How Healthy Are Your Breasts?

Culprit #4: You're overdoing it at the gym.

If you've lifted too much weight, you may have strained your pectoralis muscles, which lie just underneath your breasts. The best treatment is a heating pad and an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen. If the pain is located right over your breastbone and worsens with activity, you may have costochondritis, often caused by intense exercise, an inflammation in the area where your ribs and breast bone connect. Again, try ibuprofen. If the pain is severe, consult your doctor.
