Glands Under The Skin In The Armpits?
night, I am 23 years old.
Hello, good night Isranur ...
Previously, it should be noted that the lump in the armpit is not always a gland. To determine whether the lump is a gland or not, it requires a direct examination.
Underarms can be caused by a variety of conditions, including:
Hidradenitis supurativa (HS), which is an inflammation of the sweat glands due to blockage of the gland. HS generally occurs in the skin that often experience friction, such as underarm and groin enlargement of lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy), which generally occurs because parts of the body that are near the gland are experiencing fibroadenoma infection, which is a benign tumor which is an abnormal growth of fibrous tissue lipoma, which is a collection of fatty tissue that accumulates under the surface of the skin. Lipomas can occur anywhere in the entire body, including underarm epidermoid cysts, or cysts (fluid-filled sacs) found under the skin malignancy in the lymph system (lymphoma) malignancy in the breast and so on
To be able to diagnose the disease from complaints that you experience, it requires a direct examination. Therefore, we suggest that you see a doctor (or to be more specific with a surgeon). The doctor will conduct a question and answer around complaints, conduct a general physical examination, and a specific examination of the lump (ie checking the shape, size, texture, consistency, and mobility of the lump). If the examining doctor feels the need, then you might be advised to do a supporting examination, such as an ultrasound examination, blood tests, mammography, or tissue sampling (biopsy). Considering you have felt this complaint a long time ago, we hope that you will not delay to see a doctor.
That's all, hope it helps :)
