I have read your query with diligence. It seems a bit ambiguous to me. Please let me know a few more details, so that I could suggest you accordingly.

What is the place that showed up on Mammo radiologist? Is it a finding on the Mammogram? Or is it an area on your breast causing the problem?

Also, I assume there is some kind of a pus filled pocket under your arm and that there was something that was removed by the Dermatologist.

Going by your current history, it seems like there is an abscess in the under arm area that needs effective antibiotics, and surgical drainage, if required.

It would up to weeks for the entire lesion to go away and for you to get back to normalcy.

Please let me know in detail. I would like to help you to the best of my knowledge.

Get well soon.
