Armpit pain breast cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Armpit pain breast cancer


Avatar n tn Hi, It is not unusual for breasts to be painful, particularly during certain times of the menstrual cycle.Your breast pain does not signal anything bad especially at your young age and also because breast cancer is almost never associated with pain. Some people have painful breasts and there are a variety of causes,especially in young teenagers.Hormone levels play a major role in the body that could be causing this kind of discomfort.
Avatar n tn I have pain in my right armpit which has spread across into the right breast and a little pain in 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.
Avatar n tn Dear Scooby, Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood, and is not usually associated with breast cancer. Sometimes it is associated with hormonal variations and is called cyclical breast pain. A history and physical exam will be important to thoroughly evaluate the pain.
Avatar n tn I had breast cancer three years ago on my left side had mastecomy and now on tamoxifen. I have been noticing for the last couple of months that on my right side upper outer part of breast and into armpit area it has been aching. My armpit area in that location is very lumpy, so do not really know if there are any lymph nodes enlarged.
Avatar n tn For the last few months on the right side upper outer area of right breast and underarm I have been having a dull aching feeling off and on my right side. When I feel the breast I don't feel lumps, but in the armpit I feel what I think might be a lymph node, but not sure because I tend to have lumpiness, so not sure if I am over reacting to something that has been there all a long. Can breast cancer cause an aching feeling?
Avatar n tn I would like to know if I have pain and tenderness in one breast and armpit, if it is a symptom for breast cancer. My mom has a history of breast cancer all the way back to her great great grandmas....i am concerned and scared and wondering if i should go to the doctor. I had a full hysterectomy a few years ago.
Avatar n tn Hi, I would definitely ask for a biopsy if there is a mass there that they cannot definitively tell you is benign. Especially if you are feeling pain now. IBC is inflammatory breast cancer, which doesn't usually present as a mass--this is why it is harder to diagnose (among other things). I was told to take primrose oil and vitamin e by my doctor for "breast health"--that this would make the pain, which she insisted was cyclical, go away.
Avatar n tn It also appears that if you look at me from the front, my armpit area on the right is more pronounced (larger) than the right. When I press into the armpit, there is pain that radiates down my right arm. I also have pain right around my upper right trapezius. This has been going on for roughly 2 weeks. I don't feel any lumps or bumps, though, nothing out of the ordinary. Trying to determine if I need to see my regular doc or make a beeline for a breast health specialist. Please help!
Avatar f tn I am suffering now with a breast pain particularly at right breast, right back shoulder and even my armpit and right arm.Is this a symptom of Breast Cancer? I have undergone breast ultrasound but its negative, 3 doctors have checked me through breast exam but there no cyst found....
Avatar n tn if you have underarm pain and pain tn breast does that mean you hhhave cancer? I have pain and tenderness under my left underarm and breast.
Avatar n tn I had a Breast Lumpdectomy & lymph nodes removed 5 years ago. The past year I have had such pain under my breast and my armpit that they did a mammogram & ultra sound and said nothing there you are fine, but I'm not there is something going on, how can I find an answer?
Avatar f tn I suggest that you do as your Dr. advised. I'm not sure if the exam showed tissue inflammation why you weren't started on an Antibiotic but at any rate I would definitely get another opinion. Call your Dr.s office on Monday and ask for the referral. I'm pretty sure this isn't going to go away on it's own so it's time to seek some form of treatment. Regards ....
Avatar n tn I had surgery four months ago for ductal breast cancer. It was a modified radical and they had removed 19 lymph nodes in which 15 were positive. I underwent radiotherapy for five weeks and now undergoing post adjuvant therapy of Herceptin which will continue till 30 July 2012(completing one year of Herceptin). I am Her +, ER and PR +++. I have been put on Tamxofien 20 mg. I am coping well with the treatment but do have pain off and on in the breast region, shoulder and the arm.
Avatar f tn Hi. I had right breast pain 3 weeks back. Doctor gave me antibiotics and now the pain is not there. However, i have painful lumps on both my armpits. Is this related to breast cancer. I am not married. Please let me know.
Avatar f tn I woke up Friday night with a sharp and aching pain in the top of my left breast. I rubbed it and felt what I thought was a lump. My breast has been hurting ever since, getting worse. Today it feels like a heaviness, fullness. It feels like it hurts behind my breast, into my armpit, on top and below my breast. Hurts to rub it. Feel a lump every once in a while in top area of breast.
1327095 tn?1275007277 normally no pain is there but when i press them then pain happens. breast pain is very rare ,xtremely rare. around my left breast near nipples tiny pimples are there 2/3 very very small. brown area around nipples is hard only frm one side ,not the whole rounded area is onlt 1 part you can say. on my right breast there are tiny pimples other than those 3 lumps.
Avatar f tn Hi, What is the location of your pain? Is it close to the lumps? Can you please describe how the pain is induced? I am unable to understand the phrase" I have burp my nerve", could you rephrase it? It is very difficult to say with the information that you provide whether you have breast cancer or not. You should visit your doctor and after a detailed examination and some tests he would be able to tell you for sure whether you have breast cancer or not.
Avatar n tn Then I had shingles on the same side and breast. The blisters went away but I still feel pain. sensetive nipple. I am very concerened if I have breast cancer. Pls advise me what to do?
Avatar n tn Despite my age, will the doctors look seriously into the possibility of me having breast cancer? Will an ultrasound pick up cancer? Do nodes in the armpit generally swell if only cysts are present? Thank you, Sheila.
Avatar f tn The other symptoms I have are some local pain, lumps in the armpit and skin changes. I recently had a mammogram, at this time the radiologist wanted me to also have an ultrasound. I was told the mammogram was fine and the ultrasound showed lymph nodes. My primary care physician referred me to a surgeon. Should this be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn Family history of breast cancer is one indicator but not the only one. I was just diagnosed with breast cancer about a month ago and no one in our family has ever had cancer...please have it checked out. The surgeon who did your wrist surgery would be a good place to start. Call and ask his nurse to call you back if she is unavailable when you call. Tell her what is going on. Please do this on Monday! Good luck!
Avatar f tn I read in this medhelp website that Bone Pain near a breast can mean its breast cancer. Did anyone diagnosed with breast cancer ever had bone pain near the breast or felt pain under armpit, neck and shoulders?
Avatar n tn I have had 3 rounds of neoadjuvant chemo for breast cancer, i also have two 9mm lumps in my armpit. I have dull pain in my armpit, which goes slightly to my shoulder and neck. Is it possible that my cancer is being metastised??? or what is it????
