RE: left breast tenderness

Dear Scottishlass16: About two years ago I was having pain in my left breast. Finally went to have a diagnostic mammogram. I was braced for bad news, but then they told me there was nothing there wrong and that it was probably caused by hormonal fluctuations. I was 50 at the time and in perimenopause. I hope you will get it checked out with a mammogram. Sasha

RE: left breast tenderness

I have had that too especially in the left breast and have had a couple of mamograms and everything is good. I am 58. It seems to be a lot worse if I do lifting or painting even tho I am right handed. Sometimes I get worried but by examining the right breast I find it is sore in the exact same places, just doesn't hurt like left one does.
