Welcome to EmpowHER, and thank you so much for your question.

First of all, I'm sorry you had to have a biopsy on your cervix. I certainly hope that the results are clear; when will you learn what they are?

As for the burning sensation around your nipple, yes, fibroids can cause quite a bit of pain. Have you known that you had fibroids for a while? Or is this the first time you have heard about this? Were they diagnosed through mammography or biopsy?

Did your doctor do an exam when you mentioned the pain?

When the pain began, were you (or are you) just about to have your period? One source I found said that symptoms of fibroids typically worsen before your period and clear up soon afterward.

Is the area warm to the touch?

Here's some more good information about fibroid symptoms:
