i have a lump in my armpit every time i have my period, then eventually it will disappear.. but now that i'm five months pregnant, the lump in my armpit appears bigger and it doesn't disappear.. what should i do regarding this?
Breast lumps may occur normally in pregnancy, when the breasts are getting ready for lactation.A tail of breast tissue may extend into the armpit.
There is a variety of reasons why lumps appear in the axilla area.It could be a swollen lymph node due to infection or inflammation somewhere in the body.Given that you are pregnant, you should waste no time in securing a professional diagnosis just to make sure that there is nothing serious there okay?.
Best wishes to you and the baby....
