I have a question..

I've had a lump under my left armpit and it's a pretty good size. It's in the middle of my armpit and it hurts really bad. It feels like it's deep under the skin too. Is there anything to be worried about? It happened after I shaved.

We have lymph nodes all over our body. When they swell up that usually means that you have an infection . Like when the lymph noded on the neck areswollen it usually is throat related . The  ones on your under arm could be breast related. Or just a cyst. Anyway go see your Dr. Good luck . cat33

Check the net for lymph nodes under arm.
