Thank you. And have you had mammograms before?

Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 18 days ago.

Breast pain can often be due to underlying muscles. However breast pain that lasts more than a month should be assessed with an examination to ensure there are no lumps and to discuss if a mammogram is worth having/ultrasound to ensure all is okay.

I would ask your GP about this, they can refer you if they feel this is required.
