Hi Anonymous,

Symptoms of cancer include: 

  • A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area or in the neck
  • A change in the size or shape of the breast
  • Nipple discharge or tenderness, or the nipple pulled back (inverted) into the breast
  • Ridges or pitting of the breast skin (like the skin of an orange)
  • A change in the way the skin of the breast, areola, or nipple looks or feels (for example, warm, swollen, red, or scaly)


Breast pain alone is usually not indicative of cancer, it is mainly accompanied by breast lumps. 

You may suffer from something known as Mastalgia-- which can be cyclic pain (during your monthly cycle) or non-cyclic and not following a specific pattern.  

  • Noncyclic pain is most common in women 30 to 50 years of age. It may occur in only one breast. It is often described as a sharp, burning pain that occurs in one area of a breast. Occasionally, noncyclic pain may be caused by a fibroadenomaor a cyst. If the cause of noncyclic pain can be identified, treating the cause may relieve the pain.

Breast pain can get worse with changes in your hormone levels or changes in the medicines you are taking. Stress can also affect breast pain. You are more likely to have breast pain before menopause than after menopause.

For peace of mind, please see your doctor and get a proper diagnosis and also to look into why you are only getting 1 day periods (assuming you are not going through menopause).
