Avatar f tn Oh my goodness! I am having alot of this too. Mine is in my left armpit mostly and then in my shoulder, neck, upper left rib cage and back. All on my left side. Sometimes it feels cold,sometimes it is hot and tingly, sometimes it is just a throbbing pain other times sharp shooting pains. Most of the time my left arm is affected. I have had all the heart test run and when I felt a lump under my left armpit I had a mammogram done.
Avatar n tn I have a large lump on my rib that is right below my left breast. It is not in my breast but below my breast.I had a tumor removed a year ago in my right breast, which was benign, but this is strange. It is very large and very distinctive. Can you have a tumor on your rib and not in your breast that might be Breast cancer and what do you think it can be. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Avatar n tn Also, at 25 yrs, I noticed a lump near my armpit about the size of a pea-hard/rubbery texture. I had around 4-5 different drs look at it, even dermatologist, who didn't seem to think it was breast related; however, 1 doc wanted to give me a strange antibiotic for a few wks, which I didn't take at the time,perhaps I should've. I had a baby 2 1/2 years ago/b-fed for 6 mos. My bf didn't come easily and the questionable side was more prone to milk production. My breasts would get lumpy due to milk.
Avatar n tn Now, believe me, I am not a hypochondriac and I dread even going to the doctor again. But I am having symptoms in my breast. I am still nursing my child, and this isn't mastitis. For six months I've had stabbing pains in my left breast. I also feel some pain radiating down my arm now and then. I also feel this heaviness, like sometimes it is painful to breathe. I even went to the ER (first time ever) in April, thinking I was having a heart attack.
Avatar n tn The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery. Thankyou for your information also because now I think i will phone my doctor and ask her if its serious enough for surgery, or just a big pimple?
Avatar f tn I have a lump under my armpit as well. I went in to get a CT a couple of years ago and was told that it was only excess breast tissue; thus I am not too worried. However, I do feel slight pain if I press on it (I assume it is normal because the rest of my breasts are sensitive in the same way). I also am very self conscious about the way it looks when I wear sleeveless shirts. I am considering getting it removed.
Avatar n tn I have had it for months on and of. I have a lump constanly in the crease of my finger. If I go climbing or carry shopping bags its really painful. So I try to be careful not to put pressure on it to stop the "pop" which is even more excrutiating. Hope someone out there can help.
Avatar n tn Pinpoint pain with pressing scattered over entire breast, armpit, ribs. Only tiny lymph nodes felt. Recurring lump and redness same place as mastitic lump, but baby seems to nurse it down. Occasional red patch to the side of that site; resolves. Generalized itching over entire breast. Brief relief after nursing. (decreased pressure?) Letdown reflex more tingly and painful in affected breast. Pain worsening; used to come and go, but has been continuous for past 6 wks.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn I already have a dcis and idc diagnosis. My right breast has always been a little smaller than the left. I always attributed it to uneven nursing. Lately tho my right has appeared MUCH smaller. I can even tell thru clothing wearing a bra. I had an excisional biopsy recently but it was on the side near my armpit and there is no dimple from the surgery. The breast just seems "emtier" in the cleavage area if you know what I mean.
Avatar f tn Hi, I had a baby in 2010. My little man stopped nursing early on so I started pumping milk to feed him. When my little man was about 4 months old I had the pleasant experience of battling yeast on my breast. They itched and were sore almost the entire time I pumped for my little man. The yeast infection never went away with meds or creams.
1780294 tn?1314610691 Im a 20 year old female, a couple years back I experienced a lump in my breast, i went to the doctors, had it checked out, and was told it was "binyne" I dont know, they told me it was just fatty tissue, about a year later the lump gets bigger and starts to hurt every now and then.
Avatar n tn I have logged on for the first time Noticed a number of comments re problems with left armpit(lump) and pain in left breast. I have had the same problem for about two years. Of recent weeks the breast pain has increased. Last week I was sent for an Ultra Sound, await the results. Over the years I have surgery for the removal of benign lumps and in 1982 had a reduction. With all of these adhesions it was difficult to do a self examination so had regular mamograms.All showed no problems.
Avatar n tn After being examined, she told me that there was a lump in my breast. I told her that I had read where pain in the breast associated with a lump is usually a benign cyst. However, she said not to count on that. She went further to tell me of mastectomies, lumpectomies, and radiation therapy. Also, I was informed about specialists in Duke. She scheduled me for a mammogram for the following day. However, I could not have it done that day and now I have to wait until Thursday, the following week.
907672 tn?1381029323 It does not hurt at all and my nipple looks to be caving in slightly compared to my other breast. About a week before I noticed the lump in my breast I noticed a lump in my armpit but it went away after a few days. Other than feeling a little tired lately I feel fine. I went to the doctor on Monday and he thought that it may be an infection and recommended I use warm wet compresses on my breast for a couple of weeks to see if it will go away.
Avatar n tn I recently noticed a lump underneath my armpit. I am wondering if this could be a swollen lymph node. Can someone tell me what a swollen lymph node would look like and does it secrete any type of liquid. This lump I have secreted a liquid similiar that of what would come from a pimple.
689528 tn?1364139441 I just noticed this morning that I have a nice sore hard lump on my left breast...well closer to my armpit. I think I remember this with baby #1. Does this sound like a blocked duct? I've been massaging it since I've noticed it and I will massage it as I'm feeding her. I feed her laying down at night so I hope that's not why. This is also my breast that has a crazy super fast let down so I'm wondering if she just isn't emptying my breast enough. Any other ways to care for it?
Avatar n tn I chalked it up to hormomes or the epidural/morphine from the C-section. They lasted for a couple months. I don't know about the lump in her armpit. That definitely needs to be checked out by the doctor. I wouldn't stop breastfeeding for those reasons unless the doctor thought it was necessary. Good luck! Keep us posted!!
2063110 tn?1398570934 My milk just came in yesterday but today I have a HARD ping pong lump in my left armpit and it hurts like crazy. I figured it was related to me breast feeding. Has anyone experienced this before and know what it is and how to get rid of it or do I need to be seen my a dr.?
Avatar m tn *lump in right breast, about the size of a grape, not painful but I feel pressure there and in that area. It is towards my armpit, maybe a lymph node? *Joint pain--shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers, Nothing excruciating, but I constantly have this feeling like they need to pop. *Swollen lymph node (or lump?) beneath clavicle. I went to the dr. last week. She said it sounds like something muscular, probably nothing to worry about. She ordered a breast ultrasound.
Avatar f tn Apply the warm cloth to your breast area of the lump. Go in circular motions to break down the milk. Do this in the shower, before bed or even as first wake up. After doing this a few good times. Try to gently push it down towrds your nipple area. If you notice liquid coming out your good. If not and still are scared your ob alcan further assist you.
Avatar f tn Also have recurring yeast infections And this lump under my arm or what feels like a lump is scaring me! I had this discomfort feeling in my armpit on and off for months but can't remember if it was before or after my unprotected incidence. I just never thought any about my problems bc I never thought I was at risk for hiv. Would any of this signs change ur assessment?
