I had breast cancer in my left breast in 2003 and had chemo and radiation & lumptectomy. I have my yearly mammograms and they say everything is OK, but I get pain under my left armpit that goes from my back to the side and sometimes right under the armpit. Should I be concerned?
This pain you are experiencing could be nerve-related or a pulled muscle... But there's no telling for sure till you consult your doctor or a neurologist for evaluation.
Try not to use you left arm as much as possible also applying warmth to the affected area, could help,but please see your doctor so he can advise you about what test you would need to find out what is causing your pain.
I am sorry if I can't be more helpful,but I hope that you'll feel better soon.
Wishing you all the best...
