Bump in armpit!
« on: December 28, 2013, 10:04:07 AM »
I know it's HA talking but I just need some reassurance please...I just noticed a bump under my arm like a large pimple but not red. It feels sore when I touch it, and I can move it around and lift it from my armpit. That means it isn't a lymph node or cancer, right? Has anyone had this and how long until it goes away? I do shave my under arm area and use scented deodorant so hoping it's just an ingrown hair or pimple but I keep worrying that it's a swollen lymph node or cancer.

Could be a lymph node - which just means a random infection your body is fighting off, sometimes they swell for no reason, I wouldn't be concerned.

Thanks for your responses! Hoping it's a sweat gland or ingrown hair bc swollen lymph nodes scares me, I know it doesn't always mean lymphoma but that's the first thing I think of, of course

I get these from time to time. They're really sore and I always assumed it was an in growing hair.
