Hi I was wondering...

Hi I was wondering if I should consult my doctor about a lump I noticed within the last few days under my armpit, aslo there are lumps in both of my breasts that were looked at about 6 or 7 months ago and were diagnosed as cysts but they are still there. Do you think those lumps in my breasts could be connected to the lump in my armpit?

Doctor's Assistant: When did you first notice this? When was your last mammogram?

I noticed the lump in my armpit sometime last week not sure what day it was and my last mammogram was when I got the lumps in my breasts checked around 6 or 7 months ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I know of. i'm not sure what they would need to know...i believe my grandmother on my mom's side had breast cancer years ago.

Since breasts drain into lymph nodes located in the armpit, they are connected. Lymphnodes n the armpit get swollen n breast diseases so you must get them rechecked to see the present status of the disease so that treatment can be suggested accordingly.
