  • It does sound like a boil. You can make a poltice out of file' and put that on there. It should clear up in about 2 days. (file' is the same as sassafrass)

  • I would be concerned about breast cancer and have it checked out by my doctor.

  • I had the same thing and I squeezed the crap out of it. Some yellowish liquid came out I'm guessin it was pus.

  • I had those a few times. I went to the dr cause they freaked me out. They were really bad ingrown hair from shaving. They were big painful bumps. I put hot packs on them and it helped.

  • I agree with beeky, my grandma had breast cancer and it started with a lump under her armpit. Even if it isn't i would have a dr check it out just to be sure. GL
