I'm 18 years old A few days ago I noticed

Patient

Q: I'm 18 years old. A few days ago I noticed my left breast started to feel tender and since this morning I've been getting a sharp stabbing pain near my nipple but inside the breast. It started off happening every hour or so with mild pain and now it's every few minutes/seconds and my nipple has gone quite red. I'm not sure of what this could be and when I looked for answers on the net, it kept coming up with breast cancer. I'm quite worried, please give me some advice! Also I'd like to add in that my mother was diagnosed with invasive ductual carcinoma 5 months ago and is busy with chemo and has had her breast removed.
