In brief: Armpit lumps
One of the common causes of the development of lumps under armpit is shaving or use of antiperspirants, as they can cause cysts and infection thus, the lump.
Other causes include other types of infections, allergies, and rarely malignancy. See your local for diagnosis and treatment.
