if stress can cause pain like this? Thanks for your help.

Answer

Stress and worry can certainly amplify pain you may have in a certain area but you really can't tell if that's so until you get it checked out by a doctor. Sure it could be stress but it could emanate from something real. If you're having a new or chronic type of pain it's always best to get it checked out by a doctor.
