breast ache

Recently, I have noticed discomfort in my left breast.  A dull ache that comes and goes.  I have had this for about a week now.  If I press on the breast tissue there is no one area I can pin point.  It is strange it feels cold, then sometimes some burning.  I am hoping this is cystic in nature, and not breast cancer symptoms.

The reason of breast pain could be many things.but it's rarely associated with beast cancer.It could be,as you say, Fibrocystic changes or other benign findings, but it's impossible to really know for sure without a physician ordering some tests to confirm these changes.
When we reach the age of 40 we are supposed to have every one/two years mammograms tests and I hope that you have been recommended by your doctor to do so.
Wishing you all the best..
