Re: lump in armpit
When I was 13, I too had a lump in my armpit. It didnt hurt but got bigger and bigger and bigger, until it was the size of a baseball. I had to have it surgically drained, and they had to put gauze in it and each week pull it out so that it would heal from the inside out. It wasnt painful until after surgury when they had to pull out the gauze after it had already scabbed over. and restuff it with more gauze.
The dr. said it was just a swollen lymph node. They are not sure why It happened, but it was "easily corrected".
Hope this helps. Good luck.
