Hi, First thing I want to say is my doctor visit went well and my CT and ultrasound all shows normal. My mind is cleared by this but my doctor told me the way my pain is and how my underarm looks is like it's skin related issue. He told me I should be seen by a dermatologist for such matter. I'm glad at least it's nothing serious. I mentioned to my doctor that could it be something called folliculits and he was explaining the same thing I was explaining. I'm going to see a dermatologist soon and to start to get this matter solved. With a sure confident feeling I feel such matter makes sense for being a dermatologic issue. Do you think the same thing? Hopefully in everyway things start getting better and it's a really exausting situation for me. A part of me is scared though and I do know I'm in good hands.

One thing I'm wondering about my CT is when I was looking at my results I saw this sentence there "the visualized bone show dextroscoliosis of spine". I do know I have back problem which is called scoliosis and I didnt think CT show such thing. I know what is scoliosis but I don't know what is dextroscoliosis?

One other thing is I have a cyst in my right breast which sometimes it's painful I even mentioned it to my doctor and I'm just wondering what causes cyst to be painful?

Thank You,

Thank you for your reply. I'm going to see a dermatologist next week as my doctor told me that my under arm problem looks like it's skin related issue. Hopefully in everyway everything goes well and that I know what's the cause of the problem. I just hope nothing serious as long as I get better in such a hard situation.

Thank You,

Hi Melissa,
Dextroscoliosis is simply a term referring to scoliosis in which the primary curve is to the right, when viewed from behind. Dextroscoliosis means that the curvature is going toward the right side of the body.
Large breast cysts can put pressure on nearby breast tissue, causing breast pain or discomfort
Hope this answers your questions.
