Hello Sulis, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Lumps in the armpits can indeed be an advanced symptom of a breast cancer if the cancer has grown more widespread, causing spread to the lymph nodes in the armpits, but it should be understood that a lump in the armpit is not a main symptom / initial of breast cancer .
The main symptom of a breast cancer is the emergence of a lump (generally hard if pressed) on the breast (can be right or left) which is getting bigger and bigger (especially if enlargement occurs very quickly), which can be accompanied by several other complaints / symptoms such as:
Lumps easily bleed Changing breast shape Skin on the breast looks like orange peel Withdrawal of the breast nipple Blood loss from the breast nipple Drastic weight loss Complaints like you experience in the gap between your breasts are not a common symptom arising from breast cancer, but can be a skin reaction due to pressure, contact dermatitis or a fungal skin infection.
If the lump is only in the armpit, the complaint can be caused by several other possible conditions such as:
Inflammation / infection of the sweat glands in the skin of the armpit area Perdangan / infection of the armpit hair Inflammation of the lymph nodes Although at this time your complaint is gone, it is still advisable to check the complaint directly to the doctor for further evaluation of the possibility- possible causes of the lump, including the possibility of breast cancer (especially if you are 40-70 years old). In addition, the doctor will also help determine what therapy should be given to you.
In the meantime, besides going to the doctor, you are also advised to:
Avoiding armpit hair shaving too often Keep your armpit area clean, especially if you are sweating Avoid using deodorants that are considered irritating to your skin Conducting a breast self-examination (breast self-examination) every 7-10 days after menstruation Avoid using a tight bra Avoid using drugs any medication without a clear recommendation from a doctor Perform routine breast cancer screening if you are 40 years or older, discuss with your doctor about what and how the screening is done. Hope it helps.
