Brief Answer:
Can be a muscular pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The mild pain in the breast area in males can be a muscular pain due to excessive physical work. In case it is associated with a local swelling then an infection needs to be ruled out.
Such minor pain usually subsides with rest, mild pain killer and a hot compress. In case the pain is persistent then do consult a physician for a physical examination.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
