Thank you for posting your query.

A lump in axilla is common finding and normally is not cancerous.

You have been examined by a doctor who suggested the same.

Please get an ultrasound of breast and axilla done to be very sure.

A normal cyst can remain in place for several years without causing discomfort.

You may safely plan a pregnancy if your cyst is normal and the breast ultrasound is normal too.

And I do not think the lump is causing any delay.

Continue taking folic acid for fetal well being.

Hope I have answered your query. Do write back to me if you have further queries.
