A few months back I had a cold/respiratory infection I just could not shake for 2 months. I pulled muscles in my neck and cracked a rib from the excessive, nonproductive cough. A few weeks after that, I experienced night sweats several times over a few weeks. One day I randomly felt in my right armpit, and I noticed a lump. I went to my doc, and he felt it was a swollen lymph node and ordered an ultrasound and mammogram.
The radiologist has not yet read the mammogram (small town), but the exam by the doc turned up no obvious lumps. The radiologist felt the lump was suspicious and recommended biopsy, which I have next week. They have yet to perform any type of blood work on me.
In the few days since I have been to the doc, the armpit and side of the breast have become very sore. My legs also feel extremely weak when I stand or walk. This is all new as initially it was a nontender lump. Obviously the biopsy in 6 days should tell the story, but i wonder if I should go back since there is now pain. This process has taken a full month to reach this stage, and a month of wondering if you have cancer is a long time. Thanks for reading this and offering any feedback you may have.
