Under arm pain
I have under arm pain (left arm) for the past two weeks. It's sore, and feels tender when I press inside my arm pit. It also stings when I am not touching it. I tried taking two anti-inflammatory tablets today but these didn't help the pain. I had the same pain (same arm pit) some years ago, and went for a breast check and nothing was found. The pain went away after a few months. I went to the doctor today, and she couldn't feel a lump in the breast or under arm area. I have also tried evening primrose oil.
I'm wondering if there is some sort of scan I can have to try and identify what is causing this pain? The doctor told me to come back in a few weeks if the pain is still there.
I had laser hair removal for the first time a few weeks ago but can't remember if the pain was there before. But as this (pain) has happened to me before, I don't think the laser hair removal is the cause, especially as there is no pain in the right arm pit.
