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 f tn hello. my boyfriend discovered a painful lump in his armpit last night that has me deeply concerned. he is 23 years old and has not been sick or ill for the past few months. the lump is solid but moveable; and approximately the size of a penny. also there is quite a bit of drainage. he wants me to help him drain it (which i don't mind) but i'm anxious to do so. i don't want to make it worse, or spread the infection.

Avatar f tn I woke this morning with a painful lump under my right arm. I only realized there was a lump because It felt as if my bra was too tight or something. I have had swollen glands on both sides of my throat the past few days on and off. Pain in the back of the head/cervical area over about a weeks period of time with severe pain. Do I need to be concerned, should I seek medical treatment or wait a few days, weeks? How do you know if it is serious or not?
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?
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 m tn Hello, My wife has detected a lump below the skin in the armpit. She is 40 and has a mamogram 2 months ago. 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.
Avatar m tn Hello, for a few weeks i have developed a pea size lump on my right armpit. it is not right under the armpit but it is right beside the area. it is noticeable but not painful, also it is not reddened but just the same as my skin colour. im in good health i believe and only fourteen at the moment, i'm not sure what to do, do you have an idea of what this lump may be and what should i do about it. Thank you.
Avatar f tn what could be the reason for an armpit lump at the age 14... sometimes it is a little painful i have consulted some doctors and they have given antibiotics for it.. is there something serious??
Avatar n tn Hello, Doctor-- Within the past four weeks, I have engaged in protected sex with two women who have numerous sexual partners (escorts). I'm not writing to discuss the relative risk involved, but I have been worried about a lump under my right armpit that I found today. I found it accidentally when showering. I wanted to ask about "armpit lymph node swelling.
Avatar n tn Also, a sudden painful lump in the armpit is more likely to be infection or some other type of inflammation. You do not state what type of x-ray is ordered. X-ray is useful for identifying some problems but not all. You may want to discuss the type of x-ray with your doctor to find out what he is looking for. If, in your doctor’s opinion, this is most likely infection, it may be reasonable to “watch” it for a week or so to see if it improves.

Avatar n tn Yesterday I noticed a small lump under my left armpit, lower down though where I can feel it when my arm is down if I check for it so it is not directly under my armpit. I noticed it when I had an itch. I checked the right side and again I have a lump in the same exact spot, mirror images of eachother. I do not have any clue how long these lumps have been there. Whenever I checked for lumps I only did it right in my breasts, not near the armpits.
Avatar n tn Hi! I have a few questions regarding a pretty large lump in my armpit. It has been there for about 3 mos.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! 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 folliculitis or a hair follicle infection. 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. Consult your PCP for an evaluation. A CT scan can be confirmatory or a fine needle biopsy. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Hi, Can someone help me please. The other day I found a small lump under my right armpit. It is the size of a pea or smaller, feels smooth and moves around (sort of springs back and forth). Went to see Dr who said it was nothing that jumped out at her, but to come back in a couple of weeks to check again (I do have me period currently). I have kept feeling it and its still there and freaking me out quite a bit. Could someone tell me what it might be.
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 I have a lump in my armpit and a couple of months ago went to the doctor. I had to have a mammogram and ultrasound. The results came back clear. I still don't know what's causing the swollen lymph gland and am considering another vist to the doctor. The doctor said when he first felt the lump it didn't feel hard enough to be cancerous.
Avatar n tn I have a lump in my breast that has been examined through x-rays on two occassions. On both occassions I was told that it was nothing to worry about but now I get sharp shooting pains where the lump is and I have noticed that it has moved closer to my armpit area. Is there anything that I should worry about? Thank you!
Avatar n tn I have found a lump under my right breast very near the armpit area. I am a breast (left) cancer survivor and I currently taking Evista. I had an ultrasound just last summer and it did show that I had cysts in this breast however, I have never had any pain until recently (the last 3 1/2 weeks). I can definitely feel the lump and it is tender to the touch when I lay on that side for some length on time, such as sleeping or if I accidently bump it.
Avatar n tn I have several painful lumps in my armpit, that almost feel swollen. I have recently had a middle ear infection and have been taking 875mg amoxicillin. It started out with one small one, and spread to a lot of my armpit.. they almost seem to connect at points. They are under the skin, and have been there for 2 1/2 days. What's going on with my armpit?
