Okay, then this doesn't correspond to breast cancer.

Very unlikely or almost impossible to have a node in this area from a recurrent breast cancer.

Doctor said it was unusually to have node in this area
Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 5 months ago

The biopsy may be indicated for other reasons like for evaluation of the enlarged lymph node (depending upon its size).

But a cancerous lymph nodes in this region from the breast should give lymph nodes first in the chest and neck.

Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 5 months ago

But to clear any doubts, may be a biopsy can give the answer.

But I would rather do a mammogram and CT of the chest first, before deciding a biopsy for this area.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Would you recommend a biopsy then
Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 5 months ago

Because you are thinking of breast cancer recurrence, that's why the best answer will come from ct chest

Honestly, doesn't look like related to breast cancer.

Esophageal cancer can be detected by endoscopy more reliably than lymph node.

*is experiencing severe chest pain that comes and goes for moments at a time, maybe a minute or 30secs at a time, and he describes it as feeling like his chest is on fire while he inhales, but feels cold as he exhales. He also has difficulty breathing while his chest is in pain, and as soon as the pain subsides and breathing becomes easier, he feels very weak immediately after. He's been feeling this for the past few days; it all began with what we assumed was a panic attack. That was when the pain and difficulty breathing began, only the first time, it was so severe that he momentarily (about 2 or 3 secs) passed out. Was just really looking for some help dealing with symptoms in the desperate hope that a hospital visit isn't necessary. … read more
