Arm/breast pain: First go to your gyn provider for an exam. The weight of the breast can pull on the nerve complex under the axilla of the arm, and lifting the breast will stop the pulling on the nerve. A growth under the arm may be involving the brachial plexus, so the condition needs to be examined by a physician.
