Hi,
It's really hard to evaluate the real cause of the pain you are experiencing as it can be due to many benign conditions and rarely related to breast cancer.The more common reason for this pain could be due to cyclic hormonal changes,gastric problem or pectoral muscle injury that can happen with certain exercises or arm overuse.
I really doubt that your problem has anything to do with  breast cancer,but you certainly need to see your doctor for a clinical breast exam to find out if you have a breast cyst or a fibroadenoma ( both benign lumps) that could also cause the pain you are describing .
Best wishes...
