My left nipple has been extremely itchy the past couple weeks. Also my breast has been tender across the bottom and have been getting sharp burning pains every so often. I haven't used any new detergents or soaps or lotions. No new bras or clothing. There is no rash and no unusual lumps that I've noticed. No discharge or changes in breast size. I'm not pregnant (I have 4 children and had my tubes tied over a year ago) and I'm 31 years old with an extensive family history of cancer with only one (non immediate) family member with breast cancer. Could this be breast cancer?
