Breast pain is a very common and vague problem. It's mostly associated with stress menstrual disturbance hormonal disturbance or very rarely advanced stage of breast cancer.
if you are over 40 yrs of age pl do mammogram . if there is a family history of breast colon or ovarian cancer pl do either ultrasound or mammogram . if all is fine you may try taking cap of oil of evening primrose 1000 mg twice daily for a month. Some stress bursting exercise is recommended.

one harder than other could be due to infection or rarely trauma or very rarely cancer. Other signs of cancer may be uneven sizes, skin redness puckering nipple discharge etc
