Breast tenderness

A number of morphological and structural changes take place in the breasts throughout a woman's life. During the reproductive age, in the days before menstruation for example, or during the first trimester  of pregnancy or during breast-feeding, it is common for women to report breast pain or mastalgia, associated with breast turgidity or tenderness, increased size and sensitivity.


About 70% of women under 55 years of age have suffered from breast pain at some time. Cyclic mastalgia or mastodynia is the most common, accounting for 60-70% of the cases.


Women with mastodynia suffer from disturbed sleep and many have a reduced quality of life.
