I have had 16 fibroid adenoma tumors removed from my breasts and 1 papilloma tumor removed over the course of 38 years on an average of every 2 years.
I have two more fibroids one in my armpit and one within the axillary tail of the left breast and one by my nipple. I had an ultrasound that picked up 3 lesions and an MRI that only picked up 2 and my surgeon tells me that he won't take out one of the lumps because it was not identified on my MRI. Any way, I may be dealing with this in another way.
Although they have said they appeared to be that of a fibroid which is what I normally grow; however I am concerned about something I noticed below my armpit. Because I am over weight I have a couple of fatty roles on my sides just under my armpit along the bra line on both sides, but the one under my left armpit ,where the one lump is, has two dimples on it and it hurts constantly, especially when I wear my bra and sleep on that side.
I am concerned that the diagnosis is and it may be something else this time. I did read of a cancerous tumor that presents like a fibroid and the only way to know for sure is to have a biopsy done on it. So I am wondering if anyone else out there has had dimpling on the bra line under the armpit that has had a tumor in the armpit and if so, did they discover whether or not the lump caused it and if so did it turn out to be cancerous?
I can only find information on dimpling on the actual breast which is not helping to guide me on what to do about it, because I mentioned it to my GP and the surgeon and they blow blew it off saying it was nothing and not related to my breast lump issue.
