I have breast pain on the first two days of my period, not like shooting pain but more like tenderness, then it basically goes away. When I start a new birth control the hormones don’t level out right away and I have a little bit of pain then… I had a lump checked about two years ago that they said went away and think it had to do with hormones changing but they keep an eye on it. When I had the lump I never felt pain… I have had ovarian cysts and those can hurt sometimes especially if there is pressure in that area in a certain spot…

sorry if this didn’t help much 😒

Breast cysts tend to react to hormonal shifts and are also sensitive to touch and to diet. If you start touching the cysts/feeling them, even with a slight press, you will give yourself pain/ache/tenderness in that area. They will feel worse the more you touch them.

Some women also experience issues with their cysts if they consume saturated fats, dairy, or chocolate. Cysts can change in size over the monthly cycle or over years. They can get smaller on their own as your practitioner noted, and also get larger again.

ChocolateLime:  Sometimews they do fine needle aspiration as part of the diagnostic workup. If all the fluid is withdrawn,it can serve double purpose as treatment too. Draining the cyst often makes the area more comfortable.

Cysts can also be treated with hormonal birth control, but the benefits must be weighed against the risks.

Surgical removal is rarely necessary.
