So I have had a swollen lymph in my armpit for over 2 months now. At first it began right after shaving but when it did not go away after a couple of days I felt around and there was a hard knot in my armpit that is not present in the other armpit. It was painful at first and then stopped hurting but was still there. Two months later and it still has not gone away or decreased in size. Today I noticed I had a pain in my armpit again and when I looked in the mirror there is a red spot and it is tender to the touch where the redness is. For about a week now I stopped using store bought antiperspirant afraid that might be causing it to stay inflamed and switched to baby powder to help with the moisture issue and do to my other issue I have been on high dose of ibuprofen for a couple of weeks. I had benign fibrocystic lumps in my breast when I was a teenager that went away but have felt some small nodules around the base of one of my breasts recently. Lastly I have HSV I & II and HPV and had precancerous cells removed from my cervix a few years back. Is it likely this is related to malignancy/cancer?
