From the location of the pain you mentioned,it is very likely that you have tenderness in the "axillary tail of spence" which is a part of your breast which extends to your armpits. As you might be aware of, you can get some breast tenderness before your periods. As this "axillary tail of spence" is a normal part of breast present in all women, you might develop tenderness in this area also.
