A: A lump under your arm pit definitely warrants investigation. It could be something as simple as a cyst (fluid filled lesion), swollen lymph node, abscess (infection) or a lipoma (fat filled lesion). More concerning would be a tumor that could possibly be malignant (cancerous). The bottom line is to have an examination by a medical professional.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Call your doc today: I would call your doc first for eval and treatment--possible need of incision/drainage which can be done in office with ease. This problem can be quite painful, but not really needing an er visit.
So, I suggest calling your doc rather than heading to er (a very expensive visit)...You may end up waiting in er many hours just to be given some antibiotics. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a bump in my under arm. Could that sbe cancer?

Should check it out.: I'm unsure from your question whether the bump is on the skin or deep in the armpit. If it's deep in the armpit, then you should have your dr. Look at it. That's because, although cancer is unusual at your age, lymphomas can show up as swollen glands, fatigue, and weight loss as you have. If the bump is on the skin, it is less worrisome, but you should still probably show it to your dr. ...Read more
