Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Pinching pain in right armpit when move arm -- dr said no swollen glands or lumps. 10 weeks pregnant. What could cause this?

Breast tissue

Breasts_enlarged
Progesterone, one of the hormones of pregnancy, does cause breast tissue enlargement in pregnancy, it's possible that this pinching pain is related to breast enlargement and swelling. If you had a breast exam by the doctor and you don't feel anything yourself, likely okay. But keep an eye on it. Breast cancers do occur in young women, so be vigilant and your own advocate if you're worried.

Pain under armpit near breast during pregnancy?

Exam

Pain
Breast and axillary pain in pregnancy will require a physical exam to determine the cause and treatment. At 23 it is unlikely to be cancer.

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

Can a swollen lymph node in your armpit be an early sign of pregnancy?

No

Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well

Before pregnancy my boobs were very much even, &now, not so much. Left boob is smaller & has "armpit fat" where my right is fine. Why? Can I fix this?

Absolutely

Predicting how your breasts will recover after breast feeding is difficult. Asymmetries are not uncommon. A combination of breast lift or reduction as well as liposuction can address your concerns. .

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

I noticed an armpit lump in June '13. It hasn't changed size or hurt. I am 24 and now 6 months pregnant should I be worried about this lump?

Lumps and bumps

Axilla
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.
