Worried 😩 I got a pea sized ball in my arm pit

Mar 28, 2017 6:31 AM

Hi all I'm abit worried as under my arm is tender and lastnight I found a sore lump and also pea sized ball that's not sore
Iv made a docs appointment but just wondering if anyone else has had one and could it be just yet another symptom of fibro

What other symptoms do you have claw? It could be nothing but I'm glad that youre doing the right thing and getting it checked

I have shoulder pain on the same arm and a pain in my back on top of all the usual pains
Just worried because I did the wrong thing and googled it
That says it can be next to nothing or Breast cancer
I'm sure the doctors will know soon as he feels it but it's just worried me a lot

It could be a lot of things and most of them are nothing to worry about. For example it could be a cyst in which case they might drain it for you etc. They will likely do an ultrasound to be certain of everything

Thank you that reassures me a lot :)

I'm here if you need to talk to anyone, I know it can be worrying when you come across something new. The main thing is to stay away from Google and think about the best case scenario

I've had those before and get them from time to time. Mine are filled with fluid.

Don't panic until you need to panic. Stress just makes everything worse. Basically it just puts your entire body on high alert for probably nothing. It could be just about anything including a little cyst, clogged oil duct, ingrown infected hair, ect. Go see your doctor and try to chill. Let us know what you find out. The Internet can be our best friend and worst enemy.

Claw, from time to time I get calcium deposits under my armpit and when I pop it and clean my armpit and move on. Yes, I agree with the others, stay away from Google.

Same here Claw, what did your doctor say? I hope it's something that's easily treated and not too serious

I'm hoping you've been to the doctor and had your mind put at ease. When I had this it was a swollen gland and mid suspected fibro flare.

I had a cyst that was from an overactive sweat gland. Went away on its own too.
