I have some pain in my left breat and in the arm pit. I recently had a mamogram and no cancer was found. I did have breast cancer 12 years ago but no sign of it returning. Is there anything I should do except take some ibuprofen.
Since ,you had a recent mamogram so I doubt that it is return of cancer.Most likely it is muscular pain or pectoralis major pain which is involved in pushing movement like playing tennis.As you know that breast lies on that muscle .So it is most likely muscular pain only.Just take some pain killer regularly for one week.If symptoms persist then you might need to see your physician for examination.
Wish you good health.
