underarm issue

Hi there!

Has anyone ever had occasional pains in their "outer" underarm area? (the side near the breast) - I've had this for several months, and I've been told it's either muscular or homone related - I still tend to obsess about it - it's not an issue except for the fact that I still tend to worry about it - I lost my mom to cancer in October - I had a blood test done in November for another issue, and the CBC came back normal - if the underarm thing was serious, wouldn't it have come up in the blood test? The left and right side feel the same - I'm actually sore from feeling them frequently to make sure I don't feel anything suspicious!

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Re: underarm issue

Hi Supermom,

I have had pain in my underarms before. It was under my arms, sort of on the side of my breasts. I rub on them - but, that just makes them worse. Mine turned out to be anxiety/stress. That is just where my anxiety first surfaced! Then it went to chest pains and such. If you have not been checked by a gynocologist, you should go for an appointment. Then, they will probably do a mammogram or ultrasound, plus a normal dr. palpitation of your breasts. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Good Luck!
