I have a lump in my armpit it's painless an its been there for a few months. I think it could be cancer.
I bet it's not: If it starts growing or gets stuck to your nearby structures, get it seen. Otherwise, it's probably just the axillary lymph node that many of us have, especially if at some time you had an infection or contact dermatitis on that extremity and it got a little bit scarred up. Glad you're a good observer of your body. ...Read more

You are right: Cancer commonly is a painless bump/lump. But some tumors can be tender. Armpit is prone to get infection in the hair follicles which can produce a red, tender painful lump but it usually settles down in one to two weeks. Breast cancer, of course can spread to the lymph nodes of the armpit and produce a firm, painless lump there. That is what you need to be sure about. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
