Lump in armpit that itches

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in armpit that itches


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 f tn Now,what's done is done and with all the symptoms you are having,you really need to have this lump and the swelling in your armpit fully evaluated. The lump detected 3 years ago might have been a fibroadenoma,but of course it was not definitely diagnosed as such ,since it wasn't biopsied.The lump could also be an infection or a papilloma , but it needs to be biopsied to find that out.
Avatar n tn Dear sharpurcell: There are lots of things that could cause a small lump in the armpit. However, if this lump has been there longer than a week or if it has gotten larger, you should see a physician for evaluation.
Avatar m tn My husband has a brown spot under the armpit that wasn't there before. I had never notice if there was a birthmark there before. Could it be a tiny birth mark that spread? Should he have it check. It doesn't hurt and there is no lump.
Avatar n tn The pain starts in the upper left part of my chest and radiates to my armpit. Sometimes my skin itches. Today I feel like there is a probem in my left arm, also, like my nerves in the underside of my arm are irritated. I do take birth control pills and have read that they can cause breast pain. Although the pain isn't in my entire left breast, it is in the upper part of it, but more in my chest then in my breast. The pain feels like it is just under the surface of my skin.
9117708 tn?1402092622 I have a small lump under my armpit that itches. It is not a visible lump, but I can feel it when touching my armpit. It comes and goes, well I am sure it does. The itching goes after around 2-3 days and it takes a few months for it to come back, but I never check if the lump goes, which I am now aware that I should. My mum says it is a swollen lymph gland or something along the lines of that, but I'm not completely convinced.
Avatar n tn I have a lump in the right armpit which is quite big from the age of 18.Infact the right armpit looks overall fleshier than left. If I press it it does pain and at times there is discomforting pain in my arm and back. I was scared to go for a check up.I ignored it. Now I am newly married and 25 years and still haveit.It does pain if I press it.Now that I have access to internet I read/hear abour lymphoma and am very very disturbed and immediatly get noticebly pale.
Avatar n tn I am feeling better now but thought to mention that just in case that could make it swell in that area.
Avatar n tn , the lump got larger (almost double) and a slight rash in a ring around the lump appeared, armpit itches occasionally, but not badly (just irratating). thursday brought no change. today, friday, the rash did not spread but it got fatter and more pronounced, itches still and lump is tender to the touch, I can feel the dull pain (like that of a bruise) when my arm is down now. I've read that it could be swollen gland, ingrown hair etc.....
441182 tn?1204777614 For the first time in my 44 years of life, i have developed under my left armpit some bumps that are like raised moles and colored blackish purple. They don't itch and I actually almost got rid of them when I washed my armpit with head and shoulders shampoo. After not paying attention to them for about 3 weeks while I recovered from the flu, they were back and had spread even more under my armpit! Could it be fungus, or cancer or what?

Avatar n tn I noticed a pea sized itchy sore lump just to the upper right of my clitoris last night so went straight to the GU clinic today. The first Dr wasn't too sure so called in the consultant who said it he was pretty sure it was an infected gland. I've been so worried about it, and even after two GU Drs looked at it am still a little worried. Been prescribed anti-biotics so fingers crossed it clears soon.
Avatar f tn Have a red lump roughly the size of a quarter in an oval shape. Its painful and itches. The redness and soreness seem to be traveling. It is located between my elbow and armpit on inner arm. Any suggestions as to what this could be?
Avatar n tn however now i have a 4 month old girl and i just notice that she has a lump that feels like a little ball right in themiddle of her head. it feels hard but it cannot be seen just felt. im worried that it might be a cyst just like the one that my son had however what worries me is that it is in her head and it stresses me out to think that she will need to have it remove.
Avatar n tn About a year ago, I noticed a painful lump under my left armpit. Sometimes the pain is excruciating that radiates through my breast and surrounding areas, and other times it's barely noticeable. Sometimes it itches unbearably (though this may have nothing to do with it). It's about 3 inches or so across and the tissue is very tender to touch. My mother thought it was a swollen lymph node and advised me to wait it out for a few months.
Avatar n tn After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump. I am so glad that I found this site and that you all have had the same problem, being that I don't have any insurance I haven't been to the doctor for this. Now I am wondering how long it will be before the lump is completely gone since the puss has begun. Please help me.
Avatar f tn I am a bit down because he basically said that he didnt advise any surgery. He said that surgery in the armpit is very tricky due to all of the nerves twisting in and around the tissues. he warns me that there is a high possibility of scarring, the area filling up with fluids longterm and a condition where the arms swell up? (somethign to do with lymphod.. ). He said he is not refusing but I should think about this very thoroughly and try to research the success rate of the procedure.

Avatar n tn Her right breast felt swollen, but didn't hurt. No lump. However, her right armpit is extremely tender to the touch and does have a large lump. Blood work came back showing no signs of an infection. In fact, he said her blood count and all that looks great. She still needs to get the details though. Doctors say she has fluid on her lymph nodes and she is going to get a biopsy next week. In the meantime, we cannot figure out what this could be.
Avatar n tn Hi again, I have become worried. I went to the doctor about what I thought was a swollen lymph node on the back of my neck. The doctor told me that although she doesn't think it is something to be REALLY worried about, that my family was right in convincing me to have the "lump" checked. She now wants me to get it examined by an ear, nose and throat doctor. Shed said it's a lump and that it is quite large and I don't have it on the other side of the back of my neck....
Avatar n tn Google it once in a while as No One - in medical profession -takes me seriously. There is nothing in particular at all that instigates it. I'm in general Good health. This must be a Symptom of some venous problem. Let's team up and all write to a reputable medical research hospital.
Avatar n tn I also sleep on my right side with my arm up under my pillow to cradle my neck as i have severe neck arthritis from a car accident 6 or 7 years ago. i don't know if that is a factor in my numbness. i also notice that it goes numb more often on the days i do wear my bra. i would appreciate any advice or if you also have had a numb mid back, any suggestions.
Avatar n tn all i want to say or my advice is to try to use CALAMANSI or PETROLIUM Jelly,,the calamansi or we call here is lemoncito,and i dont know if you have calamansi in your country,that color of that is green,its round some are small and are big,so im still using it and i see my dark skin between legs are getting better..
Avatar f tn I use certain dri prescription strength deodorant and when i put it on it burns and itches. Could it have somehow gotten in through the pores in my armpit and be whats causing the pain? I feel no lumps in my breast but it is extremely tender. Thank you!
Avatar n tn Why, do I twitch when I wake up, my body is fatigue after having 8 hours of sleep. Body itches, butt itches, thigh itches, comes and go. Sharp pain in finger, and below foot. Sharp pain in the back, ear pain, stiff neck. Why now ? Why after my hand job ? why not before ? Do you see where I am getting at now ??? Is it all in the head, no. Sure stress can cause some problem, but not low immune system symptoms.
Avatar f tn This problem could be caused by a variety of things,like for example changes in hormones levels,allergic reaction, eczema, fungal infection etc... The lump in your axilla area could be a swollen lymph node that is usually caused by an infection or inflammation somewhere in the body. It could also be a sebaceous cyst or an infection of the hair follicle that may be caused by shaving or use of antiperspirants.
Avatar f tn I am a 29 yr old female and have a lump in my right breast as well as a growth in my right armpit, just recently I started noticing that my right breast itches all of the time. About 3 yrs ago I had a fna and it returned that were atypical cells found in the lump. I didn't have insurance at the time and never did anything about it. I now have good insurance and am scheduled to go through a mammogram and ultrasound in a week from now. The waiting is torture.
Avatar n tn Is there anything else you can tell me about breast tissue being in my armpit, because it does ache the way my breast does with the fibrocystic changes.
17913312 tn?1461339208 looks weird coloring (paler than rest of skin a bit, and veiny.) Ultrasound showed suspicious lump in same area as previously tested this time they were looking at swollen lymph nodes...sent me for redo ultrasound with the radiologist...after reviewing said everything looks NORMAL, see you in a year for your annual. Ummm how is this NORMAL?? My lymph nodes under left arm are clearly swollen, (never experienced this before) still have the itchy left breast area.
Avatar f tn I'm a 23 year old small female and shave regularly (sporadically as of late.) I have a red lump under my right armpit. It started about the size that it is now, about 1" wide, and pretty flat. At its worst, red as an infected zit, it grew to about 2" in diameter and about 1/4-1/2" raised from my skin. It has never been very painful. I talked to the pharmacist about it shortly after it started and she told me to use Gold Bond cream.
