Re: Armpit
Apr 11, 2007
I went to my doctor. She thinks it's a swollen lymph node. She doesn't think it's anything to worry about. She checked my breasts and didn't find anything. I'm having my yearly mammogram in May and she wants me to go back to her that week and if this lump is still there, she'll send me to a specialist and maybe have a biopsy done on it.

Isn't 6 weeks too long to wait and not do anything?

Is there anything I can do to help it go away? I'm not going to shave as much under my arm. I shave every other day. Maybe I'll shave once a week. She said it's like when you have a cold and the lymph nodes in your neck swells. That's just like under your arm. I really never heard that your lumph nodes under your arm can swell (causing a lump) from shaving. Anyone heard of that? I never had any problems before. I just hope this lump goes away.
