What's his diagnosis: You can have an extension of breast tissue that is shaped like a tail that points up to the armpit. You might have a breast cyst in that area, that changes with your cycle. That area might be hard to image with a mammogram, but an ultrasound might show. Any painful lump should be checked. High caffeine intake can cause more breast cyst pain also. Consider a recheck or a 2nd opinion.
