In brief: Fibrocyctic disease

Caffeinated beverages ( coffeee, soda etc) have been shown to have significant correlation with breast tenderness in the case of fibrocyctic disease of the breast.
Stopping your caffeine intake, may help reduce/relive the breast pain, in general. In addition, you may want to take nsaids for pain relief and also can try cold compress.
