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.

Pain on right side of breast area not far away from armpit. Feels tight and dull pain on deep breath. Is not painful to touch. Smoker. Heart attack?

Not likely

Axilla
Pain from a heart attack is almost never worsened by taking a deep breath. However, the exact cause of your pain may be any of many possibilities; some are more serious than others. I recommend prompt evaluation.

Past few weeks I've had a sore spot on L breast, close to the armpit. Painful enough that i can't lay on that side. No lump. Should I be concerned?

Maybe

Axilla
Is there a rash? A bruise? Is your clothing too constrictive? You should see your doctor if it does not go away in the next week or two or a rash appears.

I have a small lump deep in near my armpit/breast that is extremely painful when pressed, what could it be?

Breast lump

Any lumps in the breast area deserve a doctor's visit. Painful lump might indicate an acute infection or inflammation. However lumps need to be evaluated and followed up.

Painful lump in left breast near armpit, doesnt seem to actually go away. I can visibly see the swelling at the site. What could this be?

Breast lump

Chest-breast
Based on your age, this could be an accessory lobe of the breast. It usually engorges with your period. Since it does not go away, you should have an examination by a doctor who may consider an image study such as an ultrasound.
