I have had a lump under my armpit for 2 years now. It is starting to hurt me quite a bit. Add to this, I have hypothyroidism and am on Synthroid.

Add to these problems every joint in my body hurts all the time, I have constant pain in my back and severe pain running down my leg from sciatica, I also bruise extremely easy and have some bruises for over 6 months on my arm. I've seen the doctor and so far all my test's come back within normal specs.

I know something is definitely wrong. You are not supposed to be in constant pain and have swollen lymph nodes for this long, and bruises which do not go away are definitely a bad thing. Help please because it is starting to get to me and I'm starting to really lose faith in doctors.

Last year I had a lump in my left breast and the swollen lymph node in my right armpit. I then went to a surgeon who told me I'm much too young for Breast Cancer yet I am 41. So I'm starting to think that because I have state insurance the doctors won't help me. Any ideas??

As it is now I can barely function, I'm unemployed and really no hope of finding work in my current condition. Constant pain and suffering all the time is no way to live and I'm worried that I have cancer and the doctors won't do anything because I have state insurance and they probably won't get paid.
