Lymph node?: It's possible this is an enlarged lymph node. Lymph nodes often become enlarged when that area of the body is fighting off some kind of infection- whether big or small. If you have other symptoms like cough or shortness of breath, this may explain. Also could be a small cyst under the skin that could be evaluated by your doc to see if needs to be excised.

I have intermittent burning sensations in the upper outer side of right breast and my ribs under y right arm are tender to the touch at times.?

Cause unclear: This could be a number of things. One thing that does jump out is that it is all on the right side. It is mostly in your chest and right breast.

If worsens see the doc ...Read more

Having unbearable pain only in the right arm. My mom has been developing pain in her right arm for the past few weeks and seems that it's up to a point where she can't straighten her arm. She said her entire right side of her body is sore but not as painf

She: She should see her primary care provider. If she does not have one she can seek out a family medicine doctor or internist (internal medicine). A detailed history and physical will need to be done in order to come up with possible diagnoses. Tests will then be done to confirm or exclude the possibilities. Just based on your post, it sounds like she may be dealing with musculoskeletal pain, a gout attack, or even a viral illness. It is very difficult to say at this point. If she is having any chest pain, palpitations, neurological deficits (slurred speech, weakness, etc) she should present to the emergenct room. Best of luck, . ...Read more
