  • Is it around the nipple area? Like a swollen milk gland or something?

  • When you have your OB appt, make sure to bring it up if you are still having problems. When you are preg. hormones are crazy and all kinds of "odd" things can happen. If it becomes larger, or the pain gets worse, or the area around it becomes hard and firm then call your OB right away. That is a good sign of infection.

    I wish you the best. Try a hot shower to help the soreness.

  • You probably should be worried - but not of cancer - of infection or a cyst. Cancer lumps are VERY VERY VERY RARELY PAINFUL!!! That is part of the reason women must self exame every month - otherwise we wouldn't know until maybe too late. I'll bet ya thatu have an infection of some sort and any infection in a preg womans body during anytime of her preg. can be dangerous - including premature labor and other risks. Check it out w/ ur doc. Its probably very easy to treat
