From what you describe,this doesn't sound at all like breast cancer... The discomfort is most likely due to a pulled chest muscle or perhaps a fractured rib when you fell over the curb. I would advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible to conduct a physical examination.He/she might order an x-ray to find out if your ribs have been injured. In the meantime you could take some over the counter pain medication until you see your doctor.
Take care...
