I don't know if this is cause for concern, but I suddenly felt a sharp piercing pain in my left nipple as if a pin got stuck there or something. When I checked the nipple appear somewhat red & is sensitive to the touch. I applied some vitamin e oil in case it's an irritation of some sort, but I must say the sudden impact of it all scared me. Does anyone know if this is cause for alarm? I recently had a breast ultrasound & was told there was nothing to worry about, but will be seen in 6 months for a follow-up screening.
(((Mori))) if it doesn't happen again, I'd assume it was nothing to be concerned about, since you are already being thoroughly checked in that area. I get those types of pains occasionally, and find that when I put my progesterone cream on, they go away.
Did the pain shoot up from the breast into the nipple? I have expeirenced this a couple times - the first time was 2 days before surgery and I thought it was a panic attack. But it has happened a couple of times in the past 10 days since surgery. Oh and this is on my left breast and nipple area only. The other morning it was redder than the right. Am I looking too hard? Or should I be concerned. The breast that showed suspicious finding was the right.
Hi, I don't really know much about your symptoms & was told in my case that if it didn't happen again I shouldn't be concerned. Maybe it was just an irritation. Maybe you should mention it to your doctor if it happens often.
I go in for a TAH on 8/29. In March I had a surgical biopsy on my right breast. Now I'm having nipple pain (not severe, tho) in that breast. It worries me too, I'll admit.
The pain doesn't seem to shoot from or to anywhere else.
This is too weird! I had the same shooting pain in my left breast. It hurt so bad. Sort of like with PMS, my boobs were pretty swollen and full and without much pressure, my nipples passed both clear fluid & milky-green fluids, for a couple of days.
Scared the hell out of me but it has gone away. I did some research on the web and sometimes hormones causes discharge from the breast... Thats what I'm leaning towards and unless it gets worse I'm leaving it alone for now.
Keep in touch...
