Alright, get ready for this.
About 2.5 weeks I realized I had swollen bumps under my right armpit. These got bigger and bigger quickly and started to hurt, but not too much. Some of them were red. I went to my doctor and she said it was just an infection and put me on antibiotics. Couple of days later, and on antibiotics, there was a new lump/node/whatever it is and that one hurt trmendsouly, even just barely touching it. I went to the ER and they did an ultrasound and found there was fluid and called it an abscesss and drained it. I was put on antibiotics which I kept taking.
I also have to add that about the same time the bumps (or abscesses?) started appearing I developed a pain in my arm. However, the bumps appeared first. The was mostly in my forearm (not shoulder) and only when my arm was stretched and usually stretched over my head. I also had a small swollen node, a bit painful once touched but nothing huge, on my forearm. I mentioned this at the ER and they said it could had been a bruise, or even the abscess affecting the nerves.
It's been a week since the "abscess" was drained from under my armpit, and today while checking the area I see there's a vein that goes from the lump (the lump is still there even after drainage, just not painful and a lot smaller) to the area between my shoulder and elbow. I can follow it for a few inches before it gets lost in my arm. I touched the vein and it hurts, with the pain being very similar to the pain I get when stretching my arm over my head.
I've looked everywhere with what this could be and I've found nothing. On different posts I've seen people with similar symptoms, painful bump then WEIRD cord like vein, and they don't know what it is, and their doctors don't either.
I looked up Auxilliary Web Syndrome and that's the closest thing I can find to it, but I've never had surgery let alone breast cancer. If it helps, I'm male and under 25.
Can someone help with this?
