Dear Ms

Going by your short description it does not appear to be alarming.
I would require additional information for me to be able to assist you better

1. How long have the symptoms been present?
2. Is there any relationship of tingling feeling to menstrual cycle?
3. Is the breast tissue soft or lumpy?
4. Is the breast very sensitive to touch?
5. Is the tingling sensation within the breast tissue or below the breast that is in upper abdomen?


Do get back to me with the details.

Take care

Brief Answer:
Likely to be fibroadenosis

Hi
Greetings

Dear Ms

It's unlikely to be a nerve, breast tissue is unlikely to cause any nerve compression.
I hope there is no asymmetry of the breasts.
It look to be more of fibroadenosis of the breast which causes such symptoms.
I would suggest you the following which will be helpful

1. Massage the breast using Olive oil twice a day
2. Hot water fomentation after massage
3. Evening Primerose oil capsules will be very much beneficial.

Do keep me updated

Take care
