Possible staph: Many causes of painful inflammatory conditions of the intertriginous zones of the body (e.g. skin folds). One major cause is recurrent colonization with staph (bacteria) due in part to the local environment which is ideal for bacterial growth. If you are shaving your armpits, you may be introduction bacteria by using or re-using razors which cause trauma of the skin which can lead to "bumps". ...Read more

Hidradenitis supp.: You may just have 'sebaceous cysts' or another condition called 'hidradenitis suppurativa' which occurs deep in the skin around oil (sebaceous) glands and hair follicles. The parts of the body affected — armpits (axilla) and groin, for example — are also the main locations of apocrine sweat glands.

Lump: What you describe does not sound to be dangerous, not anything like cancer, since it has been asymptomatic and stable for 2 years. If you want to have it removed you can see a general surgeon or a family physician, most of whom are able to do simple excisions. The doctor may then advise to send it for a pathology report to know specifically what it is. ...Read more

Get it checked out: Lumps at your age are almost never anything serious, but i'm not saying never. Most common is fibrocystic breast tissue, where the breast tissue starts feeling "lumpy" to you. But there are things like plugged ducts, abcesses, swollen lymph nodes, and that extremely rare breast cancer at this age. An ultrasound may be in order after exam by your primary care physician. ...Read more
