lump

A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> that comes and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es is almost certainly not cancer. It's not rare to have recurring infections in sweat glands under the arm, It might need surgical drainage to make it go away permanently. Also, using deodorants that don't have antiperspirants, which plug up the glands, can be useful. But to have it accurately diagnosed, it'll need to be looked again by your doctor.Best wishes..
I woke up this morning and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> was swollen and i have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> there. This has happened before and i always <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. It is sore. I am really scared and i am unsure of what to do. I work a demanding job as a police officer and it is impossible to get into a dr for a few days. It hurts into the right side of my neck. That is the same arm that is swollen.
I sometimes get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>, but it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span> after a few days and then it could be months until I have another one.It is in the upper part of my armpit and sometimes the area will even be red around the area. I do feel some soreness around the area sometimes, but not all the time. I've read that sometimes a lump in the armpit can have something to do with breast cancer. I was never too concerned about it until a friend of mine found a lump in her breast and I read up on breast cancer.
Don't lymph nodes swell because of infection like the glands at the back of your throat when you get sick. But that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. This never <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>, is always there and has been for a long time. my ultrasound is this coming thursday. When I called to make the appt. the girl said she was going to book me for a mammo after the ultra sound just incase they feel they need to do one. Any advice would be great.
I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. I've had it before and it comes and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es. the first time i had it the Dr said it was probably due to stress and my immune system or that my sugar level was too high. It comes and goes and is sometimes painful but not always. I have just had a kidney infection and I was wondering if this could be the route of the problem. I've been run down for a while and this may also be the cause. i just need reassurance.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> can be a swollen lymphnode, in response to fungal infection or sweat dermatitis or infection of hair follicles. It can also be folliculitis or a hair follicle infection. It can also be an enlarged lymphnode due to malignancy of breast (rare in males but not impossible). At times it is a cyst too. Consult your PCP for an evaluation. A CT scan can be confirmatory or a fine needle biopsy. Hope this helps.
It does hurt when I touch it and for a little while afterwards, but then pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>, at times it can be alittle itchy. I've looked in a minor and don't see really anything out of the ordinary, such as a sore. I know that it can be many thing, cyst, in grown hair, even a sign of breast cancer. I've never had an in grown hair so I'm not sure if there would be obvious signs of that.
A few years ago I took him to the doctors and they said there was nothing wrong that it was a swallon lymph node.. they said that it will go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>, well it didn't I kinda didn't think anything of it until the other day when he took a shower he came out and lifted his arm to scratch his back. I saw the lump and he said it has always been there and that it doe's not hurt at all. I make an appointment but wont be seen until next week. Any idea's what it could be?
One is that this could be an infected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> gland that presents with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. This can resolve spontaneously but more often would require antibiotic treatment. Another is that related to breast tissue (as there is an axillary extension of the breast tissues). the most common pathology that can explain this is that of benign breast changes such as fibrocystic disease which would usually respond with the hormonal changes in the body.
As I was taking a shower yesterday I noticed that I had a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. At first I thought I had a pimple or and infection but it didnt have a white tip and the lump seems to be under my skin. Should i immediately make an appointment to see a doctor? It's beginning to hurt. I was doing some research and it seems to be obe of the earliest symptoms of breast cancer. Is it possible to have cancer at age 23?

ITS ONLY ONE SIDE, RIGHT SIDE, under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. WHEN I DONT USE ANYTHING IT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>ES <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span> FOR A SHORT TIME, theN IN A DIFFERENT SPOT 2 OR 3 MORE POP BACK UP. ITS ON goING FOR 1 MONTH AND IT CAN HURT REALLY BAD DEPENDING ON the AREA AFFECTED, DUE TO PRESSURE.

I get soreness just in the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> that comes and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es during my period.

I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> 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.
Dear JanRose, Without physical examination, ability ask questions etc. it is difficult to advise you as to what this pain could be. It is best to discuss with your doctor, who can evaluate.

Hello, i am 45 year old female, otherwise in good health, 2 months ago i noticed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> about 1 inch in diameter, no pain just rather large, it cannot be seen by lifting my arm ( area is not raised ) , it seems to be very deep. no redness either and wasn't, (or the area around it) , tender at all.
) Take care :)
answer on this list you need to post a new question. Sometimes it's tough to get in but keep trying especially early in the day. That being said, this does sound like something worth checking into further, if for no other reason than your peace of mind. A physical exam would be needed to give you any real idea of what's going on.

got blood drawn and he said to come back in two weeks after thanksgiving.When I returned he examed the lymphnoid in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> and said it felt more defined and larger, I thought it felt a bit smaller and had noticed less pain.He went over blood test results and said I was neg for mono and my white blood was alittle elevated (possibly due to small area on hand or cold poss?
I am female and 25. A month ago I felt a painful bump in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. I have moderate acne and often get razor bump acne in my armpit so I did not think much of the bump at first. Since then I have had 5 more and it seems like the bump is moving! Maybe I am just paranoid and it is different ones coming up, but it really seems like as soon as one goes down another one is there 3mm away. Always the same pea sized bump just traveling in my armpit.
It last for about a few seconds or so and it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. the pain comes and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es and if I apply pressure to it the pain is not that bad.I'm a 47 yr.old male who works out twice a month and eats healthy and I weigh 225 at 6 3' . What can this be ?
I have a painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> that comes and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span>es randomly (at least it seems to me). Its not a boil but rather it feels like there is something lodged under the skin around the lump. It always comes abruptly not gradually and when I apply pressure brownish matter (its not as fluid as puss, and is no where as pungent) comes out, followed by blood. Usually after I have relieved the lump the pain is gone within minutes and it disappears within a couple of days.
