Breast pain: You are young. The risk of cancer is low. More likely can be fibrocystic breast changes that can wax and wane based on caffeine intake or hormones. See your primary care for an exam. Hidadrenitis supporativa can cause nodular areas of the axillary breast (underarm) tissues. These can be swollen and drain.
