I'm a 20 year old female, and have noticed a hard, painless pea-sized lump in my armpit. It's been there for two years or so now, what should I do?
Lump: What you describe does not sound to be dangerous, not anything like cancer, since it has been asymptomatic and stable for 2 years.

The doctor may then advise to send it for a pathology report to know specifically what it is. ...Read more
Small, not quite pea size hard lump underneath right armpit. Does not hurt, does not form visible bump, no color. Had over a year. Cyst, ingrown hair?

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
