Having a lump in armpit after pregnancy. Is there a non invasive procedure to dissolve the lump? - Online Doctor Chats
My query is about my wife
How can I help you?
She has developed a tissue lump in her armpit, after the delivery of our 2nd baby
Proceed with your query
is there a non-invasive procedure to dissolve such a lump
Since when did she notice this lump?
How big is the lump?
since she was breast feeding
it is the size of a walnut
it is not hard,
we showed it to a gynec
and she said that this is extra tissue
and because of the pregnance, some people get it
what do you sugest
If this is a skin tag (extra tissue) as your gynecologist predicted
or an axillary breast tisse
as your gynecologist predicted
non invasive procedure would not be able to take care of it.
It needs invasive treatment.
However whether or not it is something else like a lympnode swelling or an abnormal mass
ah ...my wife is very skeptical about any such invasive procedure...
can be excluded by a minor procedure like FNAC
Yes, i was coming to the same point...how do we ensure that this is not something critical
Wht is FNAC
I understand the apprehension and fear with regards to the treatment; but conventional medical line of treatment will not be able to treat this problem.
FNAC is a minor procedure just like giving an injection.
Before I proceed to explain further, I would like to know if this lump is under the skin
Is it like taking a sample of the tissue for testing
or there is a growth from the skin?
Yes it is under the skin
Ok if it is under the skin
then it is not a skin tag and FNAC would be an useful test.
ok, i understand the question, let me rephrase the answer...
The lump is under the skin, but the skin is quite loose in that area and it appears to be like an external growth
The test as I explained earlier is almost similar to an injection. Except that the injecting needle is slightly larger.
A sample of tissue would be collected through the needle
and studied under microscope.
This would confirm the nature and type of lump.
It is a minimally invasive procedure just like an ordinary injection.
Ok, is this a simple test and can it be done at a regular lab or hospital, or do we need to go to a speciality hospital for this
It requires help of a pathologist or a surgeon to collect the sample; the test can be done in an OPD
Hospitalization is not necessary.
ok... i will check with some hospitals here and get it done...
i have no further queries as of now
Thank you for your time
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
