Avatar f tn today however, i have found a painfull pea sized lump in my left armpit. i am quite concerned because it does not seem to be a stuck hair or gland, it seems to be deeper in, closer to the main tendon in the armpit. it is also quite painfull when touched. what should i do? does this sound like a malignant lump?
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 Got blood drawn and he said to come back in two weeks after thanksgiving.When I returned he examed the lymphnoid in the armpit and said it felt more defined and larger, I thought it felt a bit smaller and had noticed less pain.He went over blood test results and said I was neg for mono and my white blood was alittle elevated (possibly due to small area on hand or cold poss?

Sometime shormonal changes in a normal menstrual cycle will cause these lumps which should settle down as your cycle evolves. A lipoma is a benign tumor composed of fatty tissue. These are the most common form of soft tissue tumor.
Avatar m tn hi! i have a little pea sized lump in my armpit. for about a months or 2, can't remember exactly. it is close to where the arm joines the chest but in the armpit. it is not painful, maybe when i touch it too much it becomes sensitive. i am 19 weeks pregnant as well. went to gp who felt it and said it is probably cyst asked me to come back in 1 month if it grows bigger. but i am still worried, could it be cancer? it is close to the surface of the skin, but there is nothing on the skin surface.
Avatar n tn I have a pea sized lump in each armpit. They seem to be appearing and dissappearing over the last couple of weeks and have been very painful. Do you know if this could be linked to the early stages of pregnancy?
Avatar f tn I went to see my OB today for axillae (armpit) lumps. I had noticed a pea sized lump about a month ago but since I was weaning my son, I figured it was just a swollen milk gland. However this past week my whole family got a virus and the lump swelled now to 2.5 inches wide and 1 1/4 inch tall. It is accompanied by yet another lump just above it that is about the size of a silver dollar and a third lump is beginning to form on my opposite axillae. All three are red and extremely painful.
Avatar f tn Today, the right side had little white bumps that i popped and they kind of oozed. The right one also has a lump in it, at least pea sized. The left side feels very hard..but not a lump like the right side has. It looks like rashes on both arms but i'm just not sure with the way the lumps are present. Please help!

918442 tn?1243400736 Though it caused some pain that day, just thinking it was a zit, i ignored it. Well i woke up today and it is HUGE. It is probably in between pea and marble sized, very painful, and hard. Well, today it was bothering me, so i steralized a needle and tried stabbing at it. Well... nothing happened, it didnt even barely bleed. So I am wondering if anyone has ever experienced anything like this.. Or have any insight into what it might be so i can try to do something to ease the pain.
Avatar n tn 5 days ago, 2 of them started flaring up, getting larger and painful. Yesterday I woke up and have a painful lump under my left armpit. I know I have a raging infection, but have to wait till Monday to get an appointment with the breast surgeon. Because I've had these so frequently, I'm not freaking out, just wanted to add my story. I hope everyone who has been suffering from this miserable condition is getting good medical care and taking care of themselves at home as well.
Avatar f tn Maybe I am just paranoid and it is different ones coming up, but it really seems like as soon as one goes down another one is there 3mm away. Always the same pea sized bump just traveling in my armpit. I have tried not using deodorant, not shaving, and keeping it really really clean. We have a lot of ticks in our area, could there be one under my skin traveling around? The bumps wont 'pop' and Ive tried really hard.
Avatar n tn Hi Eight days ago, a reddish bruised area appeared about an inch left of my nipple on my left breast. When I pressed on the area, I can feel a pea sized hard lump. The reddish/bruise is still present along with the lump. The area is slightly raised. It has slowly become more painful, with the past 2 days pain extending towards my left side under armpit. Not sure if it's due to my pressing/ examining this lump lately or just being paranoid.
Avatar f tn I am 16 year old girl. Found a pea sized lump in my armpit. It dosent hurt but I know it's their so it worries me, also my right breast has been feeling tender should I be worried ? I have had it for 3-4 weeks now and it's still stayed the same.
Avatar n tn My shirt was pulled tight there, so I thought it was trauma to a lymph node. I could feel a pea- sized lump. Since then it has grown to about 2 cm by 1 cm. , and 1 cm in height. It is red and very tender. It is hard to the touch. I have no fever, and no obvious infections on my arm, hand, or chest. I placed topical cortisone oinment and antibiotic cream. Any ideas for differential diagnosis? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn I just noticed I had a small pea sized lump in my right armpit this morning while putting on deodorant. Over the last 4 years this lump has come and gone 3 or 4 times. It is usually painful and tender. It also feels soft and I think it is moveable. I am looking for answers to help ease my mind.
Avatar n tn I found a lump under my left armpit tonight and am very worried. It hurts when you touch it and when I move my arm or just put my arm at my side. It is the same color as my skin with a pale pink center. There is a hair in the center (can't pluck it, it's not long enough, it's right at the surface) and I am not shaving it right now, too afraid it will get worse. I did try to squeeze it and that really hurt and made it slightly bigger.
Avatar f tn Hi, about a week ago I felt a pea-sized lump on the outside of my labia majora. It is red but not painful, and I am a bit worried about it. Also today I think that I might be getting a cold sore on the bottom of my lip. I have not had any sexual contact for a few months and I am still a virgin - also I have never taken part in oral sex. I wondered if the cold sore and the genital lump could be related and whether it is worth getting checked out??
Avatar n tn I have a small pea sized or smaller, lump right to the top right of my clitoris, I had another one to the top left a month or two back but it went away when my period ended. It is not painful, and has no strange color, there is no discharge and it does not get larger. It feels solid. Ever heard of this? Should I be frightened?
Avatar n tn Well it's been a year and the one in my LB is the size of a small lemon (Oval) and I have another painful lump on the side close to my armpit. Not sure about the RB but yesterday I had a mammo. The tech came back and took a second set of my LB, (right in the area I felt the new lump), and asked if they could schedule me, would I stay for an Ultrasound. They couldn't but I have an appointment on the 29th.
Avatar n tn ) But yesterday I, too, discovered the lump (pea sized, not read, behind my left ear in the middle. it hurts to touch it, so I don't. I hope it's because I picked up E Coli or Samonella or something and the poison in my body is creating it. So for those worried about this, it's all new for me. I hope it's something in the body that the lymph isn't happy with and that's it.
Avatar f tn About a month 1/2 - 2 months ago, I had a large, painful lump in my armpit, I assumed it was an ingrown hair, and it eventually popped after a weeks or so with much pressure applied, as it was getting very sore (it ended up about the size of a small marble) and some thicker/dryer looking pus came out. I now have a large lump on my genitals, in the area above you vagina where hair grows. I do shave, if that matters.
Avatar n tn Not sure if they have ALWAYS been there (but not painful) or are new. *Within last month or two - Have pain and discomfort in middle of LEFT armpit, near the hollow area. NO swelling that I can tell. Just soreness and pain. It comes and goes - normally several times a week. *Within last month or two - Have pain in upper LEFT arm on the inside (closest to chest).
Avatar n tn My two year old has a hard, pea sized lump on the back of his skull, behing his right ear. He has had an x-ray, the doctors(their were five of them) said it was nothing to worry over and it was the way his skull formed. He was a natural birth and came out very quickly. Hope this helps any worried parents!

Avatar m tn ( In addition to that, I seem to get real strange armpit pains and have a pea sized lump in my armpit which I swear wasn't there a week ago... I wonder did any of you guys had the same experience with xolair? or did any of you experienced a worsening of the hives for the first days after the shot and than a sudden improvement? stiil fighting not to lose hope.... thanks in advance for sharing!
Avatar n tn I have a large lump on my rib that is right below my left breast. It is not in my breast but below my breast.I had a tumor removed a year ago in my right breast, which was benign, but this is strange. It is very large and very distinctive. Can you have a tumor on your rib and not in your breast that might be Breast cancer and what do you think it can be. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Avatar n tn or not lol but the recent one i got about a week ago, i was wondering why it hadnt gone down so i was doing some research and noted some things down then tonight i had a hot bath then took to the lump with a sharp safety pin, just 'gently' tearing the top of the lump a little in various places (just did what my instinct told me to, to be honest!) and it started bleeding slightly (it did hurt) then i gave it a go of squeezing it abit, then alot, then harder etc.
Avatar n tn I have a huge cyst on my inner right thigh that is the size of a ping-pong ball. It is a soft lump on top of a hard lump and is soooooo painful that it is hard to walk. Currently, the area is red, with the top part purple. It is enlongated and rubs my other thigh when I walk. So far, I have been soaking in an Espon salt bath and/or holding a hot part water, part epsome salt compress to it. It is very painful.
