Ask the Nurse

What would be the reason for when your breast is tingling and you are not having a menstrual cycle?

Breast tingling or breast pain (mastalgia) can be from hormonal fluctuations, changes in fatty acids in diet, breast ductal spasm, or breast cysts.

  • Wear a good support bra.
  • Reduce caffeine intake.
  • Avoid excessive omega 3 fish oils.
  • You can use over the counter aspercreme topically for breast pain.

See your physician for an exam, follow up and imaging if needed.

All My Best,
