Tingling in arm that wakes from sleep. Lump near armpit. See a doctor?

my left arm has pain and tingling that wakes me from sleep. Just showered and noticed that I have about a one inch lump above and behind armpit. Forgot to mention that when I hold my grandson(22 lbs) this same arm goes numb. I am 43 yr old female. Should I consult my family doctor or physician that performs my mammograms.

Thanks for writing here.

Any lump or mass on any site of body after 40 should never be neglected.It will be better to consult your doctor.

Tingling and numbness can be due to some neurological disorders.You need to take nerve vitamins like pyridoxine and vitamin b12.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
