My mammo/us report was negative there were no suspicious findings but I do get pain in my left armpit. It says probable benign reactive lymph.Imscared?
Wait: Benign reactive lymph nodes are exactly that; they are larger and tender because they are reacting to something else, like an infection elsewhere. With the negative mammogram and us, i would just do watchful waiting; if the pain/mass gets more painful or larger, or if it starts changing in appearance or feel, i would see the doctor again. ...Read more

I felt a mild pain in my left armpit and then a tingling sensation started in my stomach and radiates in my left arm and left leg.
Too vague to know: I would just watch it and see what it progresses to. At this point it's completely unclear what it could be, but any pain having it's origin in the abdominal cavity (peritoneum) tends to have a diffuse and non-localized character like you are describing. If you develop fever or if the pain is starting to get severe and localizes in one spot then I would go see a doctor immediately. ...Read more
I have pain in my left armpit and i feel a tiny lump in my left breast. The lump is painful when i press on it. Could this be breast cancer?
Exam: Assuming you have no nodes swollen in the region, it might be musculoskeletal. The muscle of concern is the seratus anterior, which would elicit pain if you were to push forcefully on something. If the pain is elicited by reaching to the front and out toward the side this would implicate the subscapularis. An osteopath can figure this out and tell you how to heal the problem. ...Read more
