Lumps in breast and under armpit

Two years ago I had to have a lumpectomy on my right breast the doctor removed three lumps that were benign.  I also had lumps in my left breast, but they were smaller than the right side.  I was suppose to get them removed later.  I put off going back to the doctor, and now they are a lot bigger and my breast is larger than the right side I have had to go up a size in bras.  I also have lumps under my left armpit, they are tender, but not painful and the breast is not painful or tender.  Could this be cancer?  


Thank you

Dear BJones26137, It is impossible to say whether or not these are cancer based on the above information.  It could very well be this is not a cancer, but without further checking you can't know for sure.  These lumps would need further evaluation to determine what they are.
