Usually okay: Depending on your age common to have localized pain in your breast usually cyclical with your period and do to cysts, dilated ducts if redness , marked tenderness, fever then need to rule out abscess. If continues they can do a ultrasound to look at that spot to assure you that you are ok cancers are not tender for the most part.

Depends: If you have breast implants the pain may be related to the implant capsule. If there are no implants, then there could be a multitude of reasons for the pain ranging from cancer to infection to trauma. Regardless of whether you have implants or not, if the pain persists for more than a week then you should consult your physician.
