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 Breast cancer is rarely associated with pain ... there is one type where breast pain is an issue but there are other very obvious symptoms as well. An enlarged lymph node has several causes ... one is an infection somewhere in the body and sometimes it can be as simple as an infected hair follicle. You are wise to have taken action to investigate this problem. I'm sure the mammogram and/or ultrasound will settle the issue. Regards ..
Avatar f tn I've got a slightly pain on left breast and armpit, the breast pain is about a year now and i went to see my Dr and he did not find any lumps or signs of breast cancer but I am really concerned about this.

Avatar n tn Five years ago I discovered a lump underneath my left armpit initially not painfull. Was diagnosed with breast cancer, I had a lumpectomy and 15 out of 24 lymph nodes were found to be cancerous and removed, chemo, rads & tamoxifen. I have now had a double mastectomy and re constructive surgery. Recently over the past few weeks I have been experiencing a pain in the same area of my armpit it comes and goes with a general aching that lasts.
Avatar f tn So I started researching and researching, I came across symptoms of breast cancer (lump in armpit, painful joint if it has spread...etc. ). I started getting health anxiety, checking my breast all the time and lo and behold my breast are lumpy, the left one seemed a little bit lumpier than the right, however, most lumps were still bilateral. My mind raced, lumps in the breast, thickened armpit, shoulder soreness...yup, I bet I have cancer.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a physician recently also dx with breast cancer. Without a family history of breast cancer (meaning for mother,aunts do not carry the brca gene), I would say your chance of breast cancer is low at age 19. Cyst and other benign conditions are more prevalent. Still, get the mammogram (ultrasound if anything looks abnormal on mammogram) and continue to do monthly breast exams.
Avatar n tn because breast pain isnt normally in ur armpit because the lymph nodes are usually only on the edge of the armpit and if it was a breast related problem that was giving u armpit pain then ur lymph nodes would probably be swollen. has ur actual breast been hurting? if it has regularly, then go back to the docs and say your still worried. but at ur age breasts may get more tender at certain times of the month etc, usually before periods. it may be muscular, certain sports can cause muscular pain.
Avatar f tn In the meantime try to get in touch with a Breast Cancer Center or a Breast Specialist in Cyprus and see if you can get an appointment sooner. I sincerely hope that you'll find a quick solution to this problem. Wishing you all the best...
1923426 tn?1322764607 today to get checked and says i must have bumped into something but ordered blood work to check for a blood disorder but no explanation for the armpit pain or tiredness,he didnt even do a full breast examination should I just let it go or get a second opinion?
2208860 tn?1339007795 I went to the dr and explained my symptoms and told him sometimes I feel a pain in my arm and armpit as well.. I have NO family history of cancer, no lumps. To ease my mind he ordered me a mammogram - which later found out was an ultrasound. My spot for mamo wasn't until a few weeks and in between that time I noticed that my armpit had swollen, doing research I panicked and thought my lymph nodes were swollen and was for sure I had cancer!
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 A breast self-examination should always include the armpit because breast cancer can enlarge the armpit lymph nodes even when the breast itself seems perfectly normal. ref:http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003099.htm So you need to go and have it examined at the earliest.

Avatar f tn My recent problem is that I have been feeling extreme discomfort and radiating pain in my LEFT armpit. I felt around and discovered a lump larger than the one on the right side and more in my armpit area. I am experiencing this radiating shooting and burning pain that shoots through my left breast and up into my arm. I am a little bit worried about this because the pain in getting worse and my GP did not feel this lump.
494669 tn?1275362475 The most common sign of breast cancer is a lump or thickening in the breast. Other potential signs of breast cancer include: a spontaneous clear or bloody discharge from the nipple, retraction or indentation of your nipple, a change in the size or contours of the breast, flattening or indentation of the skin over the breast or redness or pitting of the skin over your breast.
Avatar f tn A day ago my right breast started to hurt today I have fever along with body ache and back pain. My breast is getting hard and feels a little hot to the touch. I tried to go to doctor today but he isnt available until tomorrow morning. Could it be cancer or an infection that went from the armpit to the Brest? ..is not the whole breast is the bottom left side.
Avatar f tn I have 3 lumps on my right breast, pain in my right breast, armpit, and between my shoulder blades exactly opposite of my right breast. I explained all of this to my Dr. he then performs his exam and quickly says you have cellulitis. Gave me Cipro and a fungal cream. For my peace of mind, he ordered a routine Mammogram and chest Xray. After voicing my concerns at the imaging office, they changed the order with the Drs. permission to a Diagnostic mammogram, plus an Ultrasound.
Avatar f tn For the past few weeks my underarm has knots in it plus it hurts. The pain is now going into my left breast. I dont have insurance plus no money for a doctor if it's something simple. I have had an uncle die of luekemia, another of non hodgens, and an aunt of hodgens diease. Should i go to the er to have it check out? Dont they say though that if it's cancer it wont hurt? Please help!
Avatar n tn Would breast cancer cause pain in the shoulder, armpit, ribs, back, arms, neck, jaw and sometimes the pain runs down the leg.
Avatar f tn Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums. This is the breast cancer community and I'm assuming you aren't worried you have breast cancer from your bra. Those would not be related. But yes, it could be causing your pain. But other things can as well. I'd stop wearing the bra to see if this alleviates the pain. Please seek medical attention though for sharp and unexplained pains. We wish you the best of health.
Avatar f tn ve had them for longer than that . I also barely started experinecing under arm pain mostly on my left armpit. And my breast are extremely painful . I can't lay on my stomach because they hurt so bad my kids can't lay on my chest because they hurt ! In the mornings when I wake up they hurt the most I can barely even touch them !
