    It could be a bunch of different things it could be, including a small chance of breast cancer among them. Don't sit and worry any more, get it checked as soon as you can. Take care, Sharon

    It is scary to find a lump. You have lots of lymph nodes under your arm and breast cancer cells can travel to them. Most lumps are are NOT cancerous, however, PLEASE get it checked right away. Let is know how you make out. Take care..

    I hate to say that but most likely it is... Usually it starts from breast and then travels first to armpit. Check your breast and see If you feel anything there. I found out lump on my armpit first but never thought of checking my breast. First thing I did that I went to my physician and she felt something in my breast. So then I did mammogram and biopsy so results were positive. Go and see your doctor as soon as possible and check your breast. I hope it isn't what you and I think. Wish you best of results.

    There really is no way to tell until you go get it checked. I would encourage you to go see your doctor as soon as you can.

    Don't play guessing games. Don't wait. Go in and have it checked. You will rest much easier knowing exactly what you are dealing with and then you can move on. Good luck.
