Suggest treatment for pain in breasts

My left breast has been hurting for about 5 days. It doesn t hurt when I lay on my back or standing or sitting. It doesn t hurt when I touch it or feel around it but once I bend down or lay down on my left side there is stretching painful hurt to it. Why? I don t start my period until 3 more weeks and I am 41 years old and this pain has never been in my breast before in my life. What should be causing it?

Thank You for contacting HCM.

I read your query;
As per your concern i would like to ask you
>Did you examine your breast??
>If so, did u noticed any swelling or lump???
>Any history of heavy weight lifting or hit by something ??
At the moment i would suggest You
>To take simple painkiller like Diclofenic potassium or naproxen twice daily.
>If pain does not settle in 3-5days ,then consult your physician for complete evaluation.
> Go for breast scan as well.
