Fibrocystic breast tissue, swollen painful armpit lump, hurt all over -- I am scared!
Hi everyone. I am 29 years old and my doctor said I have fibrocystic breast tissue.
My breasts are sore especially when touched. And there is a swollen, very painful under the skin lump under my armpit. Went back to the doc yesterday and he said it is an infected lymph node.
I feel sore all over. It almost feels like the other armpit node is sore too. I am scared it is a cancer sign but the doctor is very dismissive. I don't want to let soemthing serious go untreated. It's like my whole torso is sore with the most painful area being the left armpit/breast.
Doc gave me Zithromax and sent me home. He didn't seem to think any further investigation was necessary. I am still in great discomfort and don't know what to do. I am scared it could be cancer. Breast cancer, lung cancer, lymphoma, my mind is worrying about all these different possibilities.
