What can be causing a painful breast lump and hand/arm pain?

Coincidental?: It is unlikely that you have one process responsible for both of your symptoms. Pain in your arm&hand should not be caused by a breast lump unless there is (significant) swelling in the armpit, as well. Regardless, any new breast lump warrants physician evaluation. It would be best if you saw your primary care doctor or gynecologist. ...Read more

See a Breast Surgeon: At 40 a moveable lump is likely benign, but there is no way to know without an evaluation. A Breast Surgeon can examine you and perform an Ultrasound, a non-invasive imaging test to determine if it is a cyst or a solid mass. Then together you can decide whether it should be biopsied, removed, or simply observed. ...Read more

What is the likely cause of a young woman to have a breast lump?

What is the likely cause of a young woman to have a breast lump?

As women age, breast cysts may develop, which are benign fluid-filled lumps (peak incidence ages 35-50). It is often very difficult to distinguish a lump from normal "lumpy-bumpy" tissue. When in doubt, it is best to see your primary care physician or gynecologist. ...Read more

If you perform self-examination, you will be more likely to identify any new lump, which should prompt a visit to your doctor. If they share your concern, they will send you to a breast specialist and may order tests such as an ultrasound+/-mammogram. ...Read more
