Does upper left back/shoulder pain and pain under armpit mean heart issues? Had an echocardiogram a year ago and was fine. Could it be anxiety?

Does upper left back/shoulder pain and pain under armpit mean heart issues? Had an echocardiogram a year ago and was fine. Could it be anxiety?

Depends: Anxiety could absolutely be a cause of pain at different sites of the body. A cardiac etiology is unlikely in a person of your age. Other common causes are musculoskeletal and can be related to poor posture or old injuries. ...Read more

Armpit swelling & burning pain for 3 weeks. Now have burning pain in shoulder blades & stiff back. Do I have cancer?

Armpit swelling & burning pain for 3 weeks. Now have burning pain in shoulder blades & stiff back. Do I have cancer?

Have anexam: The lymph nodes in your arm pits may be fighting some sort of infection and your depleted condition and tension/fatigue could have affected your back. See a Dr to find the cause(s) and get some relief. While I'd be silly to declare that you don't have cancer latent somewhere - I don't see any reason to think you do. Ask the doctor who does your exam/lab work to evaluate that possibility. Best! ...Read more
