Armpit lumps are a common complaint and are not usually a serious condition. Lumps that arise can generally be felt, if they are large, they can feel stuck in the arm, and can cause pain. This condition can also be accompanied by other symptoms such as redness of the skin, pus, or fever.
The lumps in the armpit can be caused by a variety of possible causes, such as:
Irritation / allergy due to using a razor or deodorant Swollen lymph nodes (generally due to infection / inflammation of the surrounding tissue) Boils Cysts (fluid filled bags) Infection with lipoma virus (lumps filled with fat) Fibroadenoma (benign tumor) Malignancy or cancer
If complaints persist, it's a good idea to see a doctor so that they can be examined directly. The doctor will perform a physical examination (through observation and touch) and recommend supporting tests if deemed necessary (such as blood tests, ultrasound, CT scan, biopsy) to explore further. Thus the cause can be identified, so that you can be given the right treatment according to the basic condition.
In the meantime, to reduce the pain that arises, you can apply warm compresses to the lumps to relieve inflammation. If you feel very painful, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol. It's best to avoid using deodorants and shavers to prevent further irritation. You are also advised to avoid the habit of squeezing or massaging the lumps so that they do not further trigger inflammation.
