Hello just wondering if anyone can give me some advice. A few months back i noticed a dull ache/pain in my left armpit area and it felt a bit lumpy. i went to the doctors and i was examined. They said it was all hormonal and that i had some hormonal lumpiness of the axillary tail (little tiny lumps like rice pudding). I went back a week later and it was all gone (after period). This was in August and i hadnt had it since but now its back but different this time. I have the pain in my armpit again and occasionall shooting pains in left breast but it also feels like ive pulled a muscle or something. You know the feeling when youve pulled a muscle and it aches on certain movements? well when i reach for something occasionally i get this pulled feeling which feels like its behind my left breast if that makes sense. This has been present a week before my period and im now on my period.
I also have occasional pains in my right breast but its mostly the left. Ive read that cyclical breast pain (hormonal breast pain) affects both breasts at the same time but my left is definately 90% worse than the right.
Im getting really worried and as i have major health anxiety problems anyway, its making me feel physically ill. Ive got a little boy whose one and im just imagining him growing up without me. My maternal grandmother AND grandfather have had breast cancer Ive had my breasts examined 3 times since august with this problem and no lumps have been found.
Could this just be hormonal? Even though is worse in the left breast/armpit. Could the pulled muscle/stitch feeling be anxiety?
thank you for reading, sorry its so long. x
