This is Dr. David
breast cancer doesn't typically cause pain in the breast
pain in the breast is usually due to a pulled pectoralis muscle
or a breast infection like mastitis
heavy lifting or pushing or pulling can cause a pulled or strained or torn pectoralis muscle behind the breast which can cause pain.
how old are you?
you should get a chest CT scan to look for pulled muscles in your chest, and other causes of pain your breast.
it sounds like you have pulled this muscle again.
it could be a more serious strain.
you should get a scan of that muscle.
you might need treatment for a torn or strained muscle in your chest
this doesn't sound like breast cancer.
