Re: Left armpit and breast swollen and painful

The most likely explanation is an infection, treatable with antibiotics, such as infectious mastitis. Or it could be something else. See a doctor promptly.

I agree with the other poster.

Infection is most likely. Either yeast, or bacteria.

Re: Left armpit and breast swollen and painful

I am very glad you are getting this looked at so quickly at least for your peace of mind. This will probably turn out to be (in the big picture) no big deal. Hang in there, and take care, Sharon
