  • We have instincts for a reason. If you are scared, there is something in your brain that triggered it. I would go, if for no other reason than to put your mind at ease.
    Good luck.

  • Could be a swollen gland. Have you been sick recently or cut your armpit shaving? If it doesn't go away see a Dr. & get a Mamo.

  • Go in and get seen to 1: make sure it is nothing to worry about in case it is. and 2: put your mind at ease.

    Always better to be safe then sorry.

  • ^^^I get that too. I also get breast cysts when I drink too much iced tea. I think it has to do with the tanic acid in the tea. Anyway, I'd wait until after your period ends & see if you still feel swelling. If you have never had a mammogram then you may want to get one now anyway. This way as you age & have more mamos, they can use this one as a baseline to compare the rest to. I had one because I had pain & a lump & like I said it turned out that I had a bunch of cysts. One was the size of a lemon. They aspirated them & I went back as needed but since I eliminated the tea haven't had them since. Sometimes dark sodas do it to me too. Stop soda & tea also & see if that helps :)

  • don't get to worked up, make an apt and check it out. Could be its nothing now but could be later and you are getting a head start alert. we know our bodies better than anyone so if you are concerned most definitely go to the doctor. Let us know what you find out. Sending good thoughts your way

  • It wouldn't hurt to get it checked out. I had a lump two years ago. I had it checked out. It wound up being nothing but it made me feel better.

  • You bet get it checked! go as soon as possible...
