You are indeed pretty young to be thinking about breast cancer .... breast pain isn't at all unusual and is usually related to hormonal levels and NOT to breast cancer. I do think you are smart to consider seeing your Dr. about this since in any event an examination would be necessary as well as a complete medical history. Be aware that internet information is very general and rarely can be applied to your particular situation. Seeing the Dr. is always the BEST way to get an answer to any symptoms. Make that appointment so you can stop worrying, OK ??
