Breast pain never had it like this before!

Been on HRT bioidentical compound cream, low dose for a year. I do hace a mammogram scheduled in 2 weeks because my dr found a small cyst. Anyway yesterday all day i had sharp shooting pain thru my other breast and nipple that she didnt feel a cyst in. It went off and on all day then a little this morning. It stopped. Now its really sore like a pinch sting type feeling when my arm bumps the side of my breast! Like its angry and tender now from all the pain yesterday. Anyone experience this? I have a feeling its hormone related from being on hrt.

Re: Breast pain never had it like this before!

Had breast pain since the beginning of the menopause.. 19years ago!.. After bleeding just over a year ago. I had a hysterectomy and removal of my ovaries.. Dr prescribed HRT, but had bad headaches, and was worried about taking it with painful breast cysts, as they are caused by by estrogen! Thank You x

Re: Breast pain never had it like this before!

I've had fibrocystic breasts for about 15 years now, with crazy lumps/cysts that have to get aspirated once or twice a year. However, about 1 month post-hysterectomy (got my ovaries removed too and haven't done any HRT), I had THE WORST case of breast cysts EVER, by far!!

My gyno was surprised, as was the surgeon who aspirated them and fairly exclaimed they were the worst she'd seen me have in the past 11 years (in quantity and size)!

Both docs said it was probably due to hormone fluctuations post-hysterectomy. I had crazy soreness on one side too before I endured the major aspiration when my arm would bump it on the side it was sore. I've had sharp pains occasionally but not pinching or shooting pain with cysts though.

Now that I'm 3 months post-op and that horrible aspiration session was 2 months ago, seems like the cyst situation has primarily calmed down.
