2 Days ago I discovered a painful large <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. I have not yet gone to see a doctor because I do not get insurance until January. I've looked up different articles in regards to lumps. They say if it's a painless lump that’s hard and fixed in place is more likely to be cancer than one that’s painful, softer, and moveable. Well mine is painful, but hard and fixed in place. From my armpit heading toward my elbow it's red. How worried should I be?
I'm a 23 year old female. I have had a small pea-sized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> for... a long time. I really can't remember for how long I've had it now, it could be as much as a year, or as little as 4 months. At first I though it was just an ingrown hair from shaving/waxing and as I do for other bumps of this kind, I've been waiting for a sign of the hair to surface or a 'whitehead' so to speak, to form so that I could clear it out with a needle if it didn't go on it's own.
Dear worried86, The most common symptom of breast cancer is a painless<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. There could be a number of causes for this pain and discomfort, the first step in finding out what might be causing this is having yourself evaluated by a health care professional. They would be able to ask questions regarding the history of the problem and do a physical examination.
I've had a round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>/bulge under my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> for the past 3 months that is only visible when I raise my arm. It's about 1 inch in size and has not changed in size over the last 3 months. When I try to feel it, I cannot feel any palpable lump. It is only visible as a bulge when I raise my arm. Is this something I need to be concerned about? I'm 30, female, and not overweight. I lost my health insurance and cannot go to the doctor. Thanks for any replies.
hi! i have a little pea sized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. 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 notpainful, 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.
I found a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> about 6 months ago am now getting it looked into. It is painless, indentation formed at lower edge, about 1 cm, hard and immovable. It has been slowly getting larger over the last six months. I have been on antibiotics for 7 days (875mg 2x day)to rule out an abcess, this has not changed the condition of my lump. I am 26, been on birth control pills for 11 years, smoked for 12, mother had breast cancer at 44, started menstrating at age 11, and over weight.
The other day, after my shirt had been digging in to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>in that same spot myself, the area began to feel a little bit tender. Upon further inspection yesterday, I noticed that it is indeed very tender to the touch, warm, swollen (mostly after I had been fussing with the little lump and the area), and that there is a verysmalllump in the fatty tissue and the area of skin above it is pink and raised.
Allergic reactions seldom present with enlarged lymph nodes unless the allergies are drug induced or is simply associated with an underlying infectious process.
The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> and the groin may suggest that you need to have nearby areas of the body assessed. The enlarged node in the armpit may suggest infections in the chest especially in the areas of the breast and the arms. An enlarged node in the groin requires a complete pelvic examination.
