Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem but I am glad that you are seeking medical attention for the same. Breast cancer usually presents as a painful lump in the breast and painful enlargement of the breast is usually not a sign of breast cancer. There might be still be a small chance that this could be something suspicious. To rule that out you should have this problem evaluated by a breast/ general surgeon. Also you need to have an ultrasound of the breast for better evaluation of the lump.

Please feel free to ask any other query or share your USG report.

Your symptoms are not suggestive of breast cancer. Your back pain may be due to muscle spasm. Anyway you should be examined by a general surgeon. Sonogram of breast may be helpful, do not worry it is not likely to be breast cancer. take care.
