I have truncal lymphedema and it presents in much the same way. Swelling in the breasts (I had a BMX) and pain and tenderness in the armpits. I was told it was just a seroma by my plastic surgeon. I basically had to diagnose myself.
Do get in to a lymphedema specialist asap. The longer you wait, the harder it is to treat. They can help with manual drainage, compression garments and possibly even kinesio taping. It really does help.
If it is truncal lymphedema, the first thing they'll tell you to do is to ditch the underwire bras. I've been told I can never wear one again.
Good luck! Please PM me if you need more info.
