This pain is in my left chest, breast, armpit, and under the breast. It's a burning, aching pain, radiating into my shoulder, arm, and mid-chest/back. I get short of breath and sweaty at times.
This kind of pain doesn't sound like a typical sign of breast cancer. Instead, it sounds like symptoms you might experience from a heart attack.
If you're having this pain right now, please call your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room. If the pain has subsided, call your doctor and arrange for an appointment to get checked out. It's better to see the doctor and find out there's nothing seriously wrong, than to miss treatment for heart problems.
I just had a Cathetharism of heart thinking the left breast and underarm pain were due to heart condition, my heart is perfect coronaries arteries but pain persists>
Thank goodness your heart is OK. Now you have more time to investigate what might be causing your pain. What did the cardiologist think? The next step is a breast specialist and breast imaging tests if you haven't had them already. I hope you soon find an answer to what is causing your pain and that it is easily treated.
Hi - since this thread started awhile ago, you might try clicking on MzD's name, in blue, to send her a private message; she might not be checking here anymore. I hope you've discussed this pain with your regular doctor; it's not a heart issue, and doesn't sound like any typical breast cancer symptoms, but you still want to get to the bottom of it, see what's causing it and if there's anything you can do to get more comfortable. Good luck - hope you feel better soon. PJH
