About 3/4 weeks ago I discovered a small lump in the armpit (wasn't even looking for it, I just had an itch!) I ignored it for a few weeks just to see if it was perhaps a spot as it looked like one was coming up (which it did..But went again, without taking the lump!)

it isn't quite as easy to find as it was, however it doesn't feel any smaller or bigger for that matter. But it's starting to get a bit sore when it is touched now.. A bit of a dull ache..I can also push it about..Which I heard is a good sign..!?...

I did manage to get an appointment (after phoneing for 2 days straight!, answering phones is not my docters strong point) and have an appointment in two days..

But I was just hoping for some advice..

Probably just a lymph node, always good to get checked out though. Sore is a good sign indicating an infection rather than a carcinoma.
Good luck
