my armpit HURtS! LYMPH NODES :(
« on: December 22, 2010, 04:46:04 PM »
2 days ago, i woke up with what i thought was a sore arm. i realized the next day, because it was even more sore, that it was my axillary nodes. i am beside myself. my mom got breast cancer at a relatively young age (45) so I am afraid that i will get it too I'm 27. I can't feel any lumps or anything at all in my breasts, but i can't shake this fear that it's breast cancer spreading to my under arm lymph nodes. it's a little less sore today, but still pretty painful. Help please. i'm on my 10th panic attack in 2 days and i need to talk to someone.

HOw far are you in your cycle. I always get sore underarms mid cycle and have a long period. Try some Vitamin E. I have long periods and ovulate shortly after. I do have a lymphnode in my breast which is bening. I am assuming my underarm pain comes from that. The coctor saw it in a mammogram.

I'm supposed to be on my cycle right now, but because of longeterm antiobiotic use this month i think it is messing up my period. i am only spotting a bit instead. if it was related to my cycle, i would think it would be on both sides, don't you? uggghhh i HATE cancer and fearing it...

Maybe you have got sore muscles or something? If you had BC which spread to your nodes you would feel large hard lumps

Nope. As I said I only have it on my left arm. It depends on where tense tissue is.

I can feel a lymph node in that armpit that feels larger than on the other armpit. I'm just scared that maybe the cancer in calcifications so i can't feel it in my breast, and now has spread to my underarm...

I have always been told that pain=good.

IOW, breast cancer will not hurt.

but would the lymph nodes hurt if it had spread? i know that lymphoma nodes don't typically hury, but i don't know about other cancers that may have metastisized. AAAAAHHHHH! Eff you HA. It wont stop coming up with questions...it is never satisfied.

What your thinking is that BC has metastized to your nodes? Well metastatic nodes are BIG and rock hard
