Clogged sweat gland or lymphoma? Small painful lump in armpit, close to skin, slightly red. Remarkably smaller after a few days. No other symptoms.

Lymphoma unlikely

Pain
lymphomas are usually painless. painful lump means some infection and you should talk to primary care doctor (PCP) and examined in PCP office. if needed, dermatology referral. watch for fever, weight loss, night sweats which are usually associated with lymphoma. fever can be associated with infections also and painful swellings.

Could an armpit lump under the skin be a clogged sweat gland? I've had it for 2+ months.

Yes, & other things

Perspiration
Armpit (axilla) lump under the skin could be a clogged sweat gland; also could be a lymph node enlarged due to infection in area that it drains, such as any part of the upper extremity down to the fingernail; of course those nodes also drain the breast and chest wall in the area, which could be from infection or cancer. Lymphoma would be also very serious. If it's two months, time to see your PCP.

Dr. David Brouwer answered:

What is the difference between a suspicious mass in the armpit and a swollen/clogged sweat gland?

Exam

Perspiration
Good question! Often it is difficult for a patient to know the difference between a suspicious mass in the axilla (armpit) and an obstructed or infected sweat gland or hair follicle. If it is red or has a discharge suspect infection and use warm compresses and antibiotics. If it is hard and non-tender it could be serious. See your doctor for an exam.

Can you get an enlarged sweat gland in the armpit? Feels like a lump under the surface of the skin. How long should it Stay there?

Yes but...

Skin
This could be plugged hair follicle, but this usually presents as a painful bump on the surface of the skin, although it can sometimes feel like it is under the skin. This could also be an enlarged lymph node. Your doctor should be able to examine you and explain if this is anything to be concerned about.

what is it when you get bumps under your arm in armpit, when they are squeezed black stuff or gray stuff come out. I read about clogged sweat gland?

Cysts

Perspiration
This dsecribes cysts which may become infected if they are squeezed. The best option is to remove the area permanently with a minor procedure in the office with a dermatologist.

After a strenuous workout, etcc...Next day i noticed bump on armpit. It's painful when touched, not red. Sweat gland, boil or lymph node? I did not wear deodorant during workouts.

It could be

Axilla
any of the three you mentioned but most likely folliculitis. The gland at the root of the hair is clogged and is not able to express the secretion and swell up and get infected. You may need antibiotics and warm compress. Your doctor should be able to tell you when he sees it. Good luck.

I have a ruptured blocked sweat gland on my right underarm that is draining blood and mucusy stuff and it has a hole. What should I do?

You didn't describe

Blood
the size. This sounds like you could have an infected cyst. I would suggest medical assessment. Take care.
