I think I have Breast Cancer at 21

I have been experiencing terrible pain in my left breast for months now. It’s a sharp pain on the very left side near the bottom of the breast. Huge veins started to appear and one is running across my nipple. It’s a lot bigger than my right one and it’s noticeable even when I’m wearing a shirt.  I went to a breast specialist and she kept giving me vitamins saying I’m too young for cancer. The odd thing is the pain will stay for months and then it’ll go away for a bit. I’m not pregnant and never have been. I’m going to another specialist in 2 weeks but I just don’t know what to do anymore. I’m tired of being in pain. I have no idea about my family history on it due to me being adopted.
