How old are you?
What medications are you taking?
Have you had breast cancer or arm pit surgery before?
Most likely a pulled or strained pectoralis major or minor muscle which attaches through the axilla or arm pit
Work on stretching this muscle by reaching up and out, grabbing a door frame and reining away from your hand to feel the pull in your chest and axilla
Rest the arm and pectoralis muscle as well
Your symptoms don't sound like cancer or anything worrisome
let me know if you have other questions.
