Hi -- My sis had the same issue -- they were enlarged lymph nodes, it's the bodies way of fighting infection, they enlarge  & are supposed to get smaller, in her case they did not, and she had to have some minor surgery, but not a big deal.
Go to your DOC to get it checked out...

I have huge armpit lumps and I have been having them since childhood. It is growing a little with time and now they are approx the size of a lemon. I have never been able to wear sleeveless clothes as it looks so weird. I am very worried about it, it doesnt really pain much. sometimes a little, more often not, I want to get rid of it, please advice what do I do?
