I was blow drying my hair yesterday morning when I saw in the mirror that my right armpit looked swollen and there was a clear visible bump. I started to push on it and I felt a small lump the size of a pea. It doesnt hurt but later that day I had some burning sensations on the side of my breast and into my right breast as well. I woke up this morning and it's still there..again no pain when I squeeze it but I am gettign ocassional burning sensations. My mom said she went through the same exact thing a few months ago. Her doctor said they were fatty lumps and eventually they did go away on their own. I have an appointment for tomorrow but I am scared out of my mind. Does anyone have any suggestions or can relate and how do I keep myself from panicking? Tomorrow is sooo far away.
