Hi, I'm 24 years old. For the past one week, my left breast pains and it is hard. The pain is around the nipple area and only in my left breast and there are boil like spots around. My father had lymph cancer. So, am I in risk for any type of cancer? Please advise.

Males and females are both born with breast tissue and mammary glands. Breast cancer is a very rare cause of breast pain in males, but chances are high in female, though the condition may be more common than you might think. You may hit by breast cancer if it in your family history more discussion is required if you feel it is severe or abnormal.
