HI im 24 and was just diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer today and I am also having pains in my breast and lymph glands, im ringing the doctor today to see what they say will report back on their info! xx
I had the same sort of pain, I found it disappeared once I started chemo but did have the odd twinge here and there. Speak to your Onc if you're really worried but I think it's quite normal and common. Good luck xxxxx
I think, terrifying as it is, shooting pains, aches, stitches are all par for the course. I am 8 months past diagnosis and still have them. That's after chemo, lumpectomy and at beginning of rads.
At the beginning shooting pains were what alerted me to a problem without there being a lump. 10 days later after prodding around again bam! golf ball sized lump out of nowhere! (40mm) I was reassured it's the lump pressing on nerves which cause this.
Apart from this at start I had shooting pains all over and still do sometimes, I was just extreme stress as despite me thinking it was rampaging though my body, it wasn't as had all clear scans everywhere else. I definitley wasn't imagining it.
