Question: Pain in left breast & lump behind left ear!!


 *Scared* - Fri May 13, 2005 12:19 am

I have pain in the left breast but no noticable lumps, my breasts are very small so I can easily confuse glands with lumps so I am not 100% sure. Sometimes I feel a lump directly where the pain is and sometimes I have trouble finding it. I have had this symptom for about a week. The pain is localized and on the underside of my breast half way between the middle of my breast and the outer edge.

I have a lump behind my left ear surrounded by an unusual onset of painful pimples (I have never broken out in this area). I noticed the pimples first around 2 weeks ago - The pimples brought the lump to my attention so I don't know how long it has been there. The lump is hard & not painful. It does not move easily. It's about pea sized and visible. There is nothing similar behind my right ear.

I am also a dj and hearing in my left ear has become worse over the years. I don't know how that would correlate with my breast pain though.

Cancer?
Going Deaf?


PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hi! Check out with your doc to see if you have rubella or not. Breast pain can be a common symptom of benign breast disease but it is always safe to have your breasts clinically examined to rule out any underlying pathology.
