Most likely not : It does depend on ones age, menstrual status, personal medical history, and family history. Best is to see your doctor, have a mammogram and ultrasound. If a problem is identified-many times they can do a needle biopsy there-or refer to a surgeon for excisional biopsy

Yes: Breast pain in not a common symptom of breast cancer. However discuss these symptoms with your primary care physician.

A 20-year-old female asked:

Pain in both breasts, especially right breast and new bumps on nipple how likely is this to be cancer and what else could it be?

CANCER DOUBTFUL: Breast cancer is usually not tender. Since both breasts are tender i suspect this is some degree of fibrocystic change. Now, i'm not sure what to make of new blemishes on the nipple, but, again, highly unlikely this is a cancerous process. Just discuss this with your doctor. Good luck.
