Women of all ages frequently experience breast pain. Having uncomfortable, aching, or painful breasts can be quite stressful. However, breast pain on its own isn't typically a symptom of breast cancer. Breast soreness is a common symptom of women's health regular menstrual cycles. This type of pain in the breast is cyclical. Non-cyclical breast pain is a persistent ache in the breast that is unrelated to menstruation. Sometimes what seems to be breast pain is coming from another location, like a torn muscle in the chest. Chest wall pain is the term for this.
