Hump in armpit, squishy, no family history of breast cancer. Any help?

Hello, my name is Tabatha I am 30yr old and I just noticed a small hump in the top to middle section of my left armpit! I try pressing on it but it doesn t seem like I am feeling anything different! No hard ball not even really a squishy lump but I do rub my fingers accrossed it and I can feel something there? Is this something I should be getting checked?? No Fam history of breast cancer and I don t really ever do self exams although I know I should! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Ps. No pain either, concerned bc I just noticed it and was thinking maybe it hasn t fully developed yet! As I am a mommy of three small children I like to Keep an eye on things!!

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
As you suspect, it is wise to rule out cancer of the breast by getting examined by a doc.
There are other minor causes, but it is wise to get examined early and get well soon.
