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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> right an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpitan> that I found today. I found it accidentally when showering. I wanted to ask about "an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpitan> lymph node swelling.
Dear chrissy66: a lump in the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 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 lump in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> 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 know for sure I saw it a month ago, but went through 2 surgeries (unrelated?) and that was an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> 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.

Have also had severe pain and lump in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> right breast - also undiagnosed. Mammogram was clear but did show lump in 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feelan> a lump about the size and shape of a jelly bean in the center of his <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>.

3 weeks ago I became aware of lump in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> left <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> 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 lump in his <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> son started out with a high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> 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.

I found a lump under an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> left <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> tonight and am very worried. It hurts when you touch it and when I move an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> arm or just put an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> arm at an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> side. It is the same color as an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> 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 lump in <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 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 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 lump and swelling with pain in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> arm pit. More so in the lft, but pain is in both sides. When I do a self breast exam I do not an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feelan> anything in the breast. It is not red in the area. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feelan>s 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 in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> left axillary region. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> shirt was pulled tight there, so I thought it was trauma to a lymph node. I could an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feelan> 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> arm, hand, or chest. I placed topical cortisone oinment and antibiotic cream. any ideas for differential diagnosis?
