BACKGROUND: Breast pain may be cyclic or non-cyclic,focal or diffuse. Cyclic pain is thought to be due to hormonal changes, is usually bilateral and more in the upper and outer quadrants.Non-cyclic,focal pain is due to breast diseases,mostly benign. Role of imaging techniques like mammography and ultrasonography, in palpable breast lumps have been proven, however their role in cases of mastalgia alone is still a matter of research.
