Lymph nodes?: It is always concerning to have swollen lymph nodes so it is important to see your doctor to be sure it is not that. It could also be cysts, or a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa (acne inversa). This also requires specialized treatment, so you'll want to see a dermatologist for sure to get a diagnosis and proper therapy. ...Read more

How do I tell a malignant lump in the armpit from a benign one?

How do I tell a malignant lump in the armpit from a benign one?

See your doctor: Hard to tell. Lumps can be confusing and concerning. Reasons to see your doc: pain, redness, fever, feeling bad all over, weight loss, a lump that's been there longer than 3-4 weeks, a lump that's changing no matter how long it's been there. If you have questions or you're just not sure, it's a good time to see your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My sister has two medium sized lumps on her chest between her shoulders and neck and one under her armpit. What could be the cause.

My sister has two medium sized lumps on her chest between her shoulders and neck and one under her armpit. What could be the cause.

Chest lumps: The causes of your sister's lumps can be multiple. It doesn't sound like they are in her breasts, though, but if they are, she needs to have them checked promptly. I suspect you may be referring to lymph nodes since lymph nodes are located in the armpits and in the areas between the shoulders and neck. I would have them checked as well as those lymph nodes may need prompt attention. ...Read more

It can be serious and often treatment with antibiotics is needed when the area becomes infected, which is qute common. See a doctor, preferably a dermatologist. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a lump under each armpit. One has gotten smaller and the other just showed up. They are painful to touch. They are small pea sized lumps and hard?

I'd Bet It's Sweat: May be small areas of infection. Sweat glands can get irritated or clogged then get bigger & painful. For some people it can become a big recurring problem so best to get it examined if, unlike the other side, it doesn't resolve in a few days. Until then, see if you are sensitive to your deodorant. The topical antibacterial gels with aloe work well but if you sweat a lot you may need something milder. ...Read more

I had a lump in my armpit for one year. It was very small and pain free. Now in 2 days it has become enlarged, swollen and very painful. Is it cancer?

Probably not: If you're a 24 year old male, it's extremely unlikely that you have a cancer causing a lump in the armpit. It is much more likely that it is a subcutaneous abscess. The proper treatment for something like that is I&D (incision and drainage). This can be done under local anesthesia in a doctor's office, preferably either a dermatologist or a general surgeon. ...Read more

My boyfriend has a rash growing underneath his left armpit and is spreading to his right one. There no lumps or anything just kind of red, and he says it burns

My boyfriend has a rash growing underneath his left armpit and is spreading to his right one. There no lumps or anything just kind of red, and he says it burns

Hi.: Hi. I cannot diagnose the reason for the rash in your boyfriend’s underarm. What are possible reasons? Has he started using a new soap or deodorant that he might be reacting to? Is he wearing clothes that fit tight at the underarm and are causing friction? If either of these might be the culprit, stop using the new product or try wearing clothes that are looser near the armpit. Wearing clothes that are made of natural fabric like cotton may also be beneficial as it will allow for better ventilation. Good hygiene is also important. Ensure that the arm is dried off well after washing.
If his rash does not improve with these suggestions, he could have a fungal infection. Because the underarm is moist, warm and does not get much air, it is the perfect place for a fungus to grow. He may need to see his doctor to be evaluated. ...Read more

One tonsil slightly bigger than the other, congestion, itch over body, lump in armpit. Could this be lymphoma? I'm really worried

Med-check up: If you have a lump in the armpit, it needs medical examination by a physician to confirm that it is real and of a size that may need a biopsy. Any lump that is growing over a period of time requires examination by a medical professional and a biopsy to check for the cause, which can be a lymphoma or other conditions like infection and occasionally a cancer, although it is unlikely at your age. ...Read more

I have these pea sized lumps in my armpits? One is red and very sore and the other is just a bit sore and not red, what is it? Cant sleep cause of it

Likely infection: What you describe is likely an infection of the hair follicle called folliculitis. This can happen if dried sweat stays around too long and can also be started initially by just an irritation to the area by the deodorant used. Warm compresses to the area may help. Stop using the deodorant. You may need an antibiotic. See your MD for diagnosis, recommendations and treatment. ...Read more

My 25 year old partner (male) over the last 2weeks has developed some lumps, 2 in his breast (right side) one in each armpit and another in his groin?

Seek evaluation: Well, I certainly feel a medical exam is in order. Your doctor or provider will ask other questions concerning weight loss, fatigue or malaise, and night sweats. Groin and armpit lumps could be swollen lymph nodes, which could be indicative of a systemic disease process. Call your doctor for an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more
