Sore spot in breast, no lumps. Family history of breast cancer. History of hysterectomy. Possibilities?

Hi, I am 59 y/o w/f. For over a month, I have been having a sore spot in my right breast. it is on the side, sort of above my rib cage. I do not feel any lumps.' There is not any hx of breast cancer on my maternal side, but there is on my paternal side. I had a mammogram Oct 2010 and it was good. I had a complete hysterectomy in 2005. What possibilities are there for this?

The cancer lesion is not painful unless has secondary infection.The spot you refer is painful ,so lesser chance of cancer.
It can result due to weakness of ribs ( Calcium defficiensy, Vit. D defficiensy)
The paternal family history has same significance . So It's better to be alert & careful. Get regular check ups by a specialist.& also mammography as advised.( once a year)
Self assessment by palpation of breast every 15 days is important.
The indication for complete hysterectomy needs consideration.
