Question: Painful lump on back and lump in breast

 meshie - Thu Feb 02, 2006 10:23 pm

I am a 31 y/o female. I found a lump in my lt. lower breast. I developed pain just behind my armpit, which is extreme and severe. I now feel a lump in that area. I am scheduled for an ultrasound, but would like some input on this. I am not on any current medications. I have no past diagnoses. I have a FH of hypo/hyperthyroidism.

User avatar Hello,

I hope your appointment went well. The presence of a lump in the breast accompanied by an axillary mass is always a concerning picture. It could be due to an infection or inflammation in the breast tissue with an enlargement of the draining lymph nodes but cancer must always be ruled out.

Best regards.
