    when i started my periods at the age 13,i had lumps in my armpit.when checked with the docter,she said nothing to worry about,its just hormonal change.then the lump vanished.

    now i am 26yrs,and since 2years i get lump & pain during my periods, & after the periods are over its completely gone.but since a month,the pain didnt go & now i feel that pain is very bad.i have few lumps on my both breasts.now i realised from 2days,i have pain in my armpit too.i am really rreally nervous & worried.

    i am vegetarian by birth.i never took coffee & tea,no alcohol & ciggretts ever in my life.i am married since 1.5years,and he has been my sex partner only.my mother's elder sister died because cancer(but not breast cancer ) and my father's sister removed her breast(because of the breast cancer).

    i am not pregnant too,did check up .please help me.i am not able to concentrate on anything & internally i am very much worried(i told my parents & hubby not to worry though).

    Dyna, the lumps that come and go with your period are nothing to worry about.  You will want to have a doctor check out any lumps that have lasted more than a month.  Since you have several in both breasts, these are unlikely to be breast cancer, but only a doctor can tell you for sure.  Please don't worry though; even when the doctor needs to biopsy a lump, the vast majority of lumps biopsied are not cancer.  It's good that you are living such a healthy life style and that you are paying attention to changes in your breasts.
