Avatar n tn Today my son (12 years old) found a small lump under his left nipple. He has been ill with a cough and sore throat (caught from me) since the 26th of January. Is this anything to do with breast cancer and should i take him to see a doctor? If not what is the cause and will it die away? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I found a hard lump under my left breast. I am going to the dr on Monday, but I am truly freaking out. What could this be? There's not one on the right side. It also is painful, mostly when you touch it though. I only noticed it because it was painful without touching. So i dont know???? There isnt a history in my family that I'm aware of, my mother passed in her 30's from heart disease. Please let me know what you think.
Avatar f tn I felt a lump under my left arm approximately 2 weeks ago. I cannot feel any lumps on my left breast, but it has become achy and numb in that area and it travels down my arm. I've had no fever, but I have felt run down lately. I have read that lymph nodes can become swollen fighting infection. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow - should I be worried??

Avatar n tn Last month i noticed a painful lump under my left arm pit, I didn't take much notice. The pain went away and the lump got smaller. Now 3 weeks later the pain is back.

Avatar f tn Yesterday I noticed that I had a bean size lump under my left armpit; that area had been a little sore for the past week before I noticed the lump; I also started my period 1 day after the lump appeared. Should I be concerned and get an appointment with my gyn asap? Or should I just wait a week and see if it leaves on it’s own? Could this be a sign of breast cancer or is my body trying to tell me I’m risk for it ? I’m really scared, and hope it’s nothing serious .
Avatar f tn Hi from the history of follicle manipulation (the shaving), this is most likely a localized infection of the glands around the hari follicles. this is really a common occurrence and this would usually resolve. However, there might be a residual lump due to fibrosis of the previously infected tissues. It is best to have this evaluated by your doctor since if there is still residual infection, this might have to be treated with antibiotics.
Avatar n tn A pea-sized lump appeared under my left arm, just above the arm pit, about 2 months ago. The lump is now about the size of a walnut. The skin looks discolored - a pinkish-purple color like a small bruise. When I press on the lump it is somehat hard, and hurts when I push on it. I haven't noticed any changes in my breasts. Should I be worried that this is a breat cancer warning? Your response will be very greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have had a mid-size lump under my left arm since Dec. 2001. I had a mammogram done in January that came back good. The lump is still present, so I made another appointment to have the lump checked out. I have occasional throbbing pain in the area under my arm, and in the last few days my left arm has also been hurting. Any advise? Does this sound like some type of cancer?

Avatar n tn Hi. My son recently found a hard lump directly under his left nipple. He is 13. The lump is very small, only 1 cm x 1cm and it is not painful. Also, his left and right nipples seem to be inverted a lot. They are not always inverted, and this happens moreso on the left. Should he go to the doctor for this? Thanks.
