Iv Got A Lump Under My Right Armpit And It Feels Like A Bruise What Is It

Answer

You might have an enlarged lymph node that is trying to fight off an infection or a cyst or a fatty tumor or any of a host of other possibilities including cancer. If this lump has lasted longer than a couple of weeks, it would be a good idea to have a doctor check it. Don't panic about this because the chances are it won't be cancer, but it's important to take action to find out what is going on.
