Mastitis is inflammation of the breast, which is an infection of the breast tissue that causes abnormal swelling and redness of the breast.

In most cases, it occurs as a result of infection of the female mammary ducts and occurs in nursing mothers. During breastfeeding, bacteria from the baby’s mouth can enter the woman’s breast through the nipple.

In addition to breast pain, mastitis causes the following symptoms.

General breast discomfort.
A temperature of 38.3 C (101 F) or higher.
Cold, tired or weak.
Warm or red breast skin.
Discharge or discharge from the nipple is common.
If left untreated, mastitis can lead to abscess formation. Once diagnosed, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics (for infections) and NSAIDs (for pain, swelling, and fever).

    Finding a lump in your breast can be scary. However, not all tumors and lumps are cancerous. Such a benign (non-malignant) tumor is called a fibroma. It usually occurs in women under the age of 30.

Although fibroids are very small, they are very different from the surrounding breast tissue. Their boundaries are clearly defined and they can be moved under the skin. They almost feel like small marbles and can have a rubbery feel.

Although the exact cause of fibroids is not fully known, the hormone “estrogen” is believed to play an important role in the formation and development of these benign tumors. Additionally, use of birth control pills in women under 20 is associated with a higher risk of fibroids.

These benign tumors can grow, especially if you are pregnant. During menopause, women report that their fibroids shrink. Fibroids can go away on their own. Sometimes, if they are larger, surgical excision is necessary.

  1. Cyst
    A human breast cyst may look like a lump, but it can actually be a small and usually benign sac in the breast tissue that is filled with fluid rather than cancerous or non-cancerous cells.
    They can appear in one or both breasts and are manifested by the following symptoms. Breast tenderness or pain in the breast cyst area.
    Discharge from the nipple can be clear, straw or dark brown in color.
    A lump that is smooth, moves easily, and has clear borders or edges (represents benign properties).
    Breast tenderness and lump size changes with the menstrual cycle.
    Fluid-filled breast cysts are usually confirmed by ultrasound and require no treatment. If your symptoms are severe, your doctor may prescribe birth control or hormone therapy. In rare cases, surgery is recommended.
    Cyclic breast pain, such as pain during menstruation, is the most common cause of mastalgia. This symptom is part of what is known as premenstrual syndrome or PMS.

It usually occurs in women due to normal monthly hormonal fluctuations, and generally this pain occurs in both breasts. Estrogen causes the mammary ducts to enlarge, and progesterone causes the mammary glands to swell – both events that lead to breast tenderness. Women who suffer from menstrual breast pain often describe it as breast pain or heaviness that radiates to the arms and armpits.

Generally, this pain is most severe just before menstruation and usually stops after menstruation. It usually occurs in young women and usually disappears during menopause.

  1. FOOD
    Your diet may be to blame for your breast pain. Foods high in sodium, caffeine or fat are perfect examples.

Other foods to watch out for:
• Peanuts, walnuts, almonds and other dried foods
• Black tea, green tea, soda, and other caffeinated beverages
• Chocolate
• Processed condiments or sauces
• Salted fries or popcorn
• Red meat and ham

If you haven’t seen a doctor yet and you still have breast pain despite limiting the foods mentioned above, see your doctor right away.

Also, if you have persistent or severe breast pain, or if an existing breast lump has grown or changed, see your doctor right away. Be healthy!
