Got a very painful, bump/cyst-like thing in my armpit. Can see a bit of redness, less than size of dime. What could it be & how do I treat? Hurts!
Cause for such lump in armpit is a plugges SEBACEOUS CYST. This may require opening and drainage by a surgeon (although most family physicians perfrom such surgery) In the meantime HOT WET PACKS (or lying back in a hot tub) may encourage opening and draining "on its own".
Hope this helps!

If it is not causing problems or growing, we tend to leave them alone, but it is important for your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes, if it is not clearly a cyst, we can biopsy the spot to be sure. ...Read more
