Ok I've spoke to many before. Based on something in experiencing I wander if any of you have health with it. On a prior post I told everyone I was diagnosed with gynocastemia after multiple ultrasounds, diagnostic mammogram, and physical exams. Unliteral right breast swollen and areola enlarged with tenderness. Anyways, what I'm getting to is something that developed 2 weeks ago right side only. Pain, tightness, numbness that goes from middle of upper back like spine area into the shoulder and down my entire arm into my hands and even fingers. Has anyone health with this before? I have diabetes so I know nerve pain when I experience it. Thanks for reading this

Superman, I don't think you are going to have many responses because there are very few males posting herehere or males with gynecomastia and the ones there are have weighed in on your other post. It gets confusing when you start multiple threads because people can't respond to you in context to the “big picture" with what all is going on, so why don't you copy and paste this question into your other thread? Also, why “breast cancer” in your post title? You have been pretty definitively told you don’t have breast cancer.

Superman17, I don't know anything about your diagnosis, but I do know if you have a lot of swelling it can irritate the nerves running around your ribs and then it can run down your arm. Did your primary tell you to apply ice? What is your plan of treatment? These are questions you should be asking your doctor. Best of luck to you.

Pain and numbness originating in the mid upper back and going down the arm is often a nerve thing. You might want to see a back specialist or neurologist about it.

About nerve issues and breast cancer, my tumor was painless. I did, however, on rare occasion, get a pain on my areola like a sudden bug bite, but it was very superficial feeling and I have no idea if it was related to the cancer.
