Is it a small lump more like a big spot in your armpit? I've got one in each armpit since age 16. now in my 40s. They are small cysts. Best to get it checked out though but most likely nothing to worry about wink

I know your stomach churns when you feel something like this. I would have it looked at by your doctor. No lump should be ignored. It could be absolutely nothing. Have you noticed any other symptoms, puckering or dimpling, inverted nipples, discharge . I would go to the Dr just to be sure and keep your eye on it. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 8 years ago so I know how you feel. I'm very well now. Everyone has lumpy breasts at different times if the months so it's important to know what your boobs feel like normally. Xxxx

Thanks - no other symptoms. Under the skin, moveable lump, feels like a gland about 6 from under my armpit. In a good position as I work in a private hospital and have easy access to surgeons. Will grab one of them today. Cancer just seems everywhere at the moment sad not that im thinking I have cancer but in the past 6 months it has affected so many of the people I know.

Just a an update, saw surgeon today, had ultrasound. Just swollen glands, they asked if I had anything else going on. I said just this bad rash on my back. Which was then seen by the dermatologist who diagnosed shingles grin
