Pain Around the Breast/Armpit Area
Breast pain is commonly associated with a woman’s monthly cycle and does not necessarily have a direct correlation to breast cancer. Oftentimes, pain will come and go based on where a woman is within her cycle and it is not something to worry about. However, if you notice a constant pain that doesn’t seem to get better or worsens, it is advised to seek medical attention for a proper breast examination.
