Many answers: It could be a cyst, hormone fluctuations! infection (very low chance if not breast feeding), bra too tight; the list is long. One thing to consider if breast pain is a persistent issue is the birth control pill. In the meantime try aleve (naproxen) 1-2 2 x per day if u can take those, don't mix w/ other meds in same class (ibuprfin, aspirin; the NSAID class). It should help but it's not gonna be cancer.
