One breast hurts... breast cancer?

I thought I might’ve hurt myself from doing this crazy dance at Zumba. I felt it hurt instantly when we did this dance that required a lot of jumping from side to side. But it’s been about two weeks now and I’m still feeling the pain off and on in my left breast. I read on here maybe nerve or muscle damage? Who knows? Breast cancer? I did the self exam. Check every morning and night in the mirror. Everything on google says breast cancer. Freaking tf out here. I love the good days, and I dread the days like this where I’m screaming on the inside and no one knows what’s going on.

I am in the same boat as you!

My breasts get VERY sore as soon as I start ovulation and stops hurting the day I get my period. However -- my right breast has been unbearable this month, almost like I pulled a muscle! It started on Christmas Day.

My best advice -- trust your instincts. If you are doing the breast exam and don't find something, try to just rationalize your fears. I performed a breast exam on myself at least 5 times today. I think you would be experiencing other symptoms if it were to be breast cancer, at least thats what my trusty medical websites I search 50x a day tell me, lol

Good morning!
I haven’t had pain for 3 days. I’m still very afraid of what it could or couldn’t be... this morning I woke up a little tender, but I got my period yesterday, so I think that explains that. I’m not sure what this is, or isn’t. Thanks for checking in!

Is it just one breast or 2?

No nipple pain, it’s more like around my breast.

Where exactly is the pain? Any nipple pain?
