Question: Lump in armpit

 Landers - Thu May 03, 2007 7:10 pm

I am a 17 year old female. I haven't had any surgeries. My Mom has Fiber Malaga, I am not on any medication right now. A day ago I noticed a lump in my arm that is painful, my whole arm is sore. Sicne yesterday its gotten bigged and red, its undermy skin and round, i'm very confused any sort of response would be greatly appreciated!

User avatar I apologize for not responding to your post sooner. I did not see it until now.

Your symptoms sound a bit like a skin infection possibly with an underlying abscess. I would advise you to have this evaluated. Especially if you are still having symptoms. These infections often need antibiotics to clear up.

Best wishes.
