Having pain in right side arm pit.The pain is not so bad that i need to take anything just bugging me.This just started just a few days ago I have never had anything like it before. No breast cancer in family.
Can anyone who had armit pain describe a pain a bit more. I started having pain couple of days before. I have checked my left breast carefully and did not notice anything strange. No lumps, no discharge. Just pain in armit and upper arm and kinda outside pain. I just got really scared. i have since read few commnet on it and it says that the sign of breast cancer is not pain but still. Please get back to me on this.
Ija - I had shooting pains in my right breast, upper arm down to my elbow. They would come on even when I was sitting still in the car. Seemed trivial to go to the doctor, so I tried to ignore it. A 3 yrly mammo in Nov 2002 showed a "mass" and I was recalled to a specialist breast care centre, where a compression mammo was done, ultrasound, then core biopsy - all within an hour! I knew then when they showed me the mass on the x-rays and screen that I had a tumour. It was a 2 cm invasive ductal cancer, with intermediate grade nuclear DCIS. I had a lumpectomy, sample node removal, 2 out of 8 with cancer, and went back for more surgery a month later - total axillary dissection. One more node positive, so I had the whole shebang - 5 months of chemo, 5 and a half weeks of radiotherapy, and now on Arimidex. I would get your breast checked out. I had no palpable lump whatsoever, neither I nor my GP could feel a lump before I was recalled. I did have pain for a long time beforehand - perhaps 18 months, but we only get a 3 yrly mammo in the UK and I knew zilch about breast cancer. It never occurred to me that the pain was from a tumour. Go get it checked - soon! even if only to put your mind at rest.
