Lumps and bumps: I don't know whether you should be worried, but would definitely want this examined by a physician and a tentative diagnosis established. If it looks at all suspicious they might suggest a needle biopsy. Good luck and have a great baby. ...Read more

Hello dr during my 1 pregnancy i noticed swelling in my armpit my baby is taking breast feed and now i noticed swelling is decrease then before i feel?

Unclear question...: However, if a woman has swelling in her armpit area each time she has a baby and breastfeeds, she might have some extra breast tissue (milk-producing glands) in the armpit area. Her primary care doctor or her Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate to see if that is the case. ...Read more

This is not dangerous, thank goodness!. To be sure there are no suspicious findings, bring it to the attention of your ob. If it causes cosmetic problems after pregnancy then get the extra tissue taken out surgically... ...Read more

If inside the armpit, after delivery it may go away by itself. It may be enlarged lymph node due to breast engorgement. Please do not worry too much.it does not sound a serious problem. ...Read more
