I should also ad that it hurts when I lay on my stomache
Pain in one breast could be caused by a wide range of reasons.From what you describe,it doesn't sound like breast cancer since this disease is almost never associated with breast pain.If you haven’t noticed anything unusual,like a lump,redness and swelling,nipple retraction,skin changes etc…then I would guess that it could very well be a pinched nerve,or a pulled chest muscle,or even costochondritis (inflammation of the cartilage that joins a rib to the breastbone)which could be the source of the pain you are experiencing.
As you can see, the causes could be many,and if you haven't seen a doctor yet,I would advise you to do so, to conduct a physical examination and diagnostic procedures to zero in on the underlying cause.
All the best ...
Can't get in to see my doctor for a couple of weeks and the waiting is killing me. Problem is my breasts are naturally bumpy and lumpy so I wouldn't even know what a suspicious lump would feel like.
Thanks for your reply btw
Seeing your doctor in a couple of weeks is just fine. If you have lumpy breasts, a breast lump, will feel different because it will usually stand out from the surrounding tissue.Please try not to worry so much,your symptoms don't indicate breast cancer... Your doctor will examine you and determine if the pain arises from a breast condition or from other causes I mentioned in my previous comment. In the meantime you can take some over the counter pain killers to ease the discomfort.
