Hi, Yes breast cancer could present like this but you need to get a clinical evaluation done to get a confirmed diagnosis. The rate of breast cancer in males are very low. You could be having some infection or it could be a side effect of some medications. Are you on any medications currently? In any case a clinical evaluation by a physician is a must and he might order some investigations. Goodluck.
i am taking an antibiotic called amoxin for a sty i had in my eye, i was also sore under my L arm pit and have been feeling sick....
Well i suggest you schedule an appointment with your physician at the earliest. A clinical evaluation at this stage would be the best approach. It would also tell you whether any medications need to be taken or any investigations done. Goodluck.
ok, so now today the lymph node under my R arm has swollen and become pretty painful, the lump near my nipple has also become more pronounced....i have dr appointment tomorrow but i was just wondering what you might think is going on...or at least give me a few scenarios- i am already worried so dont worry about replying with any kind of speculation...lol what would cause my lymph nodes to swell in different places and so big? this has never happened before....thanks
also, does breast cancer on one side cause swolen lymphnodes in the opposite side armpit?
Yes cancer can spread to the lymph nodes on the opposite side. You should not jump at the conclusion that this is malignant without a confirmed diagnosis. Even using a deodarant in the under arm region could lead to lymph node swelling as can procedures like tattoing/ waxing etc. So just wait for your appointment and relax till your doctor can give you some answers. Goodluck.
So what did your doctor say? My husband is experiencing the same thing now?
You need to get him to see a doctor for a clinical evaluation at the earliest. He would also need to get some investigations done.
Do let us know about the symptoms he has, and what does a breast self examination reveal. Is he on any drugs? For how long has he been having the symptoms?
Do let us know about waht the doctor tells him, and keep us updated about his progress.
Hope this helps.
