1 Answer:

Hello Mitul, thanks for your question


Armpit lumps can be caused by various conditions or diseases. Unfortunately you didn't clearly describe the lump you were referring to above. Here are some of the causes of lumps in the armpit:

allergic reaction or irritation, for example due to deodorant or improper razors
cyst, which is a fluid-filled bag or solid mass
bacterial infections, such as folliculitis, abscess, hidradenitis suppurativa
skin tags, resembling warts on the skin
swollen lymph nodes (KGB) often accompany a viral infection
fibroadenoma, a benign tumor of fibrous tissue
cancer, either in the lymph node or in the breast

Cellulite is a fat indentation that appears under the skin, especially in the area of ​​the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and lower legs. Generally, cellulite is experienced by women.


Regarding your question above, each lump requires an examination directly by a doctor. If needed, the doctor can recommend additional examinations, such as blood tests, ultrasound underarms and / or breasts, to biopsy. After confirming the diagnosis, the doctor will determine the most appropriate treatment steps. In the meantime, it is recommended that you:

avoid touching or pressing the lump
warm compresses to the area of ​​the bump to reduce discomfort
take pain relievers such as paracetamol
for the time being, avoid using deodorants and shavers

Hopefully this is useful
