Welcome to Justanswer website.
Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today. Please provide me the following information so that I can address your concern appropriately.

For how long she has this problem?
Does she has any discharge/swelling in breast?
Is she on any medications?

For 1 month little swelling no medications
Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.

Pain and swelling in both breasts is usually due to hormonal factors.It can occur with stress, infections, ovarian disorders. She may be having hormonal imbalance and have to be checked by blood test.
Other possibility is nerve compression or inflammation of the cartilage joining ribs to chest bone.

To treat this condition doctor advise for medications. These are-
-Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like- Motrin, Naproxen ,Aleve.
-Antidepressants, specifically tricyclic antidepressants, are very helpful.
-Muscle relaxants, are also very helpful in such cases.
Your doctor can advise for Chest X-ray to rule out any other possibility.A clinical examination, blood tests, ultrasound of breast can be considered for diagnosis.
I suggest, that she should be seen by doctor for clinical evaluation and get this issue managed.
