    What causes twinges in the left breast and tenderness during the post menopausal period?

post menopausal. also I am overweight. I have had a history of breast issues stemming from infection from the original surgery (staph) I have not had any major issues for a long time, except for occasional infection. Lately my left breast has been experiencing twinges. I have tenderness, but not really more than the right breast. any thoughts?

Hi,

Considering your age any issues with breasts need to be examined by a surgeon. Symptoms may be common for all conditions.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
