Left breast pain and swelling

I have a swollen left breast and swelling under my arm.  I also have radiating pain from my breast all the way down my left arm.  Could this be breast cancer?

Rather than speculating as to the cause of this issue I advise you to make an appointment with your Dr. for an examination and any testing that he/she may deem necessary. With the limited information you give and no test results it is impossible to even venture a guess as to what this might represent. Pain is rarely associated with breast cancer. Please make that appointment tomorrow !  Regards ....
