    Hi - Since you've already had BC, you know the signs to watch for. A lump in the armpit could be an infected lymph node, or any number of things, including a symptom of breast cancer. Don't worry TOO much, best to call the doctor and get it looked at, OK? Just to find out what it is. Good luck - PJH
