Avatar_m_tn I'm a 16 year old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>male</span>, and i've had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> for about a month now, and i was wondering if anyone could give me any insight as to what it is. It isn't very big, it doesn't hurt, although it can get a bit tender if i mess with it, it's pretty hard, and seems to be under the skin. I read somewhere that using an antiperspirant can cause bumps like this, and i use Mitchum Unscented roll on. Does anyone know if this has any type of connection?
Avatar_m_tn Im a 16 years old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>male</span>. I noticed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> around 2 months ago, the colour is kind of red. at first it was painful but then it got small and the pain died off. even though the lump got smaller ,it is still there and its not visible anymore, I can still feel it under my skin. i cant move it around and it is stuck to my skin.
Avatar_n_tn I found a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. It's beneath the skin. It's rigid. It's about the size of a pea and painful. I also have a lump in the top of my arm which has been there for many months. That lump is a bit small and feels like it's lodged deeper into the skin. It does not hurt. Do I have reason for concern?
Avatar_m_tn Im male, 29, im 6' with 205lbs I played baseball professionally from 18 to 21 and since the last year of my career im seeing this ball <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. I've never worried, i thought this could be a muscle over developed due the sport i practiced, but now i have a toughener and i fell worry about myself. No cancer or diabetes history in my family.

Avatar_n_tn Are you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>male</span> or female (Im not going to your links) a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> could be 1. a cyst, a boil an ingrown hair, an enlarged lymph node or a tumor Most likely at your age one of the first 3 .
Avatar_n_tn at the end of the 2nd day, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the skin of my armp no longer hurts. Now, I just feel a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. 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.
Avatar_n_tn My son has a dime sized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> (disc shaped) right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> his left nipple. He is 12 yoa (he will be 13 in September) I am concerned and wondered if you had any imput? A few notes...His voice is already changing, he's developed muscles and he has armpit hair and the starting of facial hair. He is also asthmatic and has been since he was a baby.
Avatar_m_tn 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 and this can get infected. Consult your PCP for an evaluation. A CT scan can be confirmatory or a fine needle biopsy.
Avatar_n_tn I am 34 and have an extremely painful large protruding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. I have never had anything like this every before. It is growing rapidly and now changing to a pinkish tone. I went to a doctor and he said it is an infected gland and put me on some antibiotics. He said it should work. It isn't. I work at a job where I am irritating it constanly. It seems to grow more then. Should I get it drained or wait for it to burst on its own? I am worried about the pain of the draining.
Avatar_n_tn ok, so now today the lymph node <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my R arm has swollen and become pretty painful, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> near my nipple has also become more pronounced....i have dr appointment tomorrow but i was just wondering what you might think is going on...or at least give me a few scenarios- i am already worried so dont worry about replying with any kind of speculation...lol what would cause my lymph nodes to swell in different places and so big? this has never happened before....
Avatar_n_tn I was in the shower today and I noticed a small beebee sized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the skin in my lower left chest area near the armpit. I don't recall if I've ever felt it before. Should I have this checked out? It's not painful at all. Thanks!
Avatar_n_tn Dear inh: Most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>male</span> breast cancer presents as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in the breast area. lumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the arm could be related to many things, including an ingrown hair or infection. However, if this is new, it would not hurt to have it evaluated by a physician.
Avatar_n_tn hi im a 16 year old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>male</span>, recently found a small hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> which i can move around quite easily, it is not causing any pain at all was just wondering if anyone knew what it may be??
Avatar_n_tn ) Also, 2 days after I had sex with her, I discovered little pimple like item <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>, and one on the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>. (It looks somewhat like the sore you get on your neck when you are wearing necklace, it is pink and a small head) An then everyday I discover a new one under my armpit. Now, 2 in a smaller size also show up on my face and one on my arm, and they look more like a misqussto bite. Also, I discover 3 small one around my pubic hair area.
Avatar_n_tn Yes, it is possible it could be breast cancer. It could also be related to something else entirely. The swelling may have indicated an allergy to the deodorant, but the lump ... there is only one. Maybe a cyst, an ingrown hair, an injury to that breast. I don't know. Swollen lymph glands point to something else. Maybe its related to puberty?? It wouldn't hurt to get this checked out by your doctor.
Avatar_m_tn I am a 37 year old male. I have just noticed a 1/4" by 1/4 lump just under my right pectoral on the right of center near armpit. There is no discoloration of skin. The lump is maybe 1/4 deep. It seems to stay attached to tissue. There is no pain when I pinch or touch it. Any ideas what this could be?
Avatar_f_tn Hello, This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span> can be due to boil caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle. Apply warm compresses and keep the area clean. Drainage is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head.
Avatar_n_tn You don't state your age,but hormonal changes in teenagers may result in the feeling of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the areolar in one or both breasts (gynecomastia). This can occur in both teenagers and young men too and it's expected to resolve in a few months in the majority of males. Depending on your age, cancer is highly unlikely, male breast cancer is extremely rare until later middle age at the earliest.
Avatar_m_tn As you still have the swellings under your armpits and this "lump" in the crease of your inner thigh, don't forget to mention this to the doctor/urologist and ask if you can have a blood test taken for rule out non-Holdgkins lymphoma. Thanks for the update on how you are getting on, and I am glad to know that you are much better and that you will be seeing your urologist with regard to issues that have not settled down yet.
Avatar_m_tn Just got off crutches and found a hard, movable, completely painless <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> about the size of a pea in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>armpit</span>, it feels like it's about a 1/4in deep along the tendon of my pectoral muscle, but I can easily move it. What could it be? If it was a lymph node wouldn't it be non-moveable and hurt?
