I have a very painful lump left side breast. Was up more towards my armpit now it's down my whole left side of breast. I'm scared. It's painful. I do have large breasts so is it something to be so scared for?! I'm worried.

See your doctor

While this sounds like something that may be treated medically, you shoud not assume it is a simple issue. Please see your doctor as soon as you are able. I hope that your problem is easy to treat and cure.

I'm a 23 year-old female with a painful hard vein in my armpit. Why could this be and what can I do about it? Could this have to do with breastfeeding even though the painful vein is a good distance from the breasts?

As

As mentioned above Paget Schroeder's disease, often called "effort vein thrombosis" is often found in people with a lot of overhead arm exercise such as baseball pitchers but this effects the deep vein called the axillary vein. Pregnancy itself is linked to a normal increase in clotting factors and this helps to normally control post partum bleeding after delivery. Mondors Disease may be a more likely diagnosis in your case. First described in detail by Henri Mondor in 1939, this condition is a rare entity characterized by a sclerosing thrombophlebitis of the subcutaneous veins of the anterior chest wall (superior epigastric vein) and also effect the veins in the axilla and lateral chest wall (lateral throacic and thoracoepigastric veins). It is characterized by the sudden appearance of a subcutaneous cord, which is initially red and tender and subsequently becomes a painless, tough, fibrous band that is accompanied by tension and skin retraction. The condition is usually benign and self-limited and will resolve with anti inflammatory medicines. Your OB-GYN should be familiar with this condition and of course any medicine you take may effect your breast milk and your infant, so please consult with your doctor and do not take medicines on your own while you are actively breast feeding. It is important to realize that the resulting inflammatory condition may effect the future interpretation of your mammograms and this history should be told to the radiologist when they are interpreting your films. As mentioned above, a coagulation profile (thrombophilia panel) is indicated to see if you have an known condition which predisposes you to clotting disorders. Recent advances in superficial thrombophlebitis (SVT) have shown that abnormalities such as Lp(a) and , methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) polymorphisms at C677T and A1298C genetically predisposes its carriers to SVT which may contribute to hypercoagulation in pre-existing varicose vein disease.

I am on Ranitidine at the moment & I've got very itchy armpits (develops at night), itchy & slightly painful breasts. Is this due to ranitidine?

Could be?

Ranitidine
These types of medications, especially cimetidine (Tagamet) are know to cause breast tenderness. Itching? I am not so sure about, however, if there is a one on one correlation to taking a medication and developing symptoms, there is a good chance it may be the cause. One can stop and see if symptoms go away and restart and see if they recur? May just want to go to a different med. Ask your PCP?

Constant breast pain like I have a deep bruise or knot deep in my left armpit. Breasts are gen. lumpy. Int sharp itchy burning pain. Exam in feb ok. ?

Could be muscular

Itching
rib pain can mimic breast pain. I see it all of the time. Intercostal rib pain, or costochondriitis can mimic breast pain. Your doctor should be able to distinguish between the 2.

Dr. Joshua D. Batt answered:

Age 19 why are my breasts sore? Mostly on the outer side near armpit. I've been working out a lot lately. They are tender when I touch or lay on them.

Sore muscles

Pectoralis_major
Breast pain can come from multiple sources. Sometimes this pain may be related to the end of menstrual cycles. If you are doing exercises that stress the muscles of the chest, namely the pectoralis muscles, you may feel pain across the chest that extends into the armpits. With fluid hydration, rest and anti-inflammatory medications, you may be able to find relief from your aches.

Sharp radiating pain next to armpit from top breast to shoulder. Both sides. Very swollen breasts very tender abd swell fatigue not pregnant. Cause?

Be seen

Fatigue
If such symptoms are not from pregnancy, you should get a good history and exam as many causes exist. Obviously new exercise can cause pain in that area. But fatigue and swollen breasts make me consider something with your endocrine/hormone system, or something causing swelling throughout your body like thyroid disease, or liver problems. Medications can do that too

Is it possible that a breast Is it possible thatcer lump be on the armpit or Is it possible that it only be on breasts?

Maybe

Breast_cancer
but not commonly. If a breast cancer became advanced enough that it spread to enlarged axillary lymph nodes, then yes that is possible, but not common. See your doctor for an exam to see what it is that you are feeling.

I have a knot under my armpit... I believe is from my breasts hematoma. is that normal?

Not typically normal

Bruise
breast hematoma implies a blood collection or bruising either after surgery or some trauma. Have you had any of it recently ? More commonly a knot in armpit is either from a simple cyst or lymph node or infected hair follicle
