Pain in the nipple area

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?

breast is a fibro fatty tissue and dull pain is a common thing. please remember that in early stages cancer doesnt cause pain, so remove the cancer thing from her mind. you can try taking cap. primrose oil, thats a good tablet with micronutrients for breast health

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.
