How to treat breast injury?

Hi I caught my left breast on the bathroom door handle and it has grazed the skin and slightly bruised , it is painful and every so often there is a throbbing pain around the grazed area, I have heard this can cause breast cancer so should I go and get it checked out by a doctor ?

Hi
Hope this message finds you in good health.
I have gone through your complaints and understand your concern.
You seem to have injured your breast soft tissues causing hematoma which generally take around 3-4 weeks time to heel.
But still,it will eventually heal.
Take analgesics,anti-inflammatory tablets,ice packs,rest.
Possibilty of breast cancer is very rare
Nothing to worry about.     
I hope your question has been answered.
If you have any follow-up queries,feel free to consult me anytime.
Thanks,Take care,God bless.
