Breast Lumps and Pain (cont.)

Breast Lumps and Pain Medical Treatment

When your breast pain is severe enough to interfere with your lifestyle and when it occurs for more than a few days each month, you may be treated with medications. Before treatment is begun, document the frequency and severity of your pain on a daily basis for at least one to two menstrual cycles. This pain diary will also help check your response to treatment.
