swollen glands, swollen armpit, breast discharge

At the beginning of the summer I started having milky discharge from both breasts. I had a prolactin level ran and it was a high normal number. So I dealt with this for a few months until finally going to OB. She did a breast exam by hand and felt nothing irregular. Milk was coming from both breasts and more than one duct. I hadn't nursed in 1.5 years so she felt I'm just slightly out of the window for nursing moms to stop lactating. Plus I had the test reran and my number dropped 6 points. However, the very next month, prior to my period my arm fell asleep for over an hour. Then my armpit started hurting. Then next day it swelled and I found a lymph node the size of a pea. Then I got my period. The next day the pain moved over to above my breast right where your brastrap would fall. Then I ended up with two small peas that hurt in that area. The next day I got two peas above the other breast too. These didn't hurt as much. We'll we're one month later now. My period is due in one day. And wouldn't you know my arm is starting to tingle and hurt again. What's going on? I did see my family doc and he doesn't feel it's a problem. He said it's normal for women to get swollen glands during period. I've never heard of this. What's going on? Is this a sign of breast cancer? If it was cancer would the nodes come and go or would they just stay? Any advice is highly welcomed and so appreciated. I'm going crazy sitting here scouring the net for info. Please help!!
