i found a lump in my arm pit its small, i cant see it i can just feel it, i only noticed it as i could feel like sumthing was bruised all of a suddern, n when i felt it i could feel a small lump, but i had the impression that cancer lumps were painless??? i dunno really, im only 19 so i would seem to be too young for this kinda thing right???
You are correct that cancerous lumps rarely cause any pain. What you describe could be an enlarged lymph node. The cause could be one of several things ... one being an infection. This may also be an infected hair follicle. I would suggest that you see your Physician and have this ck.d out as some treatment may well be helpful. Regards ....
