    For the past three days i have felt pain above my right breast almost beside my armpit. I dont think there is a lump on it but i felt pain everytime i press it. Does it something to do with my breast or just merely a nerve problem? Anyway, i have the plan to have a check up.

    Mary, this could be a nerve problem, it could be a cyst, an infected lymph node... there are lots of possibilities. Breast cancer doesn't usually come associated with pain, so I wouldn't worry too much; but I'm glad you're getting it checked out, anyway, as any issues around your breast should always be checked. Best of luck to you - PJH
