Painful Lump Under Armpit E-08 & I-12's : Mamii 2 kids; Las Vegas, Nevada 1266 posts

I noticed today that I have a lump on my armpit. It does hurt when I touch it or stretch my arm.
Has anyone had this?
A page I found online said that woman should talk to doctor because it could be breast cancer??
I am exclusively pumping.

Might be an infection. I had a weird infection like that when my milk was drying up.

Where at? Like how low? I had a lump (lymphnode) swell up in my armpit like in the area where the hai grows and it turned out to be staph. I had to have it lanced and take antibiotics. Sucked but better than cancer!!!

Oh no!! Did you want your milk to dry or it just happened on it's own?

I wanted it to, but a medication I was taking sped up the process, my body couldn't deal an things got a bit hairy.

Did he see a doctor? Did he take anything?

I just looked on the mirror and it's about 8lumps. When I touch them they feel deep. Like a clogged breast duct.

That's probably what it is- you may need antibiotics. Try a warm compress for now, until you can go in.
