Breast pain, also known as mastalgia, is a common concern among women of all ages. While breast pain is often benign and temporary, it can cause significant discomfort and anxiety. At Phoenix Ultrasound, with branches in Surrey/Banstead and Central London, we recognize the importance of addressing breast pain promptly and accurately. In this article, we’ll explore the role of ultrasound in evaluating breast pain and providing clarity and relief to patients.

Understanding Breast Pain:

Breast pain can manifest as a dull ache, sharp stabbing sensation, or tenderness in one or both breasts. The pain may be cyclic, occurring in conjunction with hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle, or non-cyclic, unrelated to hormonal fluctuations. Causes of breast pain can vary and may include hormonal changes, breast cysts, fibrocystic changes, inflammation, injury, or even stress.

The Importance of Ultrasound in Evaluating Breast Pain:

Ultrasound imaging is a valuable tool in assessing breast pain, as it allows for a detailed evaluation of breast tissue without exposing patients to radiation. During a breast ultrasound, sound waves are used to create real-time images of the breast, providing valuable information about the structure and composition of the breast tissue.

At Phoenix Ultrasound, our experienced sonographers perform breast ultrasound examinations with precision and care. Using advanced ultrasound technology, we can visualize various aspects of the breast, including:

  1. Detecting breast cysts: Ultrasound can identify fluid-filled sacs within the breast tissue, known as cysts, which may be a source of breast pain.
  2. Assessing breast tissue: Ultrasound can evaluate the density and texture of breast tissue, helping to identify any abnormalities or areas of concern.
  3. Guiding interventions: In some cases, ultrasound may be used to guide minimally invasive procedures, such as cyst aspiration or biopsy, to provide further diagnostic clarity.
