Pain associated with your periods
Linked to the menstrual cycle, cyclical breast pain usually affects women in their 30s and 40s, and often stops after the menopause.
HRT
However, women who are taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can also experience breast pain because the HRT keeps them in a pre-menopausal state.

Looking at causes and treatments for this common condition
Breast pain (mastalgia) is very common, affecting women of all ages and at any time in their lives.
There are two main types of breast pain:
• cyclical - directly related to the menstrual cycle
• non-cyclical - unrelated to menstruation.
Both types are treatable, if you have breast pain which is long lasting or severe talk with your GP. On its own breast pain is not usually a symptom of breast cancer.

What are breast cysts?
Breast cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop in the breast tissue. Cysts naturally occur as the breast ages and changes.

Cysts are most common in women between 35 and the onset of the menopause, but are less so after the menopause, however breast cysts can develop at any age and many women develop cysts without knowing about them.

Understanding Breast Cancer -- Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Breast Cancer?
In its early stages, breast cancer usually has no symptoms. As a tumor develops, you may note the following signs:
• A lump in the breast or underarm that persists after your menstrual cycle; often the first apparent symptom of breast cancer, breast lumps are painless, although some may cause a prickly sensation. Lumps are usually visible on a mammogram long before they can be seen or felt.
• Swelling in the armpit.
• Although lumps are usually painless, pain or tenderness in the breast can be a sign of breast cancer.
