Ok, so I'm 22 years old. I shaved my armpits about 3 days ago. Today they were very itchy. As I was scratching, I felt a lump right in the middle of my armpit. It's about the size of a pea. It does not hurt, not even when I touch it. When I graze my fingertip across it, even just barely, I can feel it. What could this be? Cancer? What should I do? I checked myself and there are no lumps anywhere else near my breasts. Also, I have been having a metal like taste in my mouth for the last few days. Could the two things be related somehow?
With the metal taste, I have brushed and used mouthwash, flossed, everything I can think of...still confused about it.
