Sore arm pit

I am freaking because I googled hmm

I have had a sore left underarm for a few weeks. Sometimes unnoticeable then suddenly aches. It's not painful as such, more achy. No lumps. I am also breastfeeding and when I express on that side I get half compared to the other side. No lumps in my breast that I can feel. I'm 35. Cancer?

I wouldn't jump to thinking it's cancer.

Go and see your gp but I suffer with pain and painful lumps in my arm pit from time to time and have done since I was about 15 and i'm 35 now. It tends to flare up when I'm run down - lots of lymph nodes there and they swell when your immune system struggles. It can also be a blocked gland due to allergy to anti perspirant or shaving.

Are you prone to anxiety?!

We are not doctors but no, this won't be cancer. This will more than likely be a blocked duct in your arm pit and it'll be gone in a week or so

Yes I have generalized anxiety.

It's been there for about 2 weeks now. Will see GP next week.
