Lump under both armpits

Common Questions and Answers about Lump under both armpits


Avatar f tn Hi, Yesterday I woke up with pain under both of my armpits. I started rubbing the areas and discovered a smaller than a pea-sized lump near both of my armpits. It hurts like a bruise but the area around the lumps is slightly red and painful. I just want to know what are probable causes and what the chance of them being cancer is. I'm worried and would greatly appreciate any info I can get. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have a penny sized lump under both armpits. They are very tender. I do not have insurance right now and I am trying to figure out what to do. They hurt just to have my arm in a resting position. I did have a full hysterectomy due to cervical cancer in 2005. I dont have the money to pay to go to a Dr just for them to say its a hair bump. Suggestions on how to tell the difference?
Avatar n tn I have two small lumps under both my armpits. I do shave but I haven't recently I'm not sure what caused this I have started taking a hair, nail and skin vitamin.
Avatar f tn Well I know that when I had mastitis my under arms hurt and I had a lump which was the clogged milk ducts. It hurt to lift my arms and to touch!
Avatar f tn I'm 28 years old and had recently had 2 cyst's in my right breast drained one was about 4 months ago and the other one was drained just 2 days ago. I had an ultra sound done for the second time and found that I had 7cyst in my right breast. Some big and some little. I was having alot of pain in my breast and in my right arm. The day before I meet with my doctor I discovered a lump under my right arm pit and it was very painful I would say it is the size of a pea.
Avatar f tn These began first as an itch in my left armpit and then bumps formed, then in my right armpit the same process. From both armpits a clear and odorless liquid seemed to almost pour out of my armpits, especially when they were particularly itchy. I let the itchy-ness continue for two or three weeks, hoping that it would just go away before I finally decided I needed to go to the doctors three days ago. My doctor took one look at it and told me I had an allergic reaction to something.
Avatar n tn But, yesterday morning I found out this two bumps under my right armpits only exactly at 14 weeks after exposure. I was freaked. I went to doctor today and he told me that one is pimple and other is staph (something in that nature), he told me that people are getting it everywhere, it's a skin disease. I asked him whether it's lymph node and he said it's not. He said that lymph node would be pea sized, the staph lump was bean sized.
Avatar n tn My husband has bumps under his armpits on both sides that come and go. He stopped using deoderant a few months ago but they are still coming back. These bumps are the size of lima beans and sometimes they are red, if we squeeze them nothing comes out, they just get bigger and more painful. We would go to the doctor but our insurance does not kick in for another 6 months. One of our friends told us it was cancer, he is pretty upset now. Any suggestions...
Avatar n tn This would happen on and off to both armpits. Couldn't even put my arm to my side. After several times, they put me on a preventative antibiotic which stopped it altogether. The weird thing is that they sent a culture in and it stemmed from my pancreas I believe. not to scare you :0 I'm fine now..
Avatar f tn I have pain in both armpits, started in one with a lump. The lumps come and go, and the doctor found it once. And like most of you, he said it wasn't anything because they couldn't see it on the MRI. ONE THING TO THINK mom died of breast/bone cancer two years ago, and she had an obvious lump (like we all seem to) and she got an MRI. They didn't see anything. So she got an ultrasound, since the lump was obvious. She had a masectomy a week later, and died two years ago.
Avatar n tn Could you tell me what other symptoms you experienced them and how quickly they came on and how long they lasted?
Avatar n tn about a year ago I noticed this painful lump under my armpits. it eventually grew to several smaller lumps surrounding one large oblong lump which was pinkish, feverish and very painful. i went to a surgeon and he suggested that it be gashed at once. they gashed the lumps while i was awake but it wasnt painful because of the anasthetics. however about one week after the lumps had completely healed it recurred. i stopped using deoderant and used amen's medicated powder instead.
1939607 tn?1324292900 It stang and the following day I woke up with a sore and itchy rash under both armpits. I could see that my shaving had also caused two tiny cuts under my left underarm. 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.
Avatar n tn The other morning I woke up and my right arm hurt,feeling under my arm I felt a lump, it felt like maybe a spider bite so I wasn't too worried. It isn't red and it is not swollen. I does have some dull pain to it and hurts when I press on it. It is located ubder my right arm around the mid-bicep area.Today I felt another one just above the elbow area on the same arm. Is this anything I should be concerned with or could this just be fatt deposits or could it be a sign of cancer of some sort?
Avatar f tn My boyfriend is a 25 year old male, and about 2 weeks ago he experienced hard and VERY painful lumps under both of his armpits that disappeared within about a week's time. The skin over the lumps was a bit reddish, but no rashes/ discharge/ chafing. Now he has similar symptoms, but under his right nipple. It is a small, hard, and also painful lump, which is accompanied with purplish-blue-ish discoloration.
Avatar n tn I have a hard, pea sized lump under the skin in my pubic area (less than 1/2 inch above clitoris and slightly to the left). It's not visible at all and can only be felt by touch - I first noticed it about 1 1/2 months ago. Went to my obgyn and she quickly told me it seems like an ingrown hair and I should put warm compresses on it. She even said it looked like a white head was coming up. Well, the compresses didn't work.
Avatar n tn Now, the discoloration is on my left areola too (just beginning on the outside of left breast around nipple on areola). I also have swollen glands in my neck and under both arms in my armpits. Could my symptoms be a deep abscess? I have no pain, and no redness. The ultrasound also found about four lumps in my other side (left) too. Could this be infection spreading? I just want to know if it possibly sounds like those possiblitlites according to my symptoms/signs.
Avatar m tn the test was clean, but because of th location of the lump i doubt that it was scanned. My wifes parents have both passed from cancer one from lung and the other from pancreas. The lump has been there for about three weeks and has recently become painfull the sensation that she has described is a burning when she lifts her arm. the lump is about 2/3 the size of a spungy golf ball with a firm center and recently sensitive to the touch.
Avatar m tn A few days later my child who used deoderant behind me complained of the same problem but it was a bump under the childs arm that felt like a small knot and arm was hurting also. The bump under my arm looked like a herpes blister in which I am still trying to figure out how it could have gotten there. Both of our blisters or bumps are gone,mine left a peeling of skin where the blister was and the childs left nothing.
907672 tn?1381029323 When I wake in the morning they really hurt and I think I can feel my lymph nodes under my armpits. It almost feels like when I was pregnant or about to start my menstrual cycle. I'm pretty certain pregancy isn't the issue since my husband has had a vasectomy. My periods have been irregular lately, my last one came only two weeks after the previous one.
Avatar n tn I have swelling under my arm pits for a long time now..there are no lumps and the swelling on both sides are exaclty the same..lately there has been a rash showing up but seems like it goes away but comes back again...i dont want to go to the doctor cause i have no health insurance..i hope someone can help im sick of the swelling!
Avatar f tn I know the ones near/in her groin did, neck, armpits, under the jaw, probably the ones behind her knees. Since you're experiencing tingling, I would really suggest going tomorrow. It could be they are swollen (or the cysts or whatever they are) enough to pinch a nerve just enough to start a reaction from it. Best wishes!
Avatar n tn For the past 3-4 weeks I have been experiencing painful lump/bumps in both of my armpits, with each bump lasting about 3-4 days before it disappears. They are painful, and I can usually feel the pain before I notice a bump. They are about the size of a pea. Both armpits are affected, and I am normally getting 1-2 at a time - sometimes on one armpit, sometimes on both simultaneously. They do not necessarily come back in the same spot on my armpits either.
