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

Abcess.: Sounds like you have a small abcess. Pain may be relieved by incision although it is by no means necessary. May use hot compresses several times a day until this "points" and ruptures on its own. The fact that pain is bad indicates that may be soon. It is remotely possible that this is a lymph node that has been very stimulated. Same treatment. See someone if not improving. ...Read more

Mosquito bites: Mosquito bites would be unusual in that area. This is more likely to be an infected hair follicle, especially if you shave. If it worsens, see your pcp for an examination. ...Read more

Check with Doc: Breast masses are common. Most of the time they are benign. They should always be checked out with your doctor. The evaluation may involve a mammogram and an ultrasound as well as an examination. The findings that you described are commonly associated with cysts and can be affected by caffeine and also by shaving with lymph node changes in the breast or armpit. Cancer usually does not come and go. ...Read more

I'm not worried: A single guy with a social life does well to get checked for HIV yearly just as a courtesy to those who he may date during the year to come. But I'm not worried about the lymph node. That can be from a hangnail or a blister or scratch working on your car motor. Remember "your last risk" as a time when you shared love, treasure it and learn, and love safely and well. ...Read more
