In brief: Could be many things

Hormonal changes during your menstrual cycle and fibrocystic breast changes (lumpy, tender breasts) are common causes of breast pain.
Pregnancy is another common cause, along with hormone replacement, large breasts, cysts, infection & inflammation. And sometimes what may seem to originate from the breast may actually be pain from somewhere else. If you suffer from breast pain, see your doctor.
