About the symptom

This describes the paiful sensation when pressing on the breast.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Pain when pressing the breast

Possible causes

  • Breast cancer

    Cancer of the breast. Risk factors include estrogen, genetics, alcohol and obesity. Protective factors include having been pregnant, especially at a younger age.

  • Mastitis

    Inflammation of the breast, caused by bacteria entering the milk ducts, or by a duct becoming blocked. Good breastfeeding technique and avoiding pressure on the breast can help to prevent it.

  • Mastopathy

    A condition where a painful lump forms in the breast. This is caused by imbalances in female hormone levels, hence symptoms tend to occur before and during menses.
