Hello I am 21 years girl and I had once pain in breast an since last 2 days its hard around nipples what should I do an is it a symptom of breast cancer?

Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month but you can feel some hardness so you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Cancer 'usually' does not occur at this age, it may be an infection, see a doctor.
