More details...: This question is completely out of my field, but you need to provide more information for someone to give you a proper answer. Is it constant, both breasts or just one, location, etc.

Hormones: Most likely, breast pain in an 18 year old is cyclical and related to your hormone cycle. This usually does not require any specific therapy besides anti-inflammatory medication if desired. Fibrocystic change in the breast can explain most symptoms. Non-cyclical pain can be from muscles, joints or trauma to the breast. See your doctor.

See your doctor: It is not uncommon to experience sore breast, but if this has persisted greater than a year, you will need to see your doctor. Soreness can be caused by some medication, certain things in the diet, changes in your weight, health problems, or potentially serious breast concerns, like breast cancer. Your doctor can review your history to help rule out these causes and offer treatment.

Knot: Sounds like this is in the area of your sternum. My first thought would be some irritation where your ribs insert onto your sternum. Other possibilities would be cyst or soft tissue tumor. If the swelling does not resolve probably need checked.

See your doctor: Infection (mastitis) is the most common cause. Uncommonly, a form of breast cancer (inflammatory breast cancer) can present this way.
