Breast Pain

A few months ago, I began experiencing a burning sensation in the left side of my chest.  I couldn't tell if it was in my breast or chest, but I attributed it to chest pain since I have POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome).  I also experienced pain and tingling that went down my left arm, but was never consistent.  For the last two months though I have been experiencing pain that clearly seems to come from my breast on the left side almost under my arm.  I also have times when my breast is extremely itchy.  I've been trying to ignore it, but it doesn't seem to be going away, and the pain does not seem connected to my POTS symptoms.  Could these be a sign of cancer?

Hi, I felt breast pain too. It started from my scapula. When I met my orthopedic doctor n had rontgen the result was spondylosis a.k.a nerve pinch.
Last week I went to oncology hospital n the result was nothing to worry. My breast pain related to my nerve pinch.
Please, u have to calm down first. But you have to seeyour oncologist/breast spesialist as soon as possible. Don't let stress controll you. Stress enhance back pain and it may cause breast pain n any uncomfort in your armpit, or breast.
Best wishes for you

Do not ignore such issues. Just see a doctor as it can be a serious issue if not properly treated.
