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.

Breast pain sources: Since this is on one side, make sure that there was not breast trauma by "bumping into a car door" for example. Make sure that there is no "lump" by self-examination and if so go directly to the md-( do not pass go).
