I am 35 weeks pregnant. I have noticed a lump under my armpit - it is not visable to look at, however, it does leak clear liquid when i apply pressure - should i go to my gp or could this be something to do with milk ducts?

welcome to our HCM..
According to your complaint....
It is not milk duct..,
Because after delivery only..,
The hormone prolactin will secrete..,
It is essential for milk ejection.... ...
hence my impression is..,
it could be Lymph gland secretion...
(clear lequid means is serous secretion)...
So go for further ruled out the any other pathology..
For example common is Tuberculosis.., and Lymphadenitis ..
O.k consult Gynaecologist..
she will go to systemic way ....ok bye..good luck
