Help!!!just Found A Lump Almost Like A Largepeanut,after Waxing, Sensitiveto Touch & Hurts!!

Age 19.

Five days ago waxed my underarm, the next day there was a pimple , burst it, and there was puss and no in grown hair.... after that, my underarm has been swollen and there's a lump the size of a peanut,and it's hard.

IS this cancer... or this this an infection! Please HELP!

Answer

Aaqsa, don't panic - sounds to me like a possible infection that's made one of your lymph nodes swell up. Whatever it is, you should have it checked out - go ahead and make a doctor's appointment. In the meantime - take deep breaths, and stay calm. Chances are it'll heal up soon. AND - it's always good to get underarm lumps checked out, so you'll be doing the right thing. Good luck- PJH
