Right Armpit Pain During Menstruation?
Hi, my brother was at my age 16 I feel my right armpit feels uncomfortable and enlarges a little during menstruation. Is it dangerous?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hormonal fluctuations around menstrual periods can trigger swelling of the breast parenchyma, not infrequently even spread to the armpit area. This condition is often characterized not only by its swollen size, but also by its increased sensitivity so that it can easily be painful, tight, stiff, or cramped. In some people, it can even be found a lump in the breast area that feels more clearly when pressed. Provided that this complaint only appears temporarily, and improves by itself after menstruation, often your condition is not dangerous.
However, while it is generally reasonable, your condition can also occur due to other causes, for example:
Lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes) Skin infection around the armpit or breast, for example due to shingles, acne, ulcers Inflammation of the armpit or breast due to other reasons, such as contact dermatitis, insect bites Postherpetic neuralgia muscle disorders Disorders of the breast, for example breast abscess, mastitis , benign or malignant tumors Psychosomatic disorders, etc. If the pain and swelling that appears very often recurs, and does not improve quickly after menstruation, we recommend that you continue to see it directly to the doctor for further evaluation. In addition to physical examination, the doctor may also conduct other supporting examinations, for example X-rays, ultrasound, biopsy, and so on depending on needs. In the meantime, to help you resolve your complaint, the following steps can be tried:
Compress the breast that feels uncomfortable with warm water. When it feels uncomfortable, do not always indulge in too much weight using the right side of your body. Keep your personal hygiene always, and your armpit area.
