My sister has overcome anxiety disorder by her own n still she is fighting. But she has read somewhere that sharp pain can be caused by breast cancer , As she is anxious creature n overthinker , she is having mild pain around her nipple, left or right occasionally in a month or two ! And she also has a lump in right one around nipple area but it's not cancerous as it has been now 4 years of having it n it looks like benign.now pain around this area is a sign of breast cancer?

Hi normally breast cancer is uncommon in young patients. Still better to get a breast examination done with your gynec. The doctor should be able to treat the same.
