Lump in armpit muscle

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in armpit muscle

lump

I recently discovered when i raise my right arm, there is a 'lump'. However, i cannot tell whether it is normal as in a muscle or bone from my shoulder area or indeed a lump. I can see it when i raise my arm straight up, and it is kinda in the area where the arm meets the center of the armpit. It is rather large, around a golf ball size. On my left arm there is a very similar 'lump' but just a slight bit smaller.
Hello, Doctor-- Within the past four weeks, I have engaged in protected sex with two women who have numerous sexual partners (escorts). I'm not writing to discuss the relative risk involved, but I have been worried about a lump under my right armpit that I found today. I found it accidentally when showering. I wanted to ask about "armpit lymph node swelling.
at the hospital comfirmed today that it is a swollen muscle in my armpit. I am not sure that sounds right, concidering that just four months ago, my Surgeon says that it was lymphnoids, and that we will make sure it does not grow. I have had this thing for more than a year, and is not getting smaller. I do get pain in my ribs, as well as my back and neck, also for the past month, I have been nautious, and get very dizzy. Every time I go to the doc.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what eles beside a infection or cancer could cause a lump in your armpit? I had a sergeon tell me it was a tendon or a ligiment, But I know whatever it is, Its definitly pinching a nerve cause I have shooting pains in my shoulder I cant lift any thing heavy with that arm and some time it throbs with a weird kind of pain that I know is not a muscle. The other day at work my pinky and ring fingers went numb for a long time.
This additional information should not exceed my 3,000 letter limit. Here goes: at the end of the 2nd day, the lump under the skin of my armp no longer hurts. Now, I just feel a lump. Everything I said above still holds true, particularly the facts that the lump seems to me in the "muscle area" of the armpit, instead of the hollow of the armpit.
It's still there, a litlle bigger then it was (but maybe it's just because I'm scared)ΒΈ it's on the top of the armpit closer to the muscle and in one position of the hand you can't see it and in another it's clearly visible.i'm breastfeeding so i cant check my breasts propely. Can someone tell me is it the reason to worry and what to do?
It feel like I pulled a muscle in my left shoulder and there is a pinching pain under my left arm. If you could advise me in anyway it would be appreciated. Thank you.
I found a lump/knot in my right armpit, it is tender to the touch? I also do not have health ins.?!? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/228124'>Very small but tender lump under left arm</a>.
hi! i have a little pea sized lump in my armpit. for about a months or 2, can't remember exactly. it is close to where the arm joines the chest but in the armpit. it is not painful, maybe when i touch it too much it becomes sensitive. i am 19 weeks pregnant as well. went to gp who felt it and said it is probably cyst asked me to come back in 1 month if it grows bigger. but i am still worried, could it be cancer? it is close to the surface of the skin, but there is nothing on the skin surface.
For 7 months now, I have noticed a lump and just recently a second in my right armpit. It is not painfull, not itchy, soft, the first is about the size of a large marble and the second a small one. I can feel it as soon as I lift my arm, but it seems gone when my arm is down. After I first notticed I waited about a month to go see my family doctor, in case it disapeard by itself and was just a swollen gland,,but it never left.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed a lump in my right armpit - it's right at the top of the armpit, in the top left corner right along the border of the pectoral muscle. It feels about 1, maybe 1.5cm large, round and rubbery, and I think it's mobile (it feels like it slips away when I palpate it). It typically does not hurt, though I have noticed a couple of times I've gone to feel it it's been a little sore.
If the large lump all of a sudden appeared it would seem most likely it was a torn muscle. but if you have had it a while and it is tender and a medical professional said it could be cancer and did nothing as for as testing for you., then I would think it would be time to go to someone else who I could get some answers from. Don't wait have this looked at soon. .A lot of times there is not a lot of pain associated with cancer in the early stages. (but there are exceptions).
I have swelling in my armpit. It hasn't gotten any bigger but it hasn't gone away either. What could that be? And I have had a lump in my breast for awhile. If it was cancerous how long would it have taken me to find out?
I have a lump in my armpit that I think has been there for a while. I know for sure I saw it a month ago, but went through 2 surgeries (unrelated?) and that was my last concern - I thought it was a muscle. It has never been painful, red, 'angry' or anything else. I think it's gotten a little bigger, but if it has, it hasn't grown much at all. Last week I went to my doctor and showed it to her.
I have a sore spot in my left armpit. Its just a small area sore to the touch. no swelling or lump. its like on the muscle that goes to my arm. where are the lymphs would the be closer to the chest?

Hello, My 10 year old daughter has a large lump in her armpit. When we first noticed it, it was about the size of a pencil eraser or smaller. Now it has grown larger than a silver dollar in about 2 months time. It hurts her, but only when she lifts her arm....it doesn't bother her at all if she keeps her arm down. It is very hard and does not move at all....poor thing though she is in pain when I try to move it.
He's got a big lump (probably parts of the torn muscle) on the inside of his elbow and one in the armpit. A muscle that tears is like a rubber band snapping. I am irritated that it takes so long to get the ultrasound and biopsy done but I realize there are things that are worse... Can anyone tell me what happens when he's gotten the diagnose? Is the muscle-piece that's injured going to be surgically removed or will it be untangled and sutured up?

Using a deodorant instead of an antiperspirant can help to prevent an infection in the future.Fatty tissue (lipoma) is another growth that can appear in the axilla area as well as boils and abscesses. Sometimes the lymph nodes can become swollen as a result of a virus, vaccination or bacterial infection.
, no pain swallowing, but an irregular feeling like a lump or abrasion) WITH what seemed to be salivary gland pain, two (first tender, then hard) lymph glands in neck, and pain/throb in armpit, groin, and femoral region (no noticed lumps except swollen pain in groin while on Augmentin) and ear pain. I will say that I have chewed tobacco or smoked cigarettes for approx. 14 years.
In October 2009 a lymph node in my neck was incredibly swollen and the swelling spread (only on one side of my face) and caused the right side of my face to double in size, I went to a doctor and they didn't know what it was so they just gave my antibiotics. The swelling then decreased, but I had noticed that one particular lymph node on my right side just under my jaw remained slightly swollen, but it didn't hurt and wasn't fixed so I wasn't concerned.
However, yesterday my armpit began to hurt in the very same spot, with another small lump. Today the bad smells returned, so now I am linking the two. No, I have not had a sinus infection recently, nor have I had congestion or pain and pressure around the eyes. I'm a bit curious if anyone has had similar symptoms, or have a guess as to what it might be?
it actually draws the skin in about half way up my arm on the underside when I try to stretch my arm completely out. The lump or whatever it could be seems to have gotten smaller but it is causing pain all the way down my upper arm. I have a doctor's appt. next week but am extremely worried and have not been able to find out much information from searching.
First Doctor checked my breast and was told she felt a lump in my breast and also my under armpit too... Then another doctor came along and checked too but he said don't think so. So I was sent to a mammogram. After a mammogram, I was told that my breast is fine.. and send me home. But I feel not satisfied because my husband, GP and first doctor felt there is a lump in my breast and my under armpit too. I was hoping to having Ultrasound but no no because mammogram came back clear..
Hi - I was dx with a non palpable invasive ductal tumour in Jan 2003, result of a normal 3 yrly mammo. I had no lump in either the breast or axilla (armpit) that could be felt by me or my GP - it just showed up on the mammo and ultrasound. When I look back now I realise that the shooting pains I use to get down my arm were perhaps due to the cancer in my armpit, but of course at that time had no reason to think it was serious.
There are so many reasons for this type of pain. One can be from just pulling a muscle in the area. There are muscles in the upper arm from which pain can radiate down into the axillary. Even pain from the pectoral muscle or rib cage can find its way into the armpit area. There are some serious causes for this type of pain also. In my opinion if you are still having this pain you should consult your PCP. Please let us know how you are doing. I wish you the very best.
