Chest hurts: when is it time to see a doctor?

The chest can tell a lot. Sometimes it hurts so much that even wearing underwear becomes unpleasant. Are these sensations dangerous and what does your body want to warn you about?

Many women experience breast tenderness. Some people feel it during the period of premenstrual syndrome, others - regardless of the menstrual cycle. There are also lucky beauties who are never bothered by this symptom. What to do if you have always considered yourself one of these lucky women, but suddenly faced with soreness of the mammary glands? Let's first understand the causes of unpleasant sensations and identify the most dangerous of them.

The first thing to pay attention to is the attachment of pain to a certain period: cyclical and acyclic unpleasant sensations are distinguished.


Cyclic ones appear at a specific phase of the menstrual cycle, shortly before menstruation, and after the onset of critical days they pass.Most often, during this period, the fairer sex notices an increase in sensitivity and swelling of the breast, feels a dull aching pain. Cyclical discomfort can be experienced by adolescents, women of reproductive age, and women during menopause. Most often, they bother the fair sex after thirty years.

Acyclic discomfort is not tied to the rhythms of the body and bother the fairer sex almost all the time. The pain in this case is sharp and sharp, it can be one-sided. Also, with palpation of the mammary glands, certain hardenings in the chest are sometimes felt. Risk group - women after forty years. They need to be extra careful about their breasts!

Now let's move on from the nature to the reasons for the soreness of the mammary glands. Cyclic discomfort can be caused by such factors:

  • hormonal changes: menstrual irregularities, pregnancy, puberty or menopause;
  • premenstrual syndrome;
  • taking oral contraception and hormonal drugs.

Acyclic pain is provoked by the following reasons:

  • incorrectly fitted bra;
  • too large breasts;
  • chest injuries and bruises;
  • taking certain medications (antidepressants, diuretics, etc.);
  • problems with the thoracic spine;
  • infection and inflammation of the mammary glands;
  • cysts, fibroadenomas, benign and malignant breast tumors.
Both of these types of pain require urgent medical attention. Especially bad jokes with acyclic unpleasant sensations, so do not hope that everything will go away on its own - go for it!

  3. In the chest, indurations of regular and irregular shape are felt;
  4. There are discharge from the mammary glands;
  5. One breast has become larger than the other, and the shape or size of the breast has changed.

These five factors should motivate you to immediately make an appointment with a mammologist and gynecologist.It is also important to prevent hormonal disorders, which can cause chest pain, and in the most advanced cases lead to the appearance of neoplasms in the mammary glands.
