Pain in right side of my right breast!

I’m a 19yr old female. I’ve been experiencing pain in my right breast. Feels like it might be coming from the right side? But I can’t exactly pin point the exact location. It’s like a sharp burning pain that comes and goes every few seconds. I’m not pregnant, period isn’t due for 3 weeks ish. It definitely is a noticeable pain though. I haven’t felt any lumps but I also don’t know exactly how to check. Any thoughts?

Hello there.  Breasts are great and a pain both. Sigh.  Please know that most of the time, breast pain is nothing serious and nothing to do with cancer or anything like that. Pain in breasts, as you know, is often related to our cycle but not always.  Here are the symptoms of non cyclic breast pain:
Unrelated to the menstrual cycle
Described as tight, burning, stabbing or aching sensation
Constant or intermittent
Usually affects one breast, in a localized area, but may spread more diffusely across the breast

Sounds like your symptoms. There are several reasons why this can happen even including having too much caffeine. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/breast-pain/symptoms-causes/syc-20350423

What's your bra like? Is it supportive? That's a question sometimes asked.  Pain also can be coming from the chest wall and not the breast itself.This can be due to an injury or inflammation. Are you taking any medications? https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/breast-pain-10-reasons-your-breasts-may-hurt

Copy and paste those links and let me know what you think.

This link tells you exactly how to do a breast self exam. Do them every month from now on. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diagnostics/3990-breast-self-exam
