Avatar f tn I cannot assure it is something related to breast cancer. My mom had it too and removed it. Breast cancer runs in my family. When I touch it, around it there's nothing but right in the middle I can feel a bean-size lump. I notice that there was some pain but i didn't realize it until just a few days ago. I read also it is something related to pregnancy which I am not. Any answers will be appreciated..
Avatar f tn Just a day ago I got a very painful lump in my underarm. It's not a pimple and it's very sore to the touch. I've had lymph nodes in my neck before but was told they were nothing to worry about. I don't know what to do as I'm on vacation in a foreign country...

Avatar m tn About a month ago while shaving my armpit, I noticed a very small (less pea size) lump right in the center of my armpit. I know that when I or my doctor examines my armpit for lymph nodes my arm is relaxed and lowered near my side and the area being examined in deeper in the armpit. This lump is at or very near the surface, maybe even in the skin, and can be felt when I gently run my finger over the skin of my armpit with my arm is raised and the armpit skin it taut.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 35 years old and recently noticed a nodular-type lump in my my right armpit area. It is somewhat painful to touch and also in the area surrounding it. It has not changed in size over the past 3 days, nor have I found any other nodules/lumps in the general area. I have not been sick lately, nor on any medications. Could this be a serious problem, and would you recommend that I see my general practioner or an OBGYN? Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn I had the mammogram and the tech asked if I had any symptoms and I told her about the lump in my armpit. She said she would try to get it in the mammogram. After the radiologist read my mammogram he asked that I come back for another mammogram and ultrasound to look a little close at my left breast. While I was with the ultra sound tech I told her about the lump in my left armpit.
Avatar n tn Hi! A lump in armpit can be a swollen lymphnode, in response to fungal infection or sweat dermatitis or infection of hair follicles. 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. Lipoma is also a possibility. Consult your PCP for an evaluation. A CT scan can be confirmatory or a fine needle biopsy.

Avatar m tn My sister had a lump in her armpit too. She went to the doctor and they had to take a sample of the fluid in the lump to make sure it was not cancerous.

Avatar m tn I recently discovered when i raise my right arm, there is a 'lump'. However, i cannot tell whether it is normal as in a muscle or bone from my shoulder area or indeed a lump. I can see it when i raise my arm straight up, and it is kinda in the area where the arm meets the center of the armpit. It is rather large, around a golf ball size. On my left arm there is a very similar 'lump' but just a slight bit smaller.
Avatar n tn 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?
