Mastalgia in Children

  • Overview

    Mastalgia is breast pain. It’s generally classified as either cyclical (associated with menstrual periods) or noncyclical.

    • Noncyclical pain may come from the breast or may come from somewhere else, such as nearby muscles or joints.
    • Pain can range from minor discomfort to severely incapacitating pain.
    • Many women with mastalgia worry more about the fear of cancer than about the pain itself.
