In brief: See below.

Although not typical for breast cancer, and even though you are under 40, as you have a first degree relative with breast cancer, you should obtain a mammogram, and possible ultrasound.

In brief: Burning chest pain

Your symptoms do not sound like the typical presentation for breast cancer.
You were wise to get checked for BRCA I&II. Please see your doctor. You need to be examined. Your pain sounds musculoskeletal to me. Best of luck.
