Axilla: Sometimes an axilla(armpit) feels puffy to the patient despite no evident pathology on examination.

I recently found a lump in my armpit. It's pretty painful. I now have three lumps in my armpit that are painful and slightly red. Cancer symptom?

Not really: Cancer in the armpit essentially represents metastasis to the lymph nodes high up near the axillary vein. They are for the most part painless and would not be associated with redness. Rather one would expect inflammation of the sweat glands right under the skin for which warm soaks and possibly antibiotics would be effective. ...Read more

Hi  I  am 23 yrs old unmarried gal. I feel having a pimple sized thing in my armpit and a lump in my breast .What  can this be symptom for?

Go see your doc if growing or getting more concerned. ...Read more

BP management: If you are having pain during the daytime, perhaps it is related to muscular strain. If there are any masses, lymph nodes which can be felt, I would suggest a follow up visit with your PCP. This problem is unlikely to be related to the flu illness which you had in December. Since you have high BP, then regular check ups are indicated. ...Read more
