Lump in armpit

Hi I have had a lump come up in the side I had lymphnode clearance right in my armpit and I wondered how normal it was or if it’s happened to anyone else? I’ve already been referred to get it checked but I’m worrying.  Am I right in thinking it can’t be a swollen node as they removed them all from that side? x

Hi PJB43

A warm welcome to the forum.

Sounds as if you may have a “seroma” - not uncommon after breast and lymph node surgery. Am glad you have an appointment to have it checked. If it is a seroma, some resolve themselves, the fluid gradually becoming reabsorbed by the body. Some require  simply draining (aspirating) using a hypodermic needle to draw up and remove the excess fluid. A quick and painless procedure to have done and giving instant relief.

Let us know how you go on at your appointment.

Good luck with it, flower.  Delly xXx
