Dark patch on left breast, pain on breathing. Family history of breast cancer. Cure?

Hi, literally just this morning I noticed a very small, slightly dark patch just to the left of my left breast. Throughout the day everytime I breathe in deeply it causes a little pain. I am slightly worried as both my mother and grandmother died of Breast Cancer . I am only 14, but I am on my period as well, could this be related? Thank you for your help.

Hi Lauren, generally patches and minimal pain is not associated with the cancer but best is to get examined from the expert. And if necessary biopsy of the patch. Take care

Yes, one more thing. You will need to do mammogram yearly starting at the age of 30. Bye.
