What Do Swelling In The Arms And Lumps In The Breast Indicate?

default
Posted on Sat, 4 Nov 2017
Question: I need a doctor in XXXXXXX VA. I have swelling in both forearms with sores that will not heal. I also have a lump in my breast and the whole thing feels lumpy. The swelling in arms have lumps filled with a clear sticky fluid that usually erupts under the skin. I have had 2 rounds of antibiotics, orally, and 1 topically. None worked. I have had 2 sonograms/ultrasounds of my breast and a nipple biopsy. All were negative. The doctors I have seen do not know what is wrong with me. This has been going on for 3 1/2 weeks now. I have no insurance and don't know where to turn. Most of my symptoms seem to mirror Lymphedma but there are some exceptions.

Breast cancer has to be ruled out. It is possible that the axillary lymph nodes are involved and that could lead to swelling in both forearms. Visit the doctor at the earliest and get your condition evaluated. I would insist you not to ignore it even if you do not have insurance.
