Ummm . . . you only have one what?  One breast?  Why?  Breast cancer?  Your breast can become swollen & tender in response to estrogen.  But I would expect you to notice this cyclically then.  Your breast could also become swollen & tender if you were lactating but then developed mastitis which is an infection of your milk glands.  Another reason for swelling & tenderness is inflammatory breast cancer.  Best to go see your family doctor for an examination.  Good luck!
