There are many causes of mastalgia ( pain in breast) like breat abscess, mastitis, fat necrosis etc.

My advice for you is have a consultation with general surgeons so that he can look on to it . In the mean time you can start on pain killers like acetminophen, brufen and multivitamin containing vitamin A, C, E, B6. Antibiotic like cephradine may be require if you notice fever. Avoid caffeine, chocolates and certain caffeine containing soft drinks.
some other treatment is also avilable but that is only recomended after a doctor has seen you physically.

I hope I answer your question and it is informative for you.If you have any other query you are most well come.Thanks.
