"Breast lump"/pain: Breast masses at age 22 are usually not medically dangerous.

Hormonal imbalance: You need to make sure that you are properly hydrated. Drink enough water so that your urine is colorless.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
