I am only 23, but my mother had breast cancer in her mid-thirties so I am very concious about things that can increase breast cancer risk. My questions is: I have never had ANY soreness in my breasts, does this in any way mean my breasts are not reacting the way most do during menstruation and could this be linked to breast cancer in any way? I have just learned recently that very many women have soreness or pain in their breasts during/before periods. ALSO... I have white pockets of puss (like tiny white heads) around my nipples. Is this abnormal -- should I be concerned at all?
