Sore nipple: Possibly. You should be evaluated asap by your doctor to rule out a malignancy.

Hope for the best...: ...And plan for the worst. This is probably just an inflammation of your breast. Maybe an infection. It is not a typical presentation of breast cancer. So you do have to see a doctor within the next couple of weeks, but try not to stress too much while proving that this is nothing.
