Does anyone have a similar situation?  My arm is super sore.  The forearm is especially tender on the inside.  I have not had any surgeries, only a biopsy 3 weeks ago.  The arm was sore before that too.  I think it's because the lymph nodes are swollen but the pain is increasing and that's beginning to concern me.  Also, the breast that has BC is a different color, it's more pink...  one more question while i have everyone's attention, is there a site like this for teens whose moms have bc?

Thanks for any and all help.

Hi tkcmom: I had left arm pain about 3 weeks prior to my diagnosis of BC.  In fact the soreness comes and goes.  The BC breast is red and spotchy which happens with some breast cancers.  As for the teens site I am not sure, but she could start one.

 Peace and laughter be with you.

Thanks for the response.  I was looking up info on IBC and i think i'll call the dr today and let her know what is going on.  i see her on wednesday but don't really feel like waiting until then.  I'm going to tell my daughter about starting her own thread on here.  great idea.  Thank you again!
