GP Breast Pain Guideline

Breast pain is very common and can cause worry but is not usually a symptom of breast cancer. This guideline has been developed for GPs to use to manage mastalgia among pre-menopausal women who have a normal clinical breast examination and no evidence of a discrete lump. The booklet should be used as an educational tool by women, identified by their GP, who have presented with breast pain and have a completely normal breast examination. The booklet has a Pain Chart on the back page for completion.
