Can breasts be tender after menopause?

Hello, I have an unusual problem. For the past week, my nipples have been really sore for no apparent reason. I am 55 and have not gotten a my period in nearly 5 years. I have had a cold or allergies for almost 2 weeks, I am wondering if this is why i have the problem or if it could possibly something horrible like cancer.
