Prob.not cancer but:: From your description I doubt this is cancer; bumps and swelling in armpits could be swollen glands or an abscess,but glands swollen from cancer may come but keep getting bigger and don't "go." The pain under your shoulder blade and chest can have many causes but cancer is unlikely. But PLEASE see a good doctor today or very soon; we can't know for sure what is going on and you should be examined.

Unlikely: Your young and breast cancer hardly ever presents as pain. It's likely musculoskeletal but cancer is very low probability. Don't worry.
