Pea Sized Painless Lump In Armpit
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
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've found a small pea sized lump under my left armpit, that is painless and is moveable. Also my glands are also always swollen like big hard lumps.
Seen a Doctor lately: If your lymph glands are enlarged and growing bigger, you need to have them checked by your physician. Lymph nodes do not enlarge unless you have either Infection or Cancer in the lymph glands. So go seek medical evaluation and a physical examination by a doctor, soon. ...Read more
My son has a small pea sized lump 3" below his right armpit its very soft and does not hurt its been 3 wk and he's is 12. He has only mild allergies?
Hmmm...: It could be a benign lymph node, but if soft, smooth and painless, probably a lipoma, a benign little "tumor" of fat under the skin. They are of no consequence unless they grow big enough to be seen or be in the way, then people often have them removed. If it grows bigger, gets hard, firm tender or red, talk to his doc. ...Read more

Small, not quite pea size hard lump underneath right armpit. Does not hurt, does not form visible bump, no color. Had over a year. Cyst, ingrown hair?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 19 and noticed a couple pea size little bumps that I'm able to move around under my armpit. I noticed them two weeks ago, and thought nothing of it and thought they'll go away but didn't and it seems like I have more little lumps now. No pain or any d
See doc.: Would be reasonable to see doc. Little lumps like this usually go away, but two weeks and a growing number sounds suspicious enough that you should see someone. ...Read more
