In brief: Heart disease

Depending on your age and risk factors, the symptoms you described are more likely to be due to cardio-vascular disease than breast cancer.
Please note that heart disease kills more women than breast cancer. See your doctor asap.

In brief: It's Possible.

While breast cancer can cause pain, most people with breast pain don't have cancer. This is best sorted out by a doctor who can take a thorough medical history, do a careful exam, and possibly order a mammogram and/or ultrasound, depending on your age and the above results.
Ideally, they can then alleviate your concerns and actually treat the pain. I suggest you make an appt w/your pcp or gyne.

While other things also can give you the same problems- such muskuloskeletal related pain, inflammation etc- cancer could be and would be on the differential diagnosis to rule out.
Please see your doctor and have a proper breast examination. A mammogram plus minus sonogram may need to be done- as indicated. Good luck.
