I am 24 and for the past 9 weeks experienced sore breasts. This usually happens on a monthly basis but has been constant for many weeks. (I am not preggies). Every single gland is hard and swollen - It feels like I have run a marathon without a sportsbra!

I have a fantastic job but it is very stressful etc - could this be stress related?

Ouch, I suppose it might be due to stress, but it wouldn’t be my first guess. It is more likely to be due to hormones or inflammation and the best would be to see a surgeon about it. Good luck.
