Painful Breast Left Breast Lump

I have been having sharp burning pains in the left breast since January 2008. Sometimes feeling like stabbing pains that would make me wince with pain. I am 45 and had a hysterectomy after the birth of my last child in 1987 so it is not pre menstration related. In April I can feel swelling, thickening ropey like area in the breast and it's very tender to touch. It's on the side of the breast facing my armpit. When I move the breast I can feel pain and I'm aware of it all of the time. My other side of the breast feels nothing the left side. Does anyone know what could be? I
