In brief: Could be anytime

Hello, The breasts are hormone sensitive and since there can be breast tissue in the under-arm area it is very likely that this tisse is responding to the period hormones.
Since there are hormones present at varying levels throughout the month you may have swelling , tenderness or a variety of symptoms at any time.
