The extra nipples usually occur below the normal nipples and tend to be small and not well formed. The nipples are along the two vertical "milk lines", which start in the armpit on each side, run down through the normal nipples and ...Read more

Mastitis: At your age and it only two days of having symptoms, which are describing is some sort of inflammatory process. If we tie the two together, then some sort of inflammation or infection in the breast tissue with secondary changes in the lymph glands in your armpit makes some sense. In almost every case, your body will be able to manage this on its own. If this doesn't resolve quickly see your md. ...Read more

At the peak of the deepest breath i can take standing sitting etc. I get a pinch sensation in my upper right chest between nipple and armpit.Tumor?
Pain on deep : Breaths is called pleurisy. Broad differential, but as a sign, not very specific. You need a chest x-ray, and if it does not show free air (pneumothorax) a prospect, might need more expensive work up. See a good generalist or lung doctor. Cancer is not high on my list, even if you smoke, if 37 is your age. ...Read more

While laying down on my back up by my armpit it hurts at a 4 on the right side. And my nipples have been hurting for 2 weeks what could it be i scared?
A couple of things: If you have gotten a new bag or purse with a shoulder strap, that could be pinching your pectoral muscle on the right just enough to cause your armpit pain -- try changing that. If you're not pregnant, then the only other explanation for nipple pain i can come up with would be wrong bra or new activity. Like, if you are a runner, that action with a poorly-supporting bra could explain nipple pain. ...Read more

Sore lump that moved from right armpit to right nipple. Also dry, flaky armpit/nipple on right side only. What can this be?
Nipple irritation: If the skin around the nipple is broken/scratched from being dry, it could be that you got a little bit of infection there that caused your lymph node in the armpit to get activated to stop the infection. This is the normal process your body uses to get rid of infection. Don't panic. Use a moisturizer on the dry skin for a few days. If no better, if painful or worse, if fevers, get it checked out. ...Read more

Could it be cancer? Breasts have itched for 6 months, had a rash on left 3 weeks ago, raw/red nipples on both 12/25, now both armpits and breast hurt.
What you described is not typical for a breast cancer, however, it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be mammogram. It would be prudent to see your doctor. See this site for information in this topic.
