No. They have in common the same symptoms -none --that is what makes this cancer difficult to initially detect, but share the same signs - mass, inverted nipple, breast skin dimpling or redness, bloody or clear nipple discharge, nipple ulceration.

I ve small pain in my left breast, left armpit & back (left side). Can dis b a symptom of breast cancer (no cancer history in my family) I am 21 female?

Highly Unlikely. Sorting out different causes of breast pain starts with determining if the pain is coming from the breast tissue or the chest wall. Favoring the former includes variation w/menstrual cycle; favoring the latter is relation to activity and post-menopausal state. I recommend that you see your gyne or primary care dr. To help sort thru this. Good luck.
Very unlikely. It would be extremely unusual, but not impossible, for this to be a breast cancer. Any persistent symptom in the breast, and certainly any mass, should be examined by a doctor. You may need to have an ultrasound of the area done. It is always better to look into these things than ignore them.
Probably not. Pain is not a common symptom of breast cancer. Additional it would be rare of a 20 year to develop breast cancer. However you should see your primary care physician to report these symptoms.

Not so difficult to. It is not difficult to tell the cause of your pain. If you have good insurance, then your doctor can order tests besides doing a good examination of your breast by physical exam and mammography. Bone scan is a good test to make sure that your bones are free of cancer. Please discuss these options with your doctor and get over this anxiety!
