I am new here. I am throwing out this question to see if anyone has had a similar experience.
I am a 7 year breast cancer survivor. For the last 5 weeks I have had tenderness to the touch with not much swelling to my left armpit. (The opposite side of where I had breast cancer 7 years ago). I went and saw my breast doctor 2 weeks ago regarding it just because of my history. She did a mammogram and ultrasound and could not find anything. She decided to do an MRI which I had this past Friday. I am still waiting for the results. Since Friday I have noticed some swelling now, which I did not have before, and the pain has increased, where before it only hurt when pressure was applied, now it hurts all the time.
Has anyone had a similar experience? What did you find out? I was not thinking it was cancer because my breast is fine and my mammogram was good. But I have read some things online from women who had the same situation and it was cancer. So confused and a bit anxious now.
