Suggest treatment for pain in breast

Hello, I m an 18 year old female living in Canada. I m 5 5 and 145 pounds. I ve been experiencing a sharp pain in my left breast for over 3 months now. For the first 3 weeks the pain felt more on the surface of the breast, like in the skin; But after that the pain has transferred what feels to be deeper and deeper into my breast. For the past month it has felt very deep in my chest. Sometimes, I even experience it across my whole chest, and sometimes, right in the middle of my chest. I haven t been really active lately, so I am highly doubtful of some sort of muscle strain. I also have been on birth control for 2 years now, and have been smoking for those 2 years, up until a month into when the chest pain began. The pain comes and goes. It can last from under a minute, to 5 minutes, occurring anywhere from 1-10 times a day. It happens at least once a day. Nothing seems to trigger it, it comes randomly, though the pain does becomes stronger when breathing deeply. I m wanting to know what possible things it could be. I ve been doing some research, and thankfully, it appears that sharp pain in a breast is not associated with breast cancer. Though I am worried about the fact that I ve been smoking cigarettes while on my birth control pill (Brand: Apri 28). I ve heard that has some nasty consequences. I ve been smoking for about 3 years, smoking about 1/2 a pack per day. I would also like to mention that there is a coarse hair that grows out of my areola on that breast, that I pluck whenever I notice it. It doesn t grow out from the skin around my areola, it grows from my areola. On the pink part. Just thought I should add that as well since I thought that was a bit unusual. It grows from the same place every time, and that has been the ONLY hair. Please get back to me ASAP. thank you for your time.

Smoking is absolute contraindication to use pills it causes thrombosis any where in the body.get heart checkup and completely stop smoking your too young u have beutiful life waiting for u.its better if you use othee methods of contraception such as barrier method.regarding areolar hair its perfectly normal there will be hair follicles in aroela even if you pluck the hair again grows from the follicle.
