I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> which has spread across into the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> and a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the shoulder and arm. It just started when i was sitting chatting to my mother so i know its not a strain. I had a total hystorctomy when i was 32 (9 years ago) I did take HRT but i stopped it of my own accord. I have had the pain for three days now (it wakes me up at night too) I take some painkillers for this but it does not take the pain away completly.
I have been having a dull pain in my left armpit for a few months, and aches in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. On occassions, I would feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. I saw my PCP <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> November, and she suggested that I cut down on caffiene. I saw my gyn today and described my symptoms, after a breast exam, she though she felt a thickening in both breasts, but a little more in my left. The thickening is between the right and the left breast, and was tender to touch. I go for my mammogram and ultrasound on 1/23.
i have the same problem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> under the right arm and front right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> area also a certain point in the back next to thwe right shoulder blade. had xray and a mri etc etc no results.My conclusion is that it is from the meds i am using.It is hard to sleep and it keeps you awake and walk the floor.
hi i have had problems since october last yr with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> armpits, i have had a mammogram and it was all clear, i have had four lots of antibiotics and different creams to help with pain, but i have noticed that i have a bit of rash on right breast and a swelling it is nearly twice the size of the other one , the pain goes under my arm and around back ,
I had an ultra sound done for the second time and found that I had 7cyst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. Some big and some little. I was having alot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my breast and in my right arm. The day before I meet with my doctor I discovered a lump under my right arm pit and it was very painful I would say it is the size of a pea. My regular doctor said that it was lymp nodes and it would go away.
Add to it that the area between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> stays continuously swollen...almost looks like another little puffy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> trying to grow! From time to time, the lump is painful...but lately it has been sore for the past 2 weeks. The pain extends into my arm. My grandmother had to have a mastectomy due to a tumor in her breast. My mother has to go every 6 months for a mammogram because of lumps in her breast due to scar tissue from reduction surgery.
Is is normal to have an ache that comes and goes for a couple of months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> / <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> area AND what does an enlarged lymph node feel like? How big are they (size of pea or do they need to be larger to be enlarged?
And can you feel a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> and not feel anything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>? How big is a lymph node and what does it feel like under your arm? Thank you for any information you can give.
i also have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> under my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. I have heard that if its cancer, there shouldnt be any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, but i have not gone for any breast exam. I have done a self breast exam and found no lumps. But i feel a little lump near my right armpit. I smoke occassionaly. Have you come across symptoms like this and would you have any idea of what it might be.
Have had antibiotics this has helped with the lethargy feelings but not lessened the swelling under <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> or above right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. the muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right arm when <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> lots of pain feels like a turnique is being tightened. would much like your advice as i am taking herbal medicine and changing diet which is helping but short term.
Every time I feel the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>, there's also a corresponding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my back and left shoulder. Sometimes the pain is mild. Other times it is so severe. Right now, the pain is radiating to my left arm. My left breast nipple and the skin in my left arm are itchy.
For the past 4-5 months I have been experiencing on and off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> rib and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. This has been accompanied by on and off diahrea which has settled down but I feel my stomach has never been the same. I have had a swollen lymph node behind my right ear for about the same time (same size but has gone down since the doctor prescribed me ceferoxil) and had a sore lymph node in armpit which was gone in 2 days since the doctor gave me ceferoxil.
The actual pain in the spot went away after a good 10 days, but then I started to feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on the side of my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. It was mostly tender and sore, no lumps. But worrisome. My period came went and came again...and the tenderness never left. I am also 39, and thinking I am going thru perimenopause...and just about any ache or weird thing I was checking out. I started to notice I had a kind of tingling down my arm. Felt somewhat numb, but not really---down to my hand.
I cannot assure it is something related to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> cancer. My mom had it too and removed it. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> cancer runs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my family. When I touch it, around it there's nothing but right in the middle I can feel a bean-size lump. I notice that there was some pain but i didn't realize it until just a few days ago. I read also it is something related to pregnancy which I am not. Any answers will be appreciated..
I also get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> general. It also itches and the pain radiates to the back of the arm. I don't know what it is either, but would really like to know if it's associated with Hashi's or not. Very strange.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> can be due to heat intolerance and due to sweat dermatitis. It is also possible due to peripheral artery disease. Peripheral neuropathies as in diabetes, chemical burns due to any deo or lotions you use, peripheral nerve compression are the other possibilities. Nerve conduction studies and color dopplar should be done. If all this is ruled out then it can be thoracic outlet syndrome. Take care!
Occasionally (once every two/three months) I feel some sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the accessory. Recently, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the last 6 months, I also noticed a lump in the left armpit too - almost the size of a tennis ball. Neither of them hurt. I do not consider these a "cosmetic issue", I have only chosen to live with them silently out of fear that removing them might lead to complications or my pictures may be splattered over medical journals....
I had a MRI due to palpative lump in right axilla which caused pain and feeling of fullness and right shoulder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that radiated to neck and to bicep and thumb and forefinger, then if that was not enough I developed nonhealing scalp lesions that burned and caused stabbing sharp pains to the area of scalp the lesions of scalp were biopsied 1st time "lichen planus" which at the same time a open excision biopsy of the right axilla was performed to send lymph tissue to pathology but the t
What made me feel was bc i was having bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and tenderness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> that area .. So i felt limp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and had all intentions in getting checked well month later i now have dark black /greenish discharge with pain and som swelling running up underneath armpit ... Past week left breast had only clear milky but yesterday it now has the dark color discharge to however no pain to left breast just right! So I've been more tired ..fatigued.. Working so many hrs!
I have been experiencing extreme pain in the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> that has put me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the hospital overnite. I had 2 ultrasounds on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> and a mamogram. The drs. said the lymph nodes in my right breast close to my arm pit (that's where the worst pain in the breast is located) are irratated and inflammed. I am on pain meds.. What comes next? Why do/how lymph nodes get like this? I am a 38 year old female with a 16 year old son.
