Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • Mild, occasional breast pain can often be treated at home.
  • OTC pain relievers can help discomfort.

When you may need a provider

  • Breast pain is severe, occurs frequently, or doesn’t go away.
  • You have additional symptoms like fever, chills, breast discoloration, nipple discharge, or a mass.
  • A follow-up visit to assess your breast pain can be scheduled via telehealth. But the initial visits for breast pain would be better diagnosed and treated in person.
