  • This where a set of glands is so you could be coming down with something and your glands are inflamed. It could just be a cyst filled. It probably needs to be x rayed or ultra sounded to be sure. I would just call your family dr to feel it and they can refer you for testing. You don't need a specialist until you have the testing done and a radiologist says what it is. It's probably harmless so try to relax and just call your doc.

  • Head to an urgent care, cause you probably can't get in to a dr. today, they can do xrays there too, then go from there. I'd take some ibuprofen(advil) and get it looked at asap!!

  • Go get looked at but what ever you do, don't be cutting it have glands under there for a reason.

  • It is most likely just cyst. If it's mobile then it's not likely to be cancerous.
    Go to your primary care doctor and they can refer you to someone.

  • Did you recently have a baby or are nursing??? After I had my youngest son, when I was still in the hospital, I had a large lump in my armpit and my doctor said it was the milk building up...she was right and it went away, but really freaked me out

  • Don't panic. What exactly do you mean "Another Lump"? What was it before? See your doctor as soon as possible and get a referral to specialist if needed. Try soaking in a warm bath with epsom salts, it may help reduce the pain and will help with the stress you're feeling.
