Having chest pain, no lumps found. Ultrasound done. Could it be breast cancer?

Hi, i have had some dull chest pain on my left side. I become aware of the pain when a carry one of my children, i have a 3 year old an 7month old twins. I feel the dull pain on the left side of my chest/breast area. It feels to be under the breast area. No lumps . Could this be something serious? such as breast cancer . I have had an ultrasound performed on my left breast and, thankfully nothing was found however the dull pain remains. Would a mammogram rule out any possibility of cancer?

hello dear
mastalgia (breast pain ) without lump is unlikely related to cancer. hence need not to worry. mastalgia are of two type 1)CYCLICAL: starts one or two days prior to menstruation and relieves on onset of menstruation 2)NON-CYCLICAL: is not related to menstrual cycle. cyclical needs only counselling, evening primerose 3gm/day in divided doses, avoid coffee and chocolate intake. noncyclical needs only pain killer. hence classify your pain into cyclical and noncyclical. and take decision. hope this is helpful to you.
