Can a swollen lymph gland and aching around the breast mean cancer?

Not necessarily: An enlarged painful lymph gland is more indicative of an infection. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation. See this site for signs of breast cancer. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/breast-cancer/ds00328/dsection=symptoms.
