CP...yes!: To me, CP is CP until otherwise ruled-out (for a heart attack). If you haven't seen your md & had an ekg, do it! women present differently than men. If you have a family history of heart attacks, it's even more urgent to see your md. He will probably want a cardiac stress test, blood, & an ekg. Do you smoke? Have high bp? High cholesterol? Diabetes? These are very important to know. See your md! ...Read more

Infection most commo: Infection is the most common cause of an enlarged lymph node in any location. If it has been present less than two to four weeks then keep an eye on it. If swelling and redness is severe then you may need antibiotics to clear. If the lymph node is present more than four weeks then see your physician to make sure more serious things are not present. Get your mammogram done also. ...Read more

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.

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.

I'm a 20 year old female, and have noticed a hard, painless pea-sized lump in my armpit. It's been there for two years or so now, what should I do?

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
