What should I do about upper back pain near armpit and shoulder blade?

Spine nerve irritate

If the massage causes you pain and is unpleasant, the massage is teasing the deep muscle spasms to go more into spasm instead of releasing it.Please make sure that you are not over exercising or lifting heavy things. You will need to be evaluated by your family doctor and a

Given the pain's path/location, your age and gender, plus "OK" from your Dr., it is most likely soft tissue / muscular in origin. Particularly if large breasts, may have had a jarring type motion to start discomfort. Should improve with support, ice, nsaid. If not after 7-10 days, recheck with your Dr.

I'm having severe pain in my right side-- chest, under my armpit, my shoulder blade. Not only is it painful, but it itches ( especially on my right?

Consider shingles?

Extremity-joint-shoulder
The earliest symptom of 'shingles' or reactivation of the varicella zoster virus (previously caused chickenpox) ---is severe pain along a nerve path (dermatome) before the typical rash is apparent. The shingles can affect a nerve path stretching from one side of the chest wall through the armpit and back to shoulder blade. But,there are many other causes of chest/shoulder pain -see a doctor soon!

Extremely sore burning left groin left testicle left armpit left shoulder stomach and painful burning lumps on left side of my neck please help?

Have it checked out

Pain
It sounds like you have a series of "lumps" or lymph nodes that are painful particularly on your left side. You should have it checked out to make sure there isn't an infection going on. Don't forget that the lymph nodes act as a drainage and filtration system to try to stop infection. They will swell and be painful. You also want to be sure the lymph nodes are not swollen because of cancer.

LEFT SIDE ONLY. Arm/neck/middle spine numb, painful upon waking for years. Oct. Severe left scapula, shoulder, underarm, tricep elbow forearm pain?

More testing needed

Axilla
These symptoms are too vague to allow for a more detailed response. These problems are best evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon. This will require a comprehensive physical exam and the necessary X-rays or MRI tests. Only then can a reasonable diagnosis be made.

Dr. Kenneth R. Lee answered:

If I have pain in my left breast armpit and around my shoulder blade, could it be breast cancer?

Unlikely

Open-uri20130401-27529-1iwzajx
In general.. No.. Breast cancer is typically a painless palpable lump or it's a mammographical painless finding. Inflammatory breast cancer is an aggressive variant that can be painful as it involves the skin. Advanced cancer that has grown into the skin or chest wall can also be painful. See your physician for a good history and physical. A mammogram or ultrasound could be indicated.

Why do I cough and then feel a sharp pain in my armpit across my back to under my shoulder blade?

Could be diaphragm

Cough
When you cough, it increases your intrathoracic and intra-abdominal pressure. If you do not have enough fluid between your lung tissue and your diaphragm, coughing and even deep breathing can cause pain. Your medical doctor can hear if this is happening using a stethescope. Another reason for your pain could be a pinched nerve in your thoracic spine. Sometimes an MRI is necessary to diagnose this.
