See a physician!: Your doctor will ask you many detailed questions - including what the time span of enlargement has been and your medical history. In combination with a physical exam (of your entire body, including special attention to the consistency of those ymph nodes) and probably some tests, your doctor will narrow down the range of possibilities. ...Read more

Pea sized lump in armpit. How do I remove this?

Pea sized lump in armpit. How do I remove this?

Surgical excision: Most small lumps in the armpit, particularly if superficial, are sebaceous cysts due to a damaged hair follicle. Unless they become large and bothersome, most sebaceous cysts can be left alone. The most important thing is to have the lump examined by a qualified health care professional to make sure that it is indeed most likely a sebaceous cyst and not something of more concern. ...Read more

I have large pea size lump  under armpit for mths. It has got slightly  bigger..It moves  -armpit  sore sometimes. Dad/2 Aunts/&2 uncles -cancer.Im 50?

Get seen: This may be anything from a benign epithelial cyst to an infected hair or gland to a benign reactive lymph node (my guess) to something worrisome. No one here can really tell you much more. At your age the only malignancy that is at all likely to present like this is Hodgkin's, and this would be unlikely to progress this slowly. Get seen when it is convenient. ...Read more

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

Lymph node: I think that waiting until your baby is born in two weeks is fine. Lymphoma is usually not tender. Reactive lymph nodes are tender and are benign. They can enlarge in response to infection or other stimulus in the area, including immunizations, virus, or other. Pea sized is also not as worrisome as a larger lymph node would be in that area. ...Read more

Probably a cyst: Cysts are small, firm bumps under the skin that are filled with keratin. When squeezed, some will produce the keratin which is white, cheesy and sometimes stinky. If it is not causing problems or growing, we tend to leave them alone, but it is important for your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes, if it is not clearly a cyst, we can biopsy the spot to be sure. ...Read more
