lump

Avatar f tn Now i stopped taking valtrex and i get a mild pain in armpits after i shave a week ago and had a lump on my right arm almost sure it is lymph node from what im reading in the internet. The lump is 1cm not big at all but it hurts. This was last week thursday, i applied warm water and stopped shaving and took a valtrex and a keflex, the next day the bump went down and the right armpit is so much better.
Avatar f tn An armpit lump can be felt enlarged due to shaving, waxing, using a deodarant and other infectious causes. The throat lumps you mention could be due to some throat infection. You could wait for a few days, and see if the lymph nodees decrease in size. If not, you would need to consult your doctor and you may need to take an antibiotic course. For the pain in the neck region, it would be best to take OTC pain relief medications and apply some local analgesic gel.

Avatar f tn I have a small lump in my armpit and it feels like its bruised.. any ideas what it is??? Its pretty small and tender.
Avatar f tn The first time i found it was months ago and that time it burst and kinda gone but sometimes it would appear again in my armpit (but not on the same spot), sometimes in my left armpit. I've been using ichthyol cream and doesn't seem to make it all gone. as for my breasts, I never felt any pain on my breast or find a lump. should i be worried? thankyou so much.
Avatar n tn I woke up last week with a very painful, golf ball sized lump in my armpit. I went straight to the doctor and he said it isnt a lymph node, and he cut into it to test for staph. the staph test came back negative and he packed it full of gauze for 2 days. When i went back to have the guaze removed, it was still huge and painful, so he sent me to the hospital for an ultrasound.
Avatar f tn HI, I'm a 23 year old female. I have had a small pea-sized lump in my left armpit for... a long time. I really can't remember for how long I've had it now, it could be as much as a year, or as little as 4 months. At first I though it was just an ingrown hair from shaving/waxing and as I do for other bumps of this kind, I've been waiting for a sign of the hair to surface or a 'whitehead' so to speak, to form so that I could clear it out with a needle if it didn't go on it's own.
Avatar n tn If it were an infection, one would suspect the infection would be closer to the arm. A kidney infection would not likely cause a single lump in an armpit. If this lump sticks around, you should have it evaluated by a breast specialist. Depending on your age and risk factors, the doctor may also recommend a mammogram.
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 f tn He fussed at me saying that this is poisonous and I shouldn't have waited so long to come in. It was from the deodorant and I have tried different brands, different kinds and they all have the same effect. I am 40 now and still dealing with this because I can not go without deodorant. I use very little everyday, so the lump doesn't come but every so often now. And the times I don't have to go anywhere I won't use deodorant at all.
550509 tn?1214925164 I woke up this morning and noticed that i have a lump in my armpit...now, i've never had this happen to me, i'm now 24 years old. This is rather startling, i'm not sure if it's caused by stress or what the deal is, but is it this something i need to be concered about?
Avatar f tn I have a painful lump in my armpit..I had an ultrasound that was negative and my PMD is happy with that but I am not. I am still having pain and sometimes it feels like the pain goes down my arm...please ease my mind.
Avatar f tn I have a lump under my armpit, i was told about 6 years ago in the er that it was a assist, and they wanted to cut it out in the er, well i wouldnt do it, because i was afraid, so for years it would come and go, but now its back, and its slightly bigger and sore, so could anyone tell me if assist can turn into cancer?
Avatar f tn The most prevalent cause of a lump in the armpit is infection. An infection can be localized to the armpit itself (perhaps a nick from shaving) or it can be more widespread.. you may also have a boil or abscess just under the skin. If it's a swollen lymph node,this could be caused by an infection somewhere in the body.
Avatar n tn I have a lump in my armpit and I don't really know what it is or where is came from. I went to my doctor and he said that it was just a lump and it would go away in a few days. That was 3 weeks ago. It is still here. I don't know what to do but I hope you people can help me out just a bit. Thanks teen.girl.
925243 tn?1251483645 The other day, after my shirt had been digging in to my armpit in that same spot myself, the area began to feel a little bit tender. Upon further inspection yesterday, I noticed that it is indeed very tender to the touch, warm, swollen (mostly after I had been fussing with the little lump and the area), and that there is a very small lump in the fatty tissue and the area of skin above it is pink and raised.
Avatar n tn i was giving my self an exam and found a small lump under my armpit . this lump feels close to the skin and is very sore to the touch and feels every close to touching the lump nodes that fallow into the breast its about an inch around. Could this be cancer , an ingrown hair from shaving more, or is this just my body not liking this attention that its getting in that area?
Avatar n tn the only way i can discribe it now is it looks like a wart i tried to squeeze it again and doing so the spot/lump looks it is coming away from my skin in one it looks like it is attatch deep inside like roots or some thing and im affraid that if pull to much the whole thing will come out leaving a big hole and bleeding i am quite worried now and have a fear of going to the doctors.any advise would be extremly greatfull.
Avatar f tn It started on the right one and was very painful and kept getting bigger. I don't think it is from shaving. It started spreading from the right side to the left side and now the left armpit hurts like crazy! Today, the right side had little white bumps that i popped and they kind of oozed. The right one also has a lump in it, at least pea sized. The left side feels very hard..but not a lump like the right side has.

Avatar n tn Dear ihatepvcs: A small lump in the armpit could be many things, including an ingrown hair or a tiny reactive lymph node. From the location you describe and your history of normal mammograms, it seems worth watching for a week or so. If it does not go away, you should see a doctor for evaluation. In the meantime, if it gets larger, you should call sooner to schedule an appointment.
1939607 tn?1324292900 I tried using my deodorant less and I abstained from shaving for 4 days. Then, on Friday (3 days ago), I decided to shave them again. The rash wasn't inflammed, it had just left my armpits scaly and dry. I waited for 2-3 hours after shaving before putting deodorant. On Saturday and Sunday (the day before yesterday and yesterday) my armpits (especially the left one) felt rather itchy so I didn't shave, I just put deodorant on.
Avatar f tn hi, about a year ago I noticed a lump in my right armpit, also before I noticed it , I had a clumsy little fall & had a big cut on my ankle & got a abscess near it. I admit I didn't treat the area well. I went to check it out at the doctor ( the armpit boil ) , and he said it was a boil & put me on antibiotics. It didn't really help, I don't think I followed the guidelines right. that one drained soon after.

Avatar m tn Hi, There are many causes for an underarm lump, many of them innocuous. Shaving and antiperspirants can cause cysts and infections. Using a deodorant instead of an antiperspirant can help to prevent an infection in the future.Fatty tissue (lipoma) is another growth that can appear in the axilla area as well as boils and abscesses. Sometimes the lymph nodes can become swollen as a result of a virus, vaccination or bacterial infection.
