Hi, I am 27 years of age. I started experiencing sharp shooting pains under my left. My ribs were sore too. Now it has come to a point where my breast feels sore aswell as my armpit all the way to my shoulder blade. Please what is wrong with me

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern.

Breast pain is NOT commonly a symptom of cancer.

Anonymous, have you recently changed your level of exercise or had trauma, such as a fall or strain on the upper left side of your body? The symptoms could be associated with muscle strain or injury.

If these symptoms persist or worsen, please contact your primary care physician and schedule a physical exam.
