what does a lump in the armpit feel like?
i was just wonder what an enlarged lymph node in the armpit would feel like. i had a lump in the armpit for a few weeks now (on the arm area of the armpit, not the chest). it was pretty large and there was a small pus bubble on it (like a pimple). i popped the bubble and pus came out. the lump is still there, a little smaller in size, but its pretty hard and painless. the lump seems to be right under the skin (i can pinch the skin with the lump in it). i can feel the lump without pressing. i've just been worried because i've also been having night sweats the past few days. i had some shortness of breath but i had an chest x-ray and everything was normal. thanks!
