It can be a symptom of such, but it is more common a symptom of several other conditions. Get an evaluation to be sure of what is causing any breast pain.

As a general rule breast cancer is not painful, and pain does not mean cancer; however, there exceptions to the rule. Inflammatory breast cancer can often be pain.

Inflammatory breast cancer is a "clinical diagnosis", meaning it is diagnosed based on the appearance of the breast - classically warm, red, with skin thickening, mimicking infection. It is often tender, but not always.
