Is A Dull Aching Pain In And Around The Breast And Down The Side Of The Chest, A Sign Of Cancer?

a dull aching pain in and around the breast area, that won't go away

Answer

Is this your left or right side? Chest pain on the left side could be heart-related. Sometimes pain we feel in our breast actually starts somewhere else. As PJ suggests, checking with a doctor would be a good idea for any pain that isn't getting better.
