Hi , I would like to share my story about armpit pain
I'm 23 years old , and I felt a lump under my left armpit 2 years ago, it was movable , painless, not inflamed , with a size of big olive, it was increasing in size during period , I have no family history of breast cancer , I discover it when I was examining my breast ( as am a medical student ) and I just ignore till it increase in size and appear in the my other right armpit , it is discomforting and annoying and sometime it causes pain .
I have done several U/S and it showed multiple breast fibroadenoma with enlarged lymph node , and the mammogram showed no carcinogenesis.
I consulted many surgical doctors and all of them advice me for urgent remove so pathologist can give me the definite diagnosis.
I refused as the armpit surgery is one of the surgeries that can distort the armpit appearance .
after that I went to Breast Cancer Radiologist and I have done core biopsy ( which is like needle aspiration ) for my lump , the consultant provisional diagnosis was either ( Tb , or lymphoma )
after the result came out , the consultant was completely shocked and very happy cause the pathologist report of my armpit lump was fibroadenoma !"
the doctor write my story as "" case report "" and he said this is a rare case in the world !
This discussion is related to Armpit pain, could it be from fibroadenoma?
