Hi,thanks for query.The breast has got a tail which is going towards axilla.In case of infection or more pressure on breast this can happen.the pain is because of swelling.You can apply some analgesic over it and can take analgesic tablet also.In case of more pain and fever you need to see your doctor.bye.
