A friend has a lump that is by her underarm but not under her armpit. It is movable and more towards the inside end of her breast by your rib bone or whatever that bone under your arm is. What can it be?

It could be anything from a cyst to something more serious. I would recommend she have it evaluated by her doctor as any new lump anywhere could be a concern or it could be nothing. It's worth having peace of mind so I would suggest an MD visit. Take care.
