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?
In: In a patient who is actively breast feading a palpable lump or cord can be indicative of a clogged duct. This condition is treatable by your physician or lactation consultant. However, if there is an identifiable "vein", your assessment may be correct. Regardless, you should report this to your primary doctor or your ob/gyn physician. Depending on their assessment, an ultrasound can be very helpful to futher evaluate whether it is a vascular issue or breast duct issue. ...Read more

1wk after 10 blood draws w venflon in antecubital space after extreme tourniquet, veins right under armpit hurt a lot not constantly no redness. Why?
Veinous inflammation: The antecubital vein which was probably the target of the blood draw runs up towards the armpit where it joins other veins. You may have had a small blood clot where the needle was placed that then traveled up to your armpit. It will dissolve on its own. Or the pressure on the vein from the repeated tourniquet may have stretched and inflamed it. Ouch. Very sorry about your ordeal. ...Read more

I exclusively pump milk for son. I noticed a gland under my armpit No lump jus feels like a rolling vein or something. Is it a lymph node swollen?
Could be?: It is possible and could be a location for a lymph node. Without a physical exam it's hard for me to say exactly what it is. So glad you are getting that good breast milk for your baby! My other questions would be... Is the lump sore or tender? Is there any redness overlying? Does it move with your finger? Or does it seem to be " fixed" Do you have a family history of breast cancer? ...Read more
