I have a lump under my armpit that does not seem to be going away. This is not the first time I have had one of these. It is sore to the touch. I don't know if this is dry skin, eczema, or something else. What could it be?
Hi - I'm a little unclear if you feel lumps in both armpits, or just one. If both, then it's very unlikely this is breast cancer, since breast cancer nearly always presents itself in only one breast at a time. Nevertheless, any lump in your breast or armpit should be examined by a doctor. So best to make an appointment, OK? You need to know what you're dealing with here. Good luck - PJH
