Left armpit lump
I am 31 years old, and 37 weeks pregnant. I have had a lump under my right armpit since I was 8 wks pregnant. I have had an Ultrasound on it, and the Radiologist said it was a lymph node, and insisted that it was no worry. He also said if I continued to worry, I could always have it biopsied, but that it was probably nothing. It is tender sometimes, but I still worry everyday that it could be cancer. You never really know unless you have the proper tests done. I have not been ill, and have never had a problem like this before. I plan to have it biopsied in the next month, after the baby is born, to put my mind at ease.

Hey guys very interesting reading. I'm 19 years old, recently got a Tatoo and noticed 3 days later pimples around the Tatoo and all on the right hand side of my body with is where the Tatoo is. I have never gotten a pimple bot on my face before. EVER!!! I also had diarrhea the next day which was weird and developed a flu. I am alway sick. Have had glandular fever and constantly get tonsillitis. I was a premature baby and have weak lungs. The lady that I live with has HIV and i didnt know. I used her creams on my Tatoo. Could I have caught it? After 2 weeks of the flu like symptoms, coughing, runny nose, sore throat, sore body and really bad neck pain, loss of appetite I'm starting to get back on track.'but I had a few pimples under my right armpit. I stopped using the paw paw gel on my Tatoo and within 3 days the pimples subsided. Now i have lump under the skin in my right armpit. It sore and really hurts and is really uncomfortable. Could I have something serious? Please..... Help!

Armpit lump
Please guys, don't let anyone tell you online that your symptoms are nothing to worry about. They cannot see or feel your lumps and have no way of knowing what they are and if they do or do not require medical attention. I don't want to scare anyone - the fact is that breast cancer is very rare, particularly under the age of 40 - but as unlikely as it is to be BC it could be a number of other things that either do or don't require medical intervention. Go to a doctor and get the expertise you need. Believe me, with any medical condition early intervention leads to better prognosis. It only gets harder to treat and more expensive with time! I have had breast cancer but the lump was in my breast not my armpit. It was painful, however, and felt tender to the touch. So BC is not always painless. Good luck to everyone and please get things checked out!

Hey, I'm 16 and I have a lump under my right armpit for more than a year now. It's not painful and it's just a small lump. If it's more than a year is it bad? I'm getting really worried!
