Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for your symptoms without examining you. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and further investigations to confirm the cause. You might need to go ahead with getting a screening Mammogram done. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by examination and investigation results. Be in regular follow-up with your doctor/gynecologist for monitoring.
