I Am 60 Years Of Age And Have Had Sore Tender Breast Forever.

Answer

Hi - Since this has been going on "forever," it wouldn't sem to be a breast cancer symptom. Breast cancer will definitely grow, present a lump (or make your breast swell), and worsen and become evident over time, if it's going to be an issue.

This might be an unfortunate post-menopausal symptom, having to do with lack of hormones. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? Perhaps a referral to a breast specialist could help identify what's causing this soreness, and get you some help. Good luck - PJH
