  • I suspect that pain in the breast does not indicate cancer. You should be doing a monthly self exam. Get to know your breasts so an unusual lump would be noticed. So I'd say don't worry, but it would be a good idea to get checked just in case. Call your gyn and go in, and be sure to bring up the family history and your fears. Good luck! I wonder if you'd post a follow up so we know how you are?

  • I would be more concerned for heart issues. That was my only pain and now they are saying something is wrong with my heart. THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT, so don't freak....but I think it is worth getting it checked.
