I Have A Small Lump Under My Armpit
Lymph node: More than likely you have an acute infection somewhere on the upper extremity that is seeding a lymph node in your arm pit. The lymph node filters the bacteria, virus or fungus and then reacts as "killer cells" come to attack the agent. The lymph node responds by growing, producing more cells, and can get tender due to the agents and chemicals released. You may need antibiotics or see pcp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi i have found a smallish lump under my left collar bone feels like a sack of some sort under my skin?
Lymph node?: Most likely a lymph node, which houses immune cells. Some of these permanently reside in the node and others go in and out. In the context of infection, there would be an influx of white cells as the overall immune response adjusts. However, rarely, a lymph node enlarges due to an influx in cancer cells. For this reason, if it persists, it is worth seeing a physician and completing a work up. ...Read more

What to do if I have a small lump under my armpit.. and it feels as though I have lumps in my breasts, too. could this be breast cancer?
Always possible: small lumps in armpit are usually of no concern unless they are enlarging and increasing in number. Lumps in the breast are usually normal since by definition breast tissue is lumpy. A solitary firm lump always requires investigation. Either way a mammo and sono should be performed and any further treatment would proceed from there. ...Read more

You should let a doctor take a look at it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
