Lump in armpit with fever

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in armpit with fever


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.
Dear chrissy66: A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> could be many different things. It could be a simple as an ingrown hair that has become inflamed. You do not mention your age or risk factors for breast cancer, so I will assume average risk. If the lump becomes hard, or does not begin to go away in the next several days, you should see your doctor.
At about 6 p.m. today I noticed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. It is about the size of a penny and when I try to squeeze the lump it is slightly malleable (it stays a bit deformed and dented before slowly resuming its original shape). It is tender to touch. I am 15 and my mother says that it is probably and ingrown hair or pimple and that in a few days she will help me pop it, but I am worried.

I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.

Have also had severe pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right breast - also undiagnosed. Mammogram was clear but did show <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> skin tissue. Should more tests be done? Would be interested to hear of diagnosis of others with such symptoms.
If you press deeply, you can feel a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> about the size and shape of a jelly bean <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the center of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. It feels like a lymph node that is swollen. I can find the same spot in the opposite armpit, and the lymph node is normal size on the other arm. He has no infection, no fever, no sore throat. Also of interest he just got back from a trip to Europe. He does not have medical insurance since he just finished high school and is leaving for the Marine Corps in 8 weeks.
I have had this lump under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> for 6 months now and i dont think it has got an bigger <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> size.

Ive had what feels like the same thing behind my ear for 5 years. If i had lymphoma would i have noticed at this stage? I have no other symptoms and feel fine.

there are a lot of lymph nodes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> and they could be swollen with certain infections like cat scratch fever for instance which my girlfriend had last summer at age 19. anyways if you're super super anxious you could insist that your GP biopsy it, and they might humor you although doctors really hate being told how to do their job (and for good reason.

As I was feeling it yesterday, I felt a hard small lump right where the breast ends on the left side but higher along side of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>..not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> but along side it.It feels like a pea hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> is just directly underneath the skin and it's itchy sore. I am pmsing and going to start my period some time this coming week and my breasts get sore and lumpy with my period and after my period they go away.
3 weeks ago I became aware of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>, but only because of discomfort, not what I would call real pain (although I have a very high pain threshold). I went to a walk-in centre and saw a nurse on the that Thursday evening and managed to get an appointment at my GP surgery the following Tuesday. At the walk-in centre the diagnosis was a blocked sweat-gland, but the GP diagnosed a swelling in a lymph gland. The GP also checked for lumps in the breast and found nothing.
I had a friend who developed cat scratch fever and had a large <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. Pretty impressive but it did take awhile to clear up. Perhaps there's something odd going on with your lymphatic system too. But it would take a doctor to figure that out. Hope you get answers soon.
Hello everyone, a few weeks ago my son started out with a high fever and complaining of back pain. We thought maybe something kidney or urinary related as he was urinating as often..of course we know this could be because of the fever. We saw his doctor and he ordered a CBC and flu culture. The first CBC two weeks ago came back with elevated WBC, and the doc gave him a shot of Rocephin and put him on Zythromax. After the meds, he seemed to be doing better, the fever was down.
) Have you checked to see if you are running a fever? If any of these are present, you should get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> touch with your primary care physician. I am sorry for the anxiety and worry you are dealing with...
I found a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> under my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> tonight and am very worried. It hurts when you touch it and when I move my arm or just put my arm at my side. It is the same color as my skin with a pale pink center. There is a hair in the center (can't pluck it, it's not long enough, it's right at the surface) and I am not shaving it right now, too afraid it will get worse. I did try to squeeze it and that really hurt and made it slightly bigger.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> can be a swollen lymphnode, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 and this can get infected. Consult your PCP for an evaluation. A CT scan can be confirmatory or a fine needle biopsy.
I woke up about a week ago with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> and swelling with pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my arm pit. More so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the lft, but pain is in both sides. when I do a self breast exam I do not feel anything in the breast. It is not red in the area. It feels like a squishy mass or tennis ball. I do not have a fever. I am over weight and just thought it was a lump of fat. If it is fat, will it be painful? I really really really do not like going to a doctor. But I will if I have to. What do you think?
about 3 nights ago, I awakened with a painful sensation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left axillary region. My shirt was pulled tight there, so I thought it was trauma to a lymph node. I could feel a pea- sized lump. Since then it has grown to about 2 cm by 1 cm. , and 1 cm in height. It is red and very tender. It is hard to the touch. I have no fever, and no obvious infections on my arm, hand, or chest. I placed topical cortisone oinment and antibiotic cream. Any ideas for differential diagnosis?
