No he didn't sound overly concerned he just said it should go away in 2 weeks but it's been 2 weeks now and it's still there. It's weird as sometimes I can feel it and other times I struggle to find it. I've poked around under my armpit so much now I sometimes feel like I'm imagining there's more than there is if you know what I mean! I think I'm going to bite the bullet and phone the doctors next week. Let me know how you get on and if you speak to the doctor. Xxx
I found a lump in my armpit about three weeks ago. I finally saw a gp last week and was prescribed antibiotics. She seemed very positive these would clear it up. I have now completed the course and the lump is still there. I'm really worried now. We have a telephone consultation again tomorrow and I'm dreading it. How is everyone else?
Has it grown at all? I've had mine 2 weeks now and it's not grown at all. Still the same small round ball, firm but it moves between my fingers when I hold it. Mines still the size of one of those small silver balls you'd decorate cakes with. So it's pretty small. I'm giving it another week or so before I get an appointment.
Let me know how you get on with your doctor. It's good your doctor was so confident and not concerned. I know how scary it is, I've the same anxiety xxxx
I said this to hubby. The more I feel it the bigger it feels. So I've had days of feeling it constantly and I swear it's made it swell up in the area. If I leave it a few days it often feels smaller. It may not be but it feels it.
It was a telephone appointment and I was very disheartened by the outcome. Without even seeing how the lump looks now I have been prescribed a second week of antibiotics (a different one this time). I asked repeatedly for someone to have another look but was told there was nothing more they would do until I had completeted the course of antibitiotics. I really feel that this is more serious than the gp thinks.
thanks for asking by the way!
Oh I'm sorry. I understand your worries as I'm thinking the same and I'm trying to monitor mine without panicking, it's hard not to worry it's more serious. If your GP has felt it before that's reassuring because they'd surely not expect you to wait if they thought for one minute it needed checking over.
Mines painless so if my GP gave me antibiotics I'd probably wonder if any point in taking them so i understand why you're disheartened. Do you have to go back after the course of antibiotics?
i have lump ( rubbery and painless and movable . I think size not grown)in my both armpits since 18 months .. i never thought this was consern about something .

This is exactly what I have under my right armpit I’m 27 y/o.. I can put my fingers around it it doesn’t feel like it’s attached to anything does it ? , and it’s just like under the skin surface. no pain atall like one of those silver ball things that is correct but smaller then a pea. It doesn’t move either I’ve had mine now around 18 months even longer, I got checked out by a dermatologist my dr referd me around 5 months ago. I forgot the name he called it but it isn’t dangerous. I am going to go back though just to put my mind at ease! I have the exact same lump under the skin in my groin to! Let me know what your G.P says please x
