I posted a little awhile ago about a lump in my armpit. It was about an inch long and was pretty hard! It was even very noticeable just by looking at it. I was freaking out and SO sure that it was lymphoma (my biggest fear). My OB doctor told me it was a lymph node and my HA spiraled out of control. I then asked another doctor about it a week later and he said he thought it was an infected sebaceous cyst and gave me antibiotics to see if it would go down. I've now been on the antibiotics for over a week and it has shrunk so much that I can barely feel it! I am so relieved, but this just goes to show that even the scariest symptoms can turn out to be nothing!  ;D

Great news !!

Don't be surprised if you still feel a very small hard little bump for several more weeks.  I THINK mine are some type of scar tissue that forms from the infection, and it takes a LOT longer for that to go away vs. the initial swelling and infection.
