Brief Answer: Lump in the breast warrants doctor examination Detailed Answer: Hi Pain and tenderness in the both the breasts could be because of cyclical hormonal changes or due to inflammation in the breast. A new lump in the left breast concerns me. It always requires a doctor's examination to note the nature of the lump and record the findings. The other symptoms of shooting pain in the lower right forearm may be incidental and may not be due to breast changes. You can address this issue while you see your regular doctor for breast examination. Hope this answers you.
