Breast pain - worried


Q: Hi. I've recently starting having some breast pain. It's not a sharp pain but just a dull aching pain in the lower part of my right breast when I poke it. I had some pain a few days ago in both breasts but now it just feels like it's in the right one. It also feels slightly lumpy. I never usually have breast pain right before my period. My last period started 18 days ago and it was very short (like 3 days) and it usually is around 5-6 days. I'm due for my next period next week. Is it possible that I might be pregnant? Can pregnancy cause pain in just ONE breast?? I've also had some migraines over the last two weeks out of nowhere. But this breast pain is starting to concern me. And I don't want to get my hopes up at the chance of being pregnant if it's not even possible. Please help. Thank you.
