Doctor Answers (2) on Breast pain
Thank you for your query regarding breast and arm pit pain and swelling.
The cause for the symptoms, described could be many but at the outset I,d like to know if you are currently breastfeeding or using any hormonal medication and do regular breast self examination or have a family history of breast disease. Have u detected any localized breast lump, nipple discharge or galactorrhea recently.
Cyclical mastalgia is a common pre-menopausal symptom, if found to be excessive can be alleviated by simple analgesics, evening primrose oil and vitamin e supplements.
2. As far as your delayed period is concerned, I'd advice a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy and then consult a local gynaecologist.
