Small lump in armpit



At 26, I’ve just been referred to the breast clinic to have a lump checked out that I have had for around 1 month.  It is pea-sized at the top inside of my armpit and hard.  I was told it’s not artificial as it doesn’t come up with the skin and as I have a very strong family history of BC was best to get it checked out.  I have no signs of troublesome lumps in my breast and curious to see if anyone has experienced something similar or whether I’m potentially working myself up over nothing. 


I look forward to hearing from you!
