Of concern!: You may not have a serious problem but one cannot take that chance. Any lump under the arm of a 52 y/o female with associate pain and radiation of pain demands a good exam by a physician and probable other studies such as a mammogram, an ultrasound if indicated and perhaps even an MRI of the breast and perhaps a biopsy. If this is a cyst or infection, other treatments may be simple & all u need.
