41 y/o female with pain in upper part of left side chest  that comes and goes and under armpit.Should i be concerned?

CP...yes!: To me, CP is CP until otherwise ruled-out (for a heart attack). If you haven't seen your md & had an ekg, do it! women present differently than men. If you have a family history of heart attacks, it's even more urgent to see your md. He will probably want a cardiac stress test, blood, & an ekg. Do you smoke? Have high bp? High cholesterol? Diabetes? These are very important to know. See your md! ...Read more

Many things: Whatever it is, you need to see your doctor. If these are in fact lymph nodes, then you may need to see a surgeon. Possibilities include infection, inflammatory or malignancy. Call your doctor and have him/her feel these areas. ...Read more

Very unlikely: It would be extremely unusual, but not impossible, for this to be a breast cancer. Any persistent symptom in the breast, and certainly any mass, should be examined by a doctor. You may need to have an ultrasound of the area done. It is always better to look into these things than ignore them. ...Read more

Could be many things: Enlargement of lymph node can be caused by many things- like trauma/irritation around the area, infection - bacterial, viral etc, autoimmune disease, cancer etc. Judging from the duration of your problem- things like irritation/trauma to the left upperarm/arm pit- i.e. Shaving, boils, scratching over the skin on left arm etc- can cause the enlargement of the lymph node there. ...Read more

Hidradenitis supp.: You may just have 'sebaceous cysts' or another condition called 'hidradenitis suppurativa' which occurs deep in the skin around oil (sebaceous) glands and hair follicles. The parts of the body affected — armpits (axilla) and groin, for example — are also the main locations of apocrine sweat glands.
