9m baby just kicked on lower breast. It hurt a little  and was painful. Now feeling stiffness next to armpit. Is it ok? Or should I be worried?

And the baby is quite strong by now! a swift kick with baby's foot or heel can be very painful under the ribcage and can even refer pain elsewhere in arm area as you describe. Nothing wrong, i've never heard of a baby actually 'injurying' its mother this way, but can definitely bruise a mom. Hang in there! ...Read more

Possibly IBC: Inflammatory breast cancer occurs suddenly with breast pain, redness, or swelling. It is very fast-growing and spreads quickly. It looks like an infection, so doctors often try antibiotics first, delaying diagnosis. However, infection is also a possibility. See a doctor immediately for these symptoms. If it is cancer, your symptoms don't mean it has spread. But you need a biopsy of any lump! ...Read more
