What type of breast cancer that cause the breast to swell and cause under the armpit to have a painful lump? And does that mean the cancer has spread

What type of breast cancer that cause the breast to swell and cause under the armpit to have a painful lump? And does that mean the cancer has spread

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

My sister has two medium sized lumps on her chest between her shoulders and neck  and one under her armpit. What could be the  cause.

Chest lumps: The causes of your sister's lumps can be multiple. It doesn't sound like they are in her breasts, though, but if they are, she needs to have them checked promptly. I suspect you may be referring to lymph nodes since lymph nodes are located in the armpits and in the areas between the shoulders and neck. I would have them checked as well as those lymph nodes may need prompt attention. ...Read more

Doctor can check: One's doctor can carefully examine the breasts and armpits to see it they feel normal. Breasts normally extend towards the armpits, but if a woman has swelling in her armpit area each time she has a baby and breastfeeds, she might have some extra breast tissue (milk-producing glands) in the armpit area. That would be an "extra" breast, a small lump without an extra nipple. ...Read more
