Three days ago I found a lump at the top of my arm pit. It hurts when I press on it or touch it. I cant wear a bra because the wire rubs against it. I have been getting migraine for 2 years now. I went to a specialist and he said it is common. I am a " diagnose yourself" kind of person. So I went to the Internet and the first thing that popped up was breast cancer and lymph nod cancer. Is there any other reason for the lump. Like infection or bacteria? I get sick really easy but I always have. I have an appointment with my care provider. But in the mean time is there anything I can do or see if I do have a tumor or cancer?
