  • I get the same thing hun. infact, i have one at the moment. it feels very tender and hurts when i move my arm about or if i touch it. it's nothing to worry about, they are just swollen glands. under your arms you have lots of small sweat glands which can become inflamed. i find they flare up after i shave. not always.... just every now and again! x
  • I would ask the mw or nurse. I have had something like that before but cant remember what it was called! It was a blocked duct and it went away on its own. I don't think its anything to worry about but deffo mention it. Let us know how it goes xxx
  • could be a cyst (blocked pore) or a swollen gland and more than likely your mw/nurse will advise you to see a doc just incase.
  • Its most likely a swollen sweat gland or a wee cyst but youre doing the right thing asking the nurse to take a look at it for you

  • Ive got a couple of the same pea sized things in my right armpit. Went to the docs and they are cysts. When i was BF though my armpit swollen up and it was inflammed breast tissue.
