Could the pain in the breast and swelling in he underarm be due to the infected hair follicle?
Hi, it was three months ago when i noticed that my underarm was swollen. Iwas told that it was an infected hair follicle. It never got sore or red or ahead on it. Now my breast hurts. I went to the dr. She said that she is sending me for a mammogram. I also have a mass in my uterus and it has been there for two years. No one has done anything anout it or wanted to check it out. I was also told that i had pre cancer cells on my pap test but they went a way. Also my white blood count was low at one point and then went back up. Does it sound like cancer and shouldvi be concerned.
Hello. Thanks for writing to us. The breast pain and swelling in the underarm can be due to an infected hair follicle. Doing a hot compress and taking a mild pain killer can help. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. Regards, Dr. Rakhi Tayal ,For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Rakhi-Tayal
