Lumps under right armpit.

19 Jun 2019 23:48

About 3.5 weeks ago I found a lump under my arm. It is oval in shape, hard and about the size of a grape (or slightly smaller). A week ago I went to my GP, she examined the lump and my breast and told me it was a swollen gland. She said if it hadn't gone down in a month I should go back. However last night in the shower I found a second lump under the same arm, this one is a little bit smaller than the first. I have had a good feel under my left arm and there are no lumps under that one, and I haven't noticed any other lumps anywhere else. So my question is has this happened to anyone else and it turned out to be nothing? Do you think I should go back to the gp sooner now I have found a second one?

Hello Jem09, 

I think given you have found a second lump under the same arm, it would be a good idea to go back to the GP and get it checked out. Your doctor will be in the best position to tell you what it is so don't hesitate to book an appointment. If you prefer you can also ask to see a different doctor just to get a second opinion. You can find out how to do this here

Best of luck for your appointment I hope it all goes well for you.
