Visual Dx: Hi, it’s hard to say without a picture but there is a great app that may be able to help you get a diagnosis without being seen in person by a dermatologist. The app is called VisualDX and is one of the best, if not the best out there. Many clinicians, including myself, use it. Just snap a photo and it gives you a list of possible diagnoses.

These: These could be either cystic lesions or nodules. There are many different types, some more worrisome than others. The fact that they go away is a good sign. However, the bottom line here is to have an evaluation by his primary care provider or dermatologist for a clear diagnosis.
Good luck. ...Read more

Painful hard and warm bump came mid day yesterday on armpit no head to it. I use natural deodorant and shower daily and use baby powder.

Painful hard and warm bump came mid day yesterday on armpit no head to it. I use natural deodorant and shower daily and use baby powder.

Pustule?: Bumps on armpit areas may be small boils (skin infections; small abscesses) related to hair follicles, or oil or sweat glands. A visit to one's primary care doctor does help, as bumps are very hard to describe in words. Antibiotics may be needed, if there are signs of infection. Others causes of bumps are possible, but less likely. If bumps are mysterious-looking, a dermatologist can examine them. ...Read more

The: The most important question here is if the lump was present prior to the incident where he bumped his arm. This is a common, the discovery of a lesion that is thought to be from the injury that occurred but was actually present prior to that. The bottom line here is to have your son evaluated by his primary care provider. It may just be a simple cyst or lipoma, however it needs to be seen.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Bump under left armpit, red/brown/bruised sometimes painful, and hard, the center of it peels sometimes but hurts to pull the skin off. Cancerous?

Unlikely. Abscess?: What you describe is very typical of an abscess. Cancer at that location is super-duper rare in teenagers. If it hurts, it's probably an abscess. Good idea to have it looked at. ...Read more

Bf is 45 has a nickel sized raised very round hard bump under the skin in his armpit very painful has apt tomorrow but we are scared what could it be?

Possible abscess: This is a common location to have an abscess, a local skin infection, which is easily treated by opening it and allowing it to drain, which may hurt briefly, but will release the pressure and there will be less pain afterwards as it drains. Other causes are possible of course, but that seems most likely. The doctor will sort if out, but it is probably nothing major, depending on your BF's health, ...Read more

Last week Monday night I felt a small bump on my arm with a little blue around the next morning up till today it has been blue the bump is stil their feels like a little rock under my skin?

What else?: Did you pull any muscle or tendon from straining your arm excessively (weight lifting?)? Did you get bitten by an insect? My guess is that this is from a hemorrhage which will likely take a couple more weeks to go away often leaving a yellowish tinge on the skin for a little longer. If the lump fails to improve or gets larger, best to consult your doctor. ...Read more

If it gets red, warm, painful it represent the bump got infected and a doc would need to see you. ...Read more
