Left armpit pain
lolo71 posted:
I have had pain (from pressure) in my left armpit for about 10 weeks. I am a 6 year breast cancer survivor. I have seen my cancer doctor, she did a mammogram, ultrasound and mri, could not find anything. She sent me to my general doctor, who had know idea what it could be so she put me on antibiotics for 10 days. That did not help at all either. So my general doctor has sent me back to my cancer doctor who know is getting opinions from other doctors. She thought maybe it was a rupture in my implant, but I really don't see any change in how my breast looks. If it was an infection I would have thought it would have responded to the antibiotics. Now I am wondering if it is possible the imaging missed something? I have heard from other survivors that imaging missed cancer/lumps/etc. Anyone with any insight would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
