Answer

Pain that people describe as "burning" is sometimes associated with nerve pain. You might have something pressing on a nerve, maybe a tight bra? If your breasts are still growing, the pain might be caused by stretching skin and tissue. Even if you are finished with puberty, weight gain can have a similar effect. This article on breast pain will give you some guidelines about how to evaluate whether you need to see a doctor right away. If the pain just started, just observe it for a while and see if it goes away when your period begins. Let your mom or another adult know. She can help you decide whether you need to see a doctor that needs a doctor's attention. Sometimes breast pain is a sign of infection or other underlying problem. Most breast cancer tumors do not hurt, and breast cancer is so rare among women your age as to be almost non-existent, so you should not waste a minute worrying about breast cancer. It's great that you are aware of breast changes. Do check with a doctor if the pain persists or gets worse.
