Small lump in armpit that moves position when I put my arm up or down. Dr says swollen lymph node and don't worry, but it's been there for 3 months?

Your doctor's right: Almost certainly. Leave it alone. I'm going to assume it's freely movable and not fixed to surrounding structures. Many people your age have these. If it's anything nasty, it would have declared itself. I trust you do not have a dominant breast lump or obvious illness that you're ignoring. ...Read more

Numbness in my left chest/pectoral area, around armpit and breast. No other symptoms, no lumps on breast. Has been going on for 2 weeks. Usually happens at night. What could it be?

Left chest:numb: This kind of one sided "numbness" involving armpit and breast can arise from compression of the brachial plexus just under the upper arm. The compression may be related to your position during sleep, and may be more frequent if lymph nodes are swollen in the underarm area. See your healthcare provider for an exam and testing if this continues. ...Read more

Have a lump in my armpit size of a small grape. Dermatologist said it's a cysts bait its deep. I want it out. Will they just numb it like a scalp one?

Have a lump in my armpit size of a small grape. Dermatologist said it's a cysts bait its deep. I want it out. Will they just numb it like a scalp one?

Local anesthesia: Typically the skin around the cyst is numbed by injecting a small amount of lidocaine around the cyst, and into the skin where the small incision will be made with a scalpel. You may experience some temporary, minor discomfort, followed by numbness from the lidocaine. You may feel pressure and small tugging during removal of the cysts, but you should not expect a lot of pain. Good luck! ...Read more

It could be the volt: I would have expected the voltarel to have been absorbed but it is possible it is still there in one form or another. It may have caused a hematoma which was there initially and now has fibrosis in it. You can see your physician to evaluate this. You may need a biopsy. The numbness may be related to nerve injury. ...Read more

I feel numbness in my upper left arm, have a mysterious lump in my neck getting MRI in a few days should I worry?

No: Worrying never seems to help much. As with many things in medicine, this could be something harmless and relatively easy to fix, or it could be more serious. It is important to follow through and get the MRI scan. In the meantime, try not to worry and focus on eating properly and getting eight hours of sleep a night. If you feel anxious, go for a long walk. ...Read more
