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

Muscular pain?: Most likely it is musculoskeletal pain and may be related to lifting heavy objects. I will advice to get it checked by your doctor to make sure there is nothing else going on and treat appropriately.
