In brief: See a doctor

Breast pain can be due to a number of things: cysts, associated with menstrual cycle, superficial thrombophlebitis of veins (mondor's dz).
If the pain is persisting, see a general surgeon, breast surgeon for evaluation.

In brief: Veins on the breast?

If you mean sore veins just under the surface of the skin of the breasts, it could be mondor's disease, a rare thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins of the breast that causes pain and redness.
This is a benign condition that is treated with warm compresses and anti-inflammatory drugs like aleve (naproxen). If it does not get better or if there is a new mass present, though, you should see your doctor.
