Hi,

Do you have any lumps in your breast tissue? Any bleeding or oozing from the nipples?

It is difficult to say otherwise, but this peas l\sized lump could also be a lymph node. The axilla or armpit has a dense network of lymph nodes and lymph vessels and it is likely it is one of them. However, if you may want to be sure you can visit your doctor who would, after an examination and tests, be able to tell you for sure if that is a breast cancer or an lymph node.

Please l;et us know if you may have any other queries. Also let us know what the doctor advises you.

Hope this helps.
