Why am I having sharp pains in my breast ?

Hi, I m a 19 year old female. 5 7, 120 lbs. Throughout my teens I ve been having some pain in my left breast, not so much in my right one. Now noticed that the pain is usually in my left side of the left breast. It s sometimes sharp. Also, my right breast was always slightly larger than the left one. It s also softer. However I don t feel any lumps in the left one, just a thicker consistency. I was wondering if there might be something wrong with me.

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The pain in breast during teens is mainly at the time of periods or if it is other wise it is due to development changes and natural enlargement of breast.Also the size is not perfectly symmetrical in all females.Presently if you have pain in breast which is worrying you please get examined by a Gynaec to rule out any problem.
Take care.
Thanks

i had a breast lift a year and a half ago and recently discovered a painful lump in my breast. I have been told by my primary dr that it is in the area of the incision and is not a concern. when I discovered it it was on the underneath side of my breast and has now moved to under the areola, it comes and goes with swelling and redness as well as gets larger then smaller. I have contacted the plastic surgeon as a breast center does not want to deal with it because of the lift and the the surgeon doesn t seem to concerned. what are my options?

Persistant itch of right nipple, that has been present for a couple of months? No other symptom, just itch? No redness, crust, discharge, swelling. Have been on HRT patches, 75mg, recently incr/ 100mg, (estrogen) only due to excessive hot sweats, that i had never experienced, for months, didn t consider menopause, due to on HRT, my age. Have been on est only, for, maybe, 30yrs, due to inexplicable, erratic, mood swings, that i, & Doctors thought, hormonal?? In 2007, i was diagnosed with, rapid Cycling Bipolar!! So many years of disruption, to my life, huge financial loss, in Hypermanic states, depression, was diagnosed, in 1998!! The ups , i believed, were me, not depressd. But, so many years, on HRT??? Have not had a mammogram, or ultra sound, for maybe 13yrs ,as i have breast implants, since 1982, have been told, by Doctors, less risk of breast cancer?? A mammogram, in 1994, ruptured implant!! Did, continue checks, annually, but ultrasound. Last, 2001, then moved from Syd to Gold Coast, no checks?/ I think maybe, with what Bipolar has done, breast cancer, stupid i know, but, don t want to know. Far from an intelligent attitude, & writing this, maybe, since looking up causes, none, with added symptoms, make sense, relate, maybe, a little concerning?? Sensible option, have an ultra sound?? But, maybe no need?? Simple answer, just an itchy nipple?? I don t have a GP at the moment. So, could it be something to be concerned about, or nothing?? Annie
