This is a common reason why women (and men) are seen in the One Stop Breast Clinic. A history will try to determine how long the pain has been there, what makes it better or worse, if it related to the monthly cycle (cyclical mastalgia) or if there is no pattern (non-cyclical mastalgia). Breast pain is not usually associated with breast cancer. Treatment options include gentle reassurance, a trial of medication (e.g. Primrose Oil or anti inflammatories).
