Fibrocystic breasts change, is very common and it's a benign condition and affects more than 60% of women.The condition primarily affects women between the ages of 30 and 50 and can affect one or both breasts.Usually this condition tends to become less of a problem after menopause.  
In some women, the symptoms of fibrocystic breast condition can be very mild with minimal breast tenderness or pain,while in other women,the pain and tenderness can be more severe and constant even when no lumps can be felt when the breasts are examined by her doctor.
These changes are mainly caused by hormonal changes in the body particularly if you are on birth control pills,have gained weight,or maybe wearing a bra that doesn't fit properly.
To help reduce breast pain try wearing a good supportive bra to reduce breast movement. Many women with breast pain find it comfortable to also wear a bra while they sleep.
Try to reduce caffeine intake (coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate).
Maintain a low fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables, losing excess weight may reduce breast pain by stabilizing hormone levels.
I really wouldn't worry about breast cancer,since this disease is almost never associated with pain.
However it would be best to mention this pain to your doctor to see if more investigation is needed.An Ultrasound would be of value to make sure that your breasts are healthy and really nothing to worry about.
Wishing you all the best.
