I have a painful lump below my left armpit and two small pea sized lumps in my left breast that went away 1 month ago but are now back. What are they?

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.

I have 3 small lumps in my armpit x 4 months. It started with one lump and is now 4. I have also had a sore in my nose that goes & comes x3 months?

Two issues

You should be seen by a doctor and both the nodes in your armpit and your breasts and surrounding areas examined carefully. The nasal sore may be recurrent Herpes simplex infection, but the same doctor could confirm this more easily with an exam of the lesions.

See MD

Nothing substitutes for an exam by your doctor. You should see him/her asap. Breast tissue may occur in the armpit area. Just ask any nursing mom. So a careful clinical exam of this area is very important...

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

What could cause the two small lumps in my armpit?

Different options

Axilla
That area has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, tendons and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done.

I have painful lumps under left armpit and one by my groin??

Lymph nodes?

Open-uri20121218-30512-rv5d9z
It is always concerning to have swollen lymph nodes so it is important to see your doctor to be sure it is not that. It could also be cysts, or a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa (acne inversa). This also requires specialized treatment, so you'll want to see a dermatologist for sure to get a diagnosis and proper therapy.

Numerous things

See a doctor and have these examined and diagnosed appropriately. Doctors who cannot see and touch the lesions and take a full history should not be expected to be able to diagnose.

i have a pain underneath my armpit next to my left breast i have no lumps but the pain comes and goes?

Breast tissue

It is not unusual to have ectopic breast tissue under your arm which is affected by your cycle just like your breast. If it bothers you see your doctor
