Hi,
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....
