I Had Found A Lump Under My Armpit. I Went To The Doctor She Told Me It Was A 1 To 2 Inch Lump

I went to the breast center... I need to get a mammogram and a ultrasound.. could this be cancer I am 39 years old.

Answer

Hi - This could indeed be cancer, but it's more likely it's any one of a number of other things, including a fibroadenoma, an infection... You're doing the right thing, getting tested to see what this is. While you're waiting for results, please read our post on armpit lumps; I think you'll find it useful. Good luck - PJH
