Lumps in armpit

For almost a month I've had mini lumps in my armpit.
Showed GP told me she could feel one and it was a sebaceous cyst. Sent me off.

Now I've got them on both sides. And there are many. And I can feel that there's something there just from having my arms by my side.

I don't want to go back to doc really since I was told it was ok before. Also I'm there enough anyway with a chronic condition. There's never time to discuss anything else.

Any idea what this is ? Does anyone else have this?

I know you don't want to hear this but I'd go back to the GP, as soon as possible.

Could the lumps be linked to your chronic condition?

Ok. I probably need to be told!

It's not related as condition isn't physical.

Thanks for replying

You must go back, I have similar and was referred to the breast clinic. Mine turned out to be caused by hormones and I now recognise the pattern of them growing and subsiding with my monthly cycle. So no problem but having the reassurance was great. Hopefully yours have a similarly benign explanation.
