Font : A-A+

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor should I consult for an armpit lump?

You should consult a general surgeon.

2. When should I see a doctor for an armpit lump?

You should see a doctor as soon as you observe a lump in the armpit that does not respond to home remedies like warm compresses and painkillers. Seeing a doctor is especially important for women because an armpit lump can be an indication of breast cancer.

3. Can a lump in the armpit go away by itself?

This depends upon the cause. For example, a lump caused by a viral infection can resolve by itself. However, lumps due to cancer or lipomas do not go away by themselves; surgical intervention is required.

4. Can cancerous lumps be painful?

These may or may not be painful. Most cancerous lumps are hard and painless, while some may be painful.

5. Can deodorants cause armpit lumps?

Deodorants do not cause armpit lumps but antiperspirants can do so.
