I am a 62 yo male and have overnight developed three painful lumps under my armpit. They were not there when I went to bed but I woke up about 2am with some discomfort and felt these lumps. I have recently had an extensive health check and all results were satisfactory. I read that these may be caused by sweat glands blocking. On that same day I had undertaken a heavy weights session in a gym (I have been in training with a persoal trainer for 6 months as I will be trekking in April). I will be seeing a doctor in the next few weeks but could tyhis be caused by a heavy exercise session ?
