Is soreness in breast sign of breast cancer?

Hello Doctor, I am Perl Balilo. I'm 32, 162 cm., 81 kgs. Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer. My problem is that I feel that my left nipple is bitten by an ant whenever I'm showering and water hits my left nipple directly. It's been going on for a month already. What could be causing this? Thank you

hi dear Perl.
your question is too small to elaborate your problem.
your worry about cancer is appreciated considering your strong family history.
the nipple or skin of breast may have many sort of lesions. usually these are benign lesions. the most worrisome is pagets disease of nipple, which is a premalignant. so please go to a dermatologist and have consultation with him.
