Avatar f tn I just wanted to add one more thing.A lump in the armpit could also be a swollen lymph node that appears because on an infection somewhere in the body and you are not to be too concerned about it.Make sure to keep your appointment with your doctor though..Take care.
Avatar m tn I noticed the irregularity in my skin soon afterwards. The lump hasnt increased in size but it wont go away either. Any thoughts??....thanks.
Avatar n tn Was off the antibiotics for approximately 10 days when low and behold, 3 more popped up (1 in the armpit, 1 in the groin and another have mercy was in my privates). Back to the Dr., he said now I have to be on the antibiotic for 30 days and that he felt it was a staph infection. In addition, I've got to put bacitracin in my nose at bedtime for 3 weeks. He advised that staph is a common bacteria that everyone has on their body. It actually lives in the nose.
Avatar m tn My 11 yr old son received 4 shots on Friday afternoon (Td/Tdap, Hep A, Varicella, Meningitis). After a shower 24 hours later he had a painful lump and swelling in his armpit. It is now just over 48 hours after getting the shot and it is not getting any better. I just want to check to see if this allergic reaction or pain and swelling is a common side effect of at least one of these shots. Because of the timing of the soreness my husband and I feel it is related but not sure if it needs a dr.
Avatar n tn Then it finally opened a little and pus started to come out, so it leaked out and i thought it was done but it came back again and swelled again like 2 months later, now, i released most of the pus but now there is a small hole in my armpit and there is a small piece/lump of tissue it looks like that is sticking out of my armpit, approx 1mm in diameter is the hole and I don't know what I should do, will it heal by itself , is the skin going to grow over it? Do i need stitches?

Avatar n tn I am 28 years old. At 25 I discovered a lump in my groin area very similar to a hernia except it only showed up during ovulation, middle of cycle. I have seen many doctors who cannot diagnose it. It is 1 inch above pubic bone, 2 inches away from crease in leg.It shows up on left side only, sometimes back to back months but occasionally skipping a month. Due to the fact that this was unable to be diagnosed I tried to get pregnant.
Avatar m tn I feel it for a day or so before hand and then when i wake I find that the lump has appeared and then the skin becomes very tender. Right now it looks like a pimple like it wants to explode, but if i leave it it will go down again and be gone for a month or so. I once squeezed one months beforehand and after much work, white liquid came out followed by blood. I have also felt something extremely similar occasionally underneath my armpit.
Avatar m tn My wife is an OR-RN and she told me I had developed skin breakdown under my arm and down my lat. We tried to wash my armpit but I had a lump about quarter size and super sore. I went to the doctor b/c I felt achy, but no fever. He put me on Clindimyacin 300mg TID on 2/23/12 along with Clotrimazole topical oint. to treat a secondary bacterial infection stemming from the initial fungal infection on my skin. The lump is down to a nickel size and barely tender.
Avatar f tn Hi Allergic reactions seldom present with enlarged lymph nodes unless the allergies are drug induced or is simply associated with an underlying infectious process. The lump in the armpit 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.
Avatar m tn Hey all. I just noticed this today in the shower. I have a hard lump slightly smaller than a penny, on the very inner thigh groin area. I've never come across anything like this in my life and I am a little freaked out. Its kinda painful, more of an annoyance. I can feel it when i shift my weight or walk. I practice safe sex, and get regular check ups twice a year. Should I go in? or leave it alone for a few days. Is there any cream or anything you guys would suggest to use?
Avatar n tn My mother has had 2 silent heart attacks found by scar tissue and blood clots in right leg so a filter was inserted in groin area. I am concerned about my health now so I saw a doctor yesterday.
1298701 tn?1286990594 recently i notice that i have lump in the right armpit. i had soft tissue looks swallen for couple years but not the hard ones. when i touch inside of my armpit its moveable and its sore. i went to the doctor and they order me biopsy so now i am waiting for my appointment. but today i recently notice pea size lump under my left armpit. and this one is hard. do i have to concern about this more? and prepare for the result of biopsy?
Avatar m tn All caused by the deodorant i used to use. And in the past i remember randomly getting hard marble size painless lumps in my groin area that i would ignore and eventually dissapear without me realizing within a few days. The only sign that i think is good is that at the beginning of the week the lump was HARD MARBLE SIZE and now its more of a HARD PEA SIZE. so it has shrunk which i read is a good sign. But other than that lump there is no other sign of lymphoma.
Avatar m tn I have gotten something similar under my armpit, and I left it alone and it went away.
Avatar m tn My lymph nodes are swollen in neck, armpit and groin all at the same time, they're painless. I'm going insane waiting til tuesday to know if I have HIV. I think I do based on symptoms. I hear lymph nodes swollen = HIV.

Avatar n tn , no pain swallowing, but an irregular feeling like a lump or abrasion) WITH what seemed to be salivary gland pain, two (first tender, then hard) lymph glands in neck, and pain/throb in armpit, groin, and femoral region (no noticed lumps except swollen pain in groin while on Augmentin) and ear pain. I will say that I have chewed tobacco or smoked cigarettes for approx. 14 years.
Avatar n tn Since I have been off the medication for the past 2 weeks, I now have the same enlarged lymph node on the side of my neck which aches constantly. I have had various issues with swollen lymph nodes in the groin and armpit and base of neck. They ache inparticular when I am tired and deal with this more lately. It used to be once or twice a week they would ache, I would nap, and they would feel almost daily.
Avatar m tn Hidradenitis suppurativa is a skin disease that affects areas bearing apocrine sweat glands and hair follicles; such as the underarms, groin and buttocks esp in women. Apply warm compresses on the lumps and keep the area clean. Topical antiseptic treatment and topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment is very useful.
Avatar n tn We have a stong HX of breast cancser in the family, and I was diagnosed with a breast lump approx. 2 years ago thatwas never biopsyed. Please advise at your earliest convenience. Marcia M LangbenR.N.
Avatar n tn Did you ever get strep throat and the lymph glands swelled in your neck? If really bad step can extended to arm pits and groin area too. Very painful, not that cysts aren't. Cysts can be compared to a ingrown hair type feeling. Like if you squeezed it, it might come out. Don't try it, it will bring tears to your eyes and won't come out. It is deeper than a zit and the contents are usually hard. A dr can cut it out. If they go away on their own, I wouldn't let him cut.
Avatar n tn A couple of months ago I noticed a lump under my right armpit, I just assumed it would go away on its own, but now I am experiencing pain and burning in my right groin area along with pain in my right arm and fatigue. I do not have a primary care physician. What can cause this?? I just feel horrible all day everyday... Any advice would greatly be appreciated....
Avatar f tn Back in April of this year I found what I thought felt like a small lump in the armpit area. I went to my GYN doctor and he said he was probably an enlarged lymph node. Anyway, I had a mammo and ultrasound just for my peace of mind. The radiologist that performed the ultrasound said it was "just a lymph node floating aroung and looked completely normal" . My question is that I can still feel the spot, is there any cause for continued concern? The GYN said just do monthly checks.
Avatar n tn One more node was found cancerous. I never had a lump that I could feel in the armpit, but I did have sharp pains down my right arm which started about a year before a normal 3 yrly mammo found the cancer. I have had no pain in that arm since my surgeries, chemo and rads. I don't think you can do anything constructive before you get the results of the biopsy, just try to keep busy and not dwell on the outcome. Hopefully the lump will be benign, as some 80% of lumps are.
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.
