LCIS : Lobular-carcinoma-in-situ (lcis) is a microscopic finding on breast biopsy that is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in either breast of those affected. It is silent in that it causes no symptoms. Therefore, your breast & arm pain is unrelated to the diagnosis. Perhaps the pain is related to the biopsy procedure itself. If so, it should resolve pretty quickly.
