Pls help me, Do I have Breast Cancer already?

I seek medical help regarding my condition. I am an Asian Girl from Philippines. On my early age, my breast was augmented twice with the procedure of collagen injection. And now I have felt a lot of lumps on both of my breast. I went to my obygne for a checkup my breast early last year. She advised me to undergo an ultrasound which I followed and from there she saw a lot lumps on my breast. She had tried the needle biopsy and took something on a certain lump from my breast which resulted to a non malignant cyst. However I am still worried until now because the lumps in my breast are still there. My breast sometimes are both tender and painful also and some part are hard to touch. I haven't tried a mamogram method but do you think that this will help me know if i had a breast cancer? I am afraid to for this kind of procedure and it might be very expensive as well. I hope you could give me an advise in my problem. Thank you so much to all of those concern people.

I am 29 yrs old and I cant help but to worry about my condition. Specially whenever i felt mild pain on both of my breast. It seems that  from my shoulder to my armpit seems to be exhausted and tired.

I dont have any nipple discharge, however whenever i squeeze my nipple there is a milk (but oily) coming out from the nipple. I can't determine if my nipple was retracted or it is becoming inverted. Although there are little bumps or like little acne from the side of the areola.

I also have many small little arm pit lymph nodes. My breast are thick, sore and hurts under my armpits.

I am really worried about it. I never tried mamogram since in our place I can hardly find a hospital who has this kind of test. Usually they do ultrasound and the needle biopsy. I have to go the main city which is in Manila, just to find this kind of test.

My mom (46 yrs old), has undergone this surgery from a certain hospital in our place. And they remove the lumps in her breast but not totally the whole breast. Actually She had undergone to a surgery twice. Because there are new lumps in her breast after a year of the surgery. And now she has another big lump again on her left breast. The lumps that were removed before were all benign and not cancerous. They are like a cyst.

But I remembered that when my OB had these needle biopsy, the sample that she got from the lumps was oily and clear. It is like an oil which can be the collagen I said. And she also thought that it would be also possible that it is also the collagen that was injected to my breast.

What do you think about my condition?
