Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. The symptoms which you have described are quite common in females and they usually get them just before their periods. These are due to hormonal fluctuations in the breast tissue and they subside in a few months and are usually not a sign of cancer.
If they are bothering you a lot, you can get an ultrasound of the breasts and review with a breast surgeon.

Hoping for the best.
