Lump between armpit and breast.

I found a "lump" between my left armpit and breast. It is about the size of a dime, under the skin and sore to the touch. Is this something to be concerned about? I'am a 58 years old female and been through menopause. Thank you for any information that you can give me.

Since you are 58 I am assuming that you have been having mammograms for years now. If you only have a month or so until your next scheduled mammogram, you could wait. If it will be longer than that, I think you should schedule a doctor visit/ mammogram as soon as possible. Also, if you have a family history of breast cancer, you should make an appointment immediately.
