Hi,
If you feel pain in your breasts then the first thing to do is rule out the presence of a lump/abscess/cyst.You need to be examined properly by a surgeon.This kind of pain has several possibilities and depends on a detailed history,age,past history etc.Sometimes,cyclical pain is seen often in may women.However,if the pain is continous then a mammography is in order.I suggest seeing a doctor to rule out any lumps first and go from there.
