Yes. Mastalgia (i.e., breast pain) one of the most common problems affecting women, is manageable and treatable. For more information on types and causes of mastalgia, see our Q&A called Mastalgia.
Many cases of mastalgia are caused by fibrocystic disease (a benign condition) of the breast. Although breast pain can be distressing and cause discomfort, it rarely is associated with undiagnosed breast cancer.
Nevertheless, if you are experiencing breast pain, consult your integrative medical physician or your gynecologist for a clinical breast examination, diagnosis, and recommendations for managing breast pain. For information on preventing and managing fibrocystic disease of the breast, see our Q&A called Managing Fibrocystic Breast Disease.
Dietary and lifestyle modifications usually can correct the problem of breast pain. If breast pain persists after dietary and lifestyle modifications, however, consult your doctor to discuss treatments (such as hormonal therapy) for breast pain.
