Back in May 05 I notced my left arm and under arm was swollen as well as the breast and had been feeling bad fever night sweats hair changes so I went to my PCP and he sugested a Mamo, A lump was found deep in the breast and two biopsys were done both were negitave, had my follow up mamo and nothing had changed other than you could see all the lymph nodes but I was told it was nothing to worry about, all blood test were fine.

Long story short, the arm is still swollen as well as the breast and now there is pain in the shoulder at time is unbearable.
