Menopause and breast pain - causes and solutions during the menopause
I am new to this Found it from a google search. The last three days I am experiencing tenderness and swollen breast both just like when I had PMS symptoms all my life. I feel like I want to put ice packs on them! I have taken Alieve and Tylenol etc and help a little but this am they are I have not had my period in almost three years and these symptoms also. What's going on? Has this happened to anyone else.
Back to Healthy body. As you get older, it's natural for your breasts to lose their firmness, change shape, shrink in size and become more prone to certain abnormal lumps. In most cases, breast lumps are harmless, but whatever your age, it's important that you report any new lumps to your doctor. It's normal for breast tissue to become less glandular and more fatty as you get older, which makes them feel less firm and full. These are often harmless breast lumps , like cysts, but they can also be a sign of serious conditions like breast cancer.
Running for the bus, up the stairs, or pretty much anywhere, makes you cup your sore and throbbing breasts. Before a period, extra fluid can make your breasts tender, but now erratic periods, and hormone changes, mean your breasts can feel heavy, painful and lumpy pretty much anytime. Non-cyclical breast pain is more common in postmenopausal women.
