I Found A Hard Lump In My 12 Year Old Dauthers Armpit She Says Its Been Ther A Year And It Dont Hurt. What Could It Be?

Answer

Could be an extra-large lymph node; pleae read our post on armpit lumps for more information. Next time she sees her family doctor for a physical or some other reason, have her point it out to him/her, and see what s/he says. At her age, breast cancer is so unlikely as to be virtually impossible; so there's no need to stress over that, though I would find out at some point what it is to set your mind at rest. Take care- PJH
