    Large Lump in Armpit

    We have been worrying over this for the last month or so with regards to my wife. Been to the doc so many times with numerous tests run.

    The end result?

    Surgery on the 20th.

    Let's hope Bhudda shines on us...

    If it was serious they'd have her in before the 20th I'm sure. Good luck.

    My family's thoughts are with your family mate.

    I often get lumps in the arm pit but they disappear after a month after taking antibiotics.

    Blocked sweat glans is the doctors explanation and they are sore as hell when I have them.

    If it has only been there for a month, then the prognosis is most likely good. What tests have they run?

    Not to scare you but that's where my breast cancer started. I was the one who had put off getting it checked because I had had a large cyst in my right breast for a long time and I thought it was related to that.

    Seeing that it's only a month, this probably means that something is going on in the axillary lymph nodes. Again, if it is caught early, as it looks like it is, then the prognosis is good.

    What they will do after the surgery is examine the nodes and the surrounding tissue to determine what the issue is. If you or your wife need any support, you can PM me.

    One piece of advice that I received from doctors and nurses at that time was to avoid going on the internet to find out more as it can only stress you even more.

    All the best mate, fingers crossed you have found it and are dealing with it early enough for it not to be anything serious.

    Best wishes and speedy recovery to your missus Hillbilly.

    A friend of mine had lymph glands swell like that in his armpits and surgery sorted it.
    That was 22 years ago when he was 50. He's stll kicking around.

    The armpits are prone to lumps, cysts, etc most usually from sweat glands / pores getting blocked up, like LT posted above^.

    Here's hoping its nothing more than than. Best of luck to you and the missus.

    May Buddha be shining on your wife and family, may the surgery be successful, and may any resulting test results be in your favor.

    The tests today showed a 5cm lump growth deep in the body, to deep to do a biospy. We are now going to ask for an MRI, about the only test that has not been done.

    My wife is 45 but looks much younger!

    I have always kidded my wife about not knowing any of our pin numbers or other banking details (I just get money from her when I want some). Today, she said that it was time for me to know.

    Laugh if you want to, but I ain't...

    HB, I believe that the very latest tests it's possible to get for breast cancer determine the genes responsible in the tumor. This is advantageous because different tumor gene types respond (or not) to different drugs.
    I am not sure if these tests are available in Thailand.

    All I can say to you Hilly is keep your spirits up and particularly as you don't know what the final diagnoses is as yet.

    It may be a benign sweat cyst for all you know so please remain positive.

    By getting yourself down will only bring the rest of the family down and as the head honcho at home you must lead the way and be strong.

    ^^^^No laughing matter, hillbilly, I always ask my wife for all these details whenever she travels back to Europe on her own or is going diving.

    I keep my fingers crossed that it is not as serious as it sounds.
