Breast pain: pain in your right breast and armpit may be breast related but could also be related to a pinched nerve in your neck or shoulder region. If you are having any numbness or weakness on the right side of your shoulder/arm/neck, it would make a pinched nerve problem more likely. If the breast pain persists and there was no obvious cause, you can ask your doctor to get an MRI of the breast too
