Pea Sized Lump in Armpit

June 19, 2018 - 17:56

Hi ,I am 23 I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced something similar. And Google is a bad option as it has increased my worry.

So about six months ago I have discovered a small hard painless lump the size of let’s say those tiny plastic balls that are stuffed in kids toys ( I couldn’t think of anything else) to now growing to be about pea sized with another larger lump attached to it ( the larger lump is let’s say the size of a 5c coin) . They are both hard , and when I touch it I can move it just a little bit but when I realease them they go back in the the same spot in my right armpit. No Pain at all even if I touch it.

Two days ago I got a full pain that went from where the lump is and carried through my whole arm for a short while , but this could be just my mind playing tricks. I don’t know.

If any of you ladies has experienced something similar , I would really appreciate you posting your story as I don’t know whether i should worry or not.

Hi Nikaa,

Thank you for your online message. I am sorry to hear of your worry and concern. May I suggest you talk to your gp about this? Lumps and bumps in the body may be nothing to worry about but sometimes these lumps or bumps can be something more serious that may need treatment. It is very difficult to ascertain what this lump may be without having an examination by a doctor. So as suggested above maybe you should get it checked out by your Gp.

I hope this information helps,

Kindest regards.
