Swelling in underarm
My wife complaints of swelling in underarm (right hand armpit) and it pains mostly during pre menstural cycle. And the pain vanishes post menstural cycle. We consulted doctor and they said it was fat tissues and nothing to worry about. But she is scared since the pain seems to be continuing every month.Please advise.
