    What could be causing a sudden burning sensation in both nipples?  There is no way I can be pregnant and my last cycle started on April 1st so it's not time for that yet.  I'm 26 yrs old.

    This sounds hormonal; burning in both nipples simultaneously wouldn't be a breast cancer symptom. Since this is about the middle of your cycle, it might signal ovulation. Or, it might be something external - have you changed your shower gel or laundry soap recently? Bought a new bra, perhaps? Whatever it is, hopefully it'll abate soon. But, as always - if it gets worse or doesn't disappear within a month, best to see your doctor for help, OK? Good luck - PJH

      Thank you for your help!  I didn't change detergents or shower gel but I have been exercising a lot more and wearing sports bras while exercising.  I did get a new bra recently too.  I feel better now that is probably just hormonal.  I've never had anything like before so I was a little concerned.  If it doesn't go away then I will go see my doctor.  Thank you again for the help.
