under my arm and im not sure what to think or what to do about it. i looked online what it could mean and it says breast cancer or a blocked sweat gland. ill tell ya what it hurts to put my arm down. i told my mom and she told me to tell my obgyn when i go see her for the results of my biopsy she had done to check for cervical cancer. but shouldnt i ask my regular dr about it ? does and obgyn deal with that kind of stuff. im not sure what to do :-/

    Hi there, If it hurts, that's a good sign. Probably just a swollen lymph node. I have one under my arm right appeared during pregnancy and grew to the size of a grape. I told the doctor before I left the hospital and they had me get an ultrasound on it. By the time I got to see my family doctor, it had shrunk, so when I told him that, he was not concerned, and also the ultrasound showed it was nothing.

     I would show it to your OB/gyn doctor on this Thurs. visit. It doesn't sound like cancer.

    Cancerous lumps don't hurt. I would just see your regular doctor if you're concerned.
