painful lump in armpit
hello. my boyfriend discovered a painful lump in his armpit last night that has me deeply concerned. he is 23 years old and has not been sick or ill for the past few months. the lump is solid but moveable; and approximately the size of a penny. also there is quite a bit of drainage. he wants me to help him drain it (which i don't mind) but i'm anxious to do so. i don't want to make it worse, or spread the infection. i'm trying to convince him to go to the doctor, but he is reluctant and stubborn. if anyone could give me more information to ease my worries, i would so greatly appreciate it. thanks kindly!!

I strongly suggest that he go to a doctor. Do not tamper with it.
