The University of Portsmouth is currently undertaking qualitative research into the prevalence of breast pain within the female population. We are asking for your help in finding participants to complete the following online questionnaire. The questionnaire takes no longer than 5 minutes to complete. Please could you either complete the questionnaire and/or forward this email on to anyone that you feel might be able to participate.

Breast pain is a common complaint in women (Rayan et al., 2003), yet the rate of incidence is inadequately documented. Previous biomechanical studies have associated breast pain with excessive movement, particularly in regards to vertical displacement of the breast tissue (Mason et al., 1999: McGhee, Steele & Power, 2007). Lorentzen and Lawson (1987) stated that 56% of the 59 women asked had experienced breast pain and discomfort during exercise.
