I have been having pain between my left breast and armpit. No lumps just pain for the last 3 weeks and it's located in one area only. Could it be cancer related?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Generally, breast pain is not a sign of breast cancer. This can be due to a trauma to the area, fibrocystic breast tissue, certain medications and many other. Are you having any other symptoms? Such as nipple discharge or swelling and redness to the area. If the discomfort does continue, you should see your doctor. He might suggest having a mammogram or breast ultrasound. 

Hope this has helped?
