Ok.

Thank you for the input.
Pain in breast & tenderness can occur due to a few factors.
It can be hormonal changes.

At this age there can be irregular hormone level.
Non cyclical pain can occur.
You can take Motrin to reduce pain and inflammation.
As it happen before, I would advise to get it examined by doctor.
If doctor thinks necessary, he can advise ultrasonogram, mammogram after examination.
I hope this information will be helpful.

what about the swelling ?

As you are having swelling and pain in both breasts, hormonal change can be the factor.

Growth or tumor can cause such symptoms but it usually affects one breast.
