How old are you? Since how long have you noticed the lumps?
Underarm lumps are axillary lymph nodes which could be enlarged secondary to infection or even trauma. They are usually enlarged when a new deodorant is used, after shaving or waxing the underarm area.
Have you got an ultrasound done as yet and have you got a clinical examination got done by a physician? This would help in coming to a confirmed diagnosis.
This does not look to be cancerous, especially if it has resolved by itself.
Let us know if you have any more doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing.
HI there- I am 28 years old-I only noticed the lump last month-i had just stopped birth control pills and had an extremely bad chestcold at the time too-the lump went away as soon as I stopped playing with it-i tend to be very anxious over my health and couldn't stop touching it for about a week-as soon as i did it went away-i can't even feel where it was now. I am to assume cancerous lumps don't just go awy by themselves. Thank you. NOw that I look at where it was again i don't even think it cold have been a lymph node-it wasn't directly in my armpit or anything. I think it was regular breast tissue that i probably aggravated by touching it wasy too much. What are your thoughts.
