Lumps In The Armpits And Pain In The Ribs
Hello, good night. I want to ask, First, my mother has recently experienced 2 bumps in the armpit, but it does not feel painful … Is it dangerous? Currently my mother is 61 years old, and has a history of hypertension. Thank you for the explanation
Hello Irawati, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Armed lumps can be caused by several conditions such as:
Suppurative hidradenitis is inflammation that occurs in the sweat glands in the armpits.
An abscess (pus-filled lump) is an infection caused by bacteria, the infection causes a lump that contains pus, redness, heat and pain.
Cyst is a lump that contains fluid.
Lymphadenitis is an inflammation that occurs in the lymph node in the armpit, causing a bump in the armpit.
Lipomasu lump that contains fat tissue.
Keep in mind for pain in the chest like what, which part of the chest is experiencing pain, right or left, whether the pain is like being pricked or pressed, whether the pain spreads to the arms and back, whether the pain disappears after resting, whether the heart beats palpitations, whether cold sweat arises.
To find out the cause of the lumps felt and complaints of chest pain that arises, it's good to see a doctor. However, for the time being you are advised to stay at home due to a coronary virus outbreak in our country. Some things you can do at home are:
Avoid holding the lump
Compress lumps in the armpits with warm water 3-4x a day
Avoid excessive activity
Manage mood and stress conditions
Hope this helps, thank you.
