Thanks for posting,

According to your description, I may assume that your pain is mild. It could be a neuralgia (unknown origin) or might be an inflammation or maybe coming from your heart (possible coronary artery diseases).
You might need that your breast be examined more closely by a GP.
Given that the pain is very unspecific (not typical to any particular diseases), you will require a doctor to look through. You may take analgesia pain medication to try to relief you from the pain or antispasmodic.

hope this helps

Thank you for the query.Breast pain must be always evaluated by a doctor in early stages.Mammogram should be done in everyone who suffering from breast pain as diseases like mastitis,cysts,breast cancer are more common in women.Some times it may also be just a muscle pain due to wrong posture during sleep but still you have to rule out the other causes.Thank you.
