No, Breast cancer and Cervical cancer are not the same at all. Not least of all because breast cancer is in the BREAST and cervical cancer is in the CERVIX, which are different body parts.

Abnormal cells from other organs don't usually present themselves in a PAP test. But they can. If patient has abnormal cells on PAP test and has history of breast cancer, a pathologist can determine if cells are cervical cells or breast cells. If breast cancer has migrated to cervix, this means the staging of breast cancer would increase. Most likely this isn't the case, and the abnormal cells are cervical related.

Breast Pain and CancerThere is no specific type of breast pain that is a sign that a patient might have breast cancer. Breast cancer does not typically cause breast pain.Virtually all the breast pains that women experience are caused by benign problems. Most of these are caused by fibrocystic breast and hormonal changes.However, you have to be careful when you hear people say that if you have breast pain then, you do not have breast cancer. This is because breast pain and breast cancer can coexist in the same breast, but they are not usually related. In other words one did not cause the other.So, the same woman with breast cancer can have breast pain, just like the same woman with breast cancer can have blue eyes or grey hairs.So, a woman with breast pain is not protected from breast cancer and should still be screened for breast cancer like any other woman.
