Need an exam: Without examining the area it's difficult to give precise advise. Is there a lump in the tender area? If it's in the breast it could be a cyst. If it's in the axilla it's likely an infection such as a boil or abscess. In order to make a diagnosis and treat the condition you would have to see a physician. ...Read more

I have really bad pain, moves sides from left to right and its always around my breasts and under armpit Already gave me steriods but those didnt work?

Work patiently: You might need to be very patient and find a Dr to work with you. I expect they did some exam and tests before steroids - if not, do! Then, perhaps knowing your body in general (BMI, labs, etc) a PT eval might help for muscle/nerve work. Again - be patient and ready to exercise. ...Read more

Weird not serious: Probably nothing serious though. There are muscles, ligaments and bones under the breasts and in the armpit. This is the most common cause of such symptoms. It's best to have an exam to be sure. There may be some exercises or stretching that may help. ...Read more
