tiny painful lumps on side of breast

I have small lumps (like rice under the skin) on the outside of my left breast & up into my arm pit they are extremely painful. It hurts to raise my arm up and to even wear a bra as it pressures both places. Same in right nipple & around the aerola? I only drink 2 cups of coffee in the morn, no pop at all water it is. So what would this be & what should I do? Did I mention Painful !

I would advise you to make an appointment with your Dr. (Primary Care Physician) OR your GYN for a breast exam and any testing that he/she may think appropriate. From your description I really have no opinion as to what these "rice like" lumps could be but they definitely need to be investigated.  Regards
