Sausage like thing in both my armpits

Hi guys im 23, and I have this sausage like lump in both my armpits, although one you can feel the left more than the right one, It does not hurt but I just came back from my cottage and did a lot of canoeing and fishing, I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I am pretty scared, can anyone help me clear my mind of all this worrying I do! thanks -Bobby Razz

Hi it sound like a boil. If it do not hurt then its okay. The heat from under your arm will help it go down. But if it bothers you then i suggest going to the doctor or ER and have it drained.
Hope this helps and good luck!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Hidradenitis suppurativa is one of the cause responsible for these. Warm compression and analgesic are needed.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
