Tingling Sensation In Breast

I have been having Tingling sensations in both my breast at odd times during the day. It is at times related to my emotions i.e. if I am upset it will flare up. But I will have the tingling during times I am having very calm moments as well. This is very odd and uncomfortable feeling. I know I am not pregnant and it's a different feeling than the tender breast feeling you get when you are pregnant. Has anyone else out there had any similar feelings or have any idea what this could be?

Answer

Hi Tammy - Since this is in both breasts, it wouldn't be a breast cancer symptom. You might want to take a look at our post on breast vibrations, see if this seems like what you're experiencing. Other than that, it could be peri-menopausal - are you at an age where you might be heading into menopause? Next time you see your GP, ask him/her about this; it could be there's something that can be done about it. Sounds annoying! Good luck - PJH
