A Lump In The Armpit That Feels Piercing Pain?
I want to ask. I am still a girl I have had lumps in the armpits for years but just didn’t enlarge. But sometimes it hurts. On press it also hurts. And sometimes a sharp pain in the breast. The pain sometimes takes sometimes only a few minutes. What is the characteristic of breast cancer?
Hello Seny, thank you for asking.
In the armpits there are several types of glands, among which are the sweat glands and lymph nodes. In addition there are also hair follicles. All of these glands and follicles can become enlarged due to infection. In addition there is also the possibility of a tumor in the gland. If the lump has been years and not enlarged, then the possibility of the lump is a benign tumor.
Breast cancer is generally characterized by lumps on the uneven surface of the breast, can not be moved on touch, pain, the surface of the skin looks like an orange peel, sometimes sores occur on the skin, and discharge from the nipple (blood or pus).
Consult with your doctor about this. Your doctor may need to do a blood sample, mammography, ultrasound, or tissue biopsy. His actions will be adjusted to the results of the examination. In the meantime, try not to press or massage the area and keep the area hygiene.
Hope this answer can help. Regards.
