I am 31 years old and I found a lump in my armpit (1 single lump), close to the chest wall however appears to be where a crease is, it is hard to explain.
One year ago I was having discomfort in that same arm and armpit went to a breast surgeon she said it was mastaglia. So last week I went back to dr when I found this lump doing a routine exam. She said it was inflamed and put me on antibioitics.. I go back in one week. Antibioitics are done. I am worried that it is not going down but I am so freaked out about it I can't tell. It feels weird, I think last week it was more hard, but today it feels alittle mushy.
The first thought is breast cancer when you find a lump, what scares me the most is, from having pains 1 yr ago and now this. Having had a cervical cancer scare in 2007 and all the googling which I am doing and should not be.. When it appears there and if it is cancer it is too late. I am supposed to be planning a vacation with my husband but all i am doing is worrying about this lump. I asked the dr what if it don't go away she said we willl talk about it then. I don't know what to make of it. No other lumps, no other nodes that are swollen. Any thoughts? Any advice would be great.
