So I don't want to freak out. But I kind of freaked myself out this morning... ** UPDATE**

I woke up this morning with a pain under my armpit.

I just grabbed under there, and then I began feeling around

I found a lump. A big one. More long wise than width wise. And it's not a ball.

I went and asked my grandmother to feel it bc I didn't know if I was just making things up. She felt it too

I called my mother, and that's when I couldn't compose myself. I wasn't sobbing, but def had tears rolling down my cheeks. ESP when I started talking about my boys.. Ugh

Ok I started googling (worst mistake ever) and good thing is, I found out cancer doesn't always hurt (is that true?) and the swollen lymph node (what I think it is) isn't like the photos.

I'm not gonna freak out until I know for sure. Even then, I'll try and compose myself. I'm just scared. I'm only 28. And my babies are still so young

Ok- HAPPY THOUGHTS!!!!!! :D

Anyways- I have an appointment set up for 10:00.

Anyone else been through this?

**UPDATE**

I saw my OB. She did my exam, and she noticed the lump. Good news is, the lump moves, she said if it was worrisome, that it would be fixed in one position and hard.

She said it could also be from my period- (which my breasts never get tender)- or it could be bc I drink a lot of soda

She scheduled me to get a breast sonogram.

I scheduled it for next Monday.

I've had swollen lymph nodes in the armpit area before. I had a virus and cold.

Good luck and don't worry too much :)

It's probably a pimple! My husband has this a few years ago and it was nasty but resolved! Good luck!

Well freaking out isn't going to help anyone. I've had swollen lymph nodes there. All you can do is wait until you see a doctor and go from there.
I have tumors (no cancerous) so I know the wait to find out is not easy!

No but dh has. You can get them from using antiper...(however you spell it) bc it stops sweat and sets up an infection in the lymph nodes. If that's it, it is remedied fairly easily.

I had swollen lymph nodes in my neck a few years back. It was the size of a walnut. I had a few. I had to get testing done, and they were benign. Thank god.

Now I'm just gonna go in this morning and find out what this is too..

My mother literally JUST told me that. But I've been using the same deodorant for years. Hopefully it's that

No babies.

No, but I'll be getting my period in about 9 days
