Thanks for the query.

The possible causes for your symptoms are,
-Breast pain is called mastalgia, it can be usually due to hormonal or benign breast conditions, the pain could be cyclical or non cyclical,
In cyclical pain, it can be seen before periods, and also body pains, fatigue etc can also be seen in premenstrual syndrome,
-In case of infection of breast called mastitis, breast pain and because of inflammatory reactions body pains, head ache etc can be seen.

as turning of benign tumor into malignancy is rare, you don't afraid of that,
once consult general surgeon and undergo physical examination and mammogram to detect the possible cause of pain, then treatment can be taken accordingly.
