If you have no other symptoms and the fact that it involves both breasts I doubt this is in any way related to Breast Cancer. Breast tenderness isn't particularly unusual in women of almost any age. I would advise you to make an appointment with your family Physician for a clinical breast exam and some investigation as to what may be causing this problem. Since you mention pain in the axillary areas also I'm wondering if this could possibly be a skin issue. At any rate it's always best to see your Dr.and find out a definite cause.  Regards ....
