Question for female
« on: May 16, 2014, 03:24:10 PM »
I have been getting a pain where my arm meets my body, not really my breast, but not my armpit either. Does anyone get this? I'm so worried about breast cancer. How long should I wait before seeing a dr. I have done a self examination of my breast and can't feel any lumps.
Thoughts?

Are you sure you didn't pull a muscle? I had something similar and I didn't realize until days later that it was from vigorously scrubbing a stain out of the carpet.

I had to come back and add that I did go to the OB and she found nothing. It didn't occur to me until the next day when I was scrubbing the floor again and it hurt in that same spot.

I have no idea. I had this problem twice before too.

I had this exact same issue in October, then about 6 weeks ago (went to the dr and he thought it was a pulled muscle), and now today it started again.
Am I correct in thinking if it was breast cancer then the pain would not go away for weeks or months at a time? It would be a little more consistent?

As far as I know, in most cases of breast cancer, there is rarely pain.

Really? For some reason I always relate pain to cancer.

Same here but that's what my doctor told me. She said lumps or swelling are something to pay more attention to than just pain... the sad thing is, I get lumps often. Don't know why but they have always been benign tumors. She's offered to drain them but I find that process terrifying.

Yeah, I would find it scary to get it drained aswell.
Do you know when the best time in a month is to do a self exam? Is it better before or after your period?

A week after your cycle ends. Apparently your cycle makes you more sensitive and your breasts can be more lumpy at your time of the month.

I get this, too, and almost every time it freaks me out a little. Then I remember that it's happened before & to wait a few days to see if it goes away (it always does). I believe mine is from certain exercises or overusing the muscles in that area -- I can almost always pinpoint what I might have done to cause it to be sore. It's good to check for lumps in sore areas, but be gentle -- I found that sometimes I was obsessively checking the area or massaging it & it just made the soreness last longer or get worse.  :-*
