Symptoms of mastalgia may include pain in the breast area. Pain may be mild or severe.
It may occur in both breasts or just one. It may be painful only in one spot or all over the breast.
When Should I Call My Doctor?
Call your doctor right away if you have any signs of infection, such as redness, tenderness, fever, or chills.
Call your doctor if you notice any other changes in your breasts, such as:
- Change in the size or shape of your breast
- Discharge from your nipple
- New lumps or masses felt in the breast
- Other changes to the skin on your breasts, such as crusting, dimpling, or puckering
Call your doctor if your breast pain persists, interferes with your daily routine, or is in one specific area of your breast.
If you think you have an emergency, call for medical help right away.
