Hello, good night Nova.

Lump in the armpit can be caused by:

lymphadenopathy, namely enlarged lymph nodes (KGB) in the armpit. Can occur as a result of the body's defense against an ongoing infection (eg tuberculous lymphadenopathy) lymphadenitis, which is inflammation of the lymph nodes themselves. In this condition, in addition to a palpable lump, there is also fever, and pain when pressed by a lipoma, which is a collection of fatty tissue. This condition does not require medical treatment, unless the sufferer wants the lipoma not to appear hidradenitis suppurativa, this lump occurs due to blockage of the sweat glands, for example due to the use of deodorants, pulling armpit hair, etc. cystic warts, which are fluid-filled, painless sacs that are spread from a malignant condition (eg breast malignancy), this condition is usually accompanied by drastic weight loss. The danger or not of the complaints you experience, depends on the possibility of the underlying disease you are experiencing, but most lumps are harmless. To be sure, an in-person examination must be carried out, so I suggest that you see a doctor. The doctor may order blood lab tests, mammography, x-rays, or CT scans if needed. If the cause is infection then antibiotic therapy can be given. Surgery may be performed, depending on the results of the doctor's examination. Things you can do while waiting to see the doctor include: don't fiddle with lumps, keep your armpits and other body folds clean and dry, and don't use perfume or deodorant, or any ingredients that can irritate your armpits.

I hope this helps.
