I'm Having Breast Pain

Breast diseases are diverse in nature and present with different symptoms in addition to pain. Your symptoms may include:

  • Breast pain
  • Breast redness
  • Nipple discharge
  • Nipple inversion
  • Skin dimpling
  • A mass in your armpit area

Your particular symptoms may be minor or may be indicative of something far more serious. Because of the uncertainty at this stage, it is critical that you be seen by a breast specialist like Dr. O'Neill as soon as possible.

Breast Pain Relief Suggestions
