Pain In The Left Armpit But No Lumps?
Hello. I am 18 years old. I want to ask, how come after you work on the left armpit suddenly it hurts. But the right doesn’t hurt. Actually it doesn’t really hurt if it’s not pressed. NO lump, no redness. But I’m afraid of getting breast / lymph node cancer. According to the doctor, is this just an ordinary irritation due to the deodorant that I bought for 10 thousand (rexona) or because of something else (cancer, etc)? Thank you.
