Sudden periods, tender breasts, irritable, cramps. Reason?

I am 53 and have not had a period in 3.5 years. I noticed a couple of days ago my breasts were very tender, and found it very odd like the good old days. I thought no way! And then I thought it felt like when I was pregnant. Then I was driving home yesterday feeling irritable and crampy. It bothered me but life goes on. Then this morning suprise! I got a period. Now the internet is scaring the crap out of me saying it is cancer . I am going to go get checked out but does this happen to woman my age. Can a period come out of the blue. Nothing abnormal about it color wise or anything like that, no discharge to speak of or any pain other than cramps . I just need to know if this is something that can happen to anyone
