Bumps in axilla, seem to be sub-dermal, bumps are hard and fluid filled. Treatment?

Hi! Im medical student and my friend living abroad is asking me a question. I need a consult, because Im not sure what to tell her. She is 21, female. She complains about bumps in her axilla , radius about 1 cm, nonprominent, seems to be in subdermal tissue . Its tough, feels like filled with liquid. She tried to evacuate it and it was difficult, but little of pus came out. She is concerned about cancer , but I thing it seems like atheroma . She would go to see a doctor, but she is abroad for a school term and doesnt really want to experience foreign medical care (insurance and stuff). What would you tell her? Thanks a lot, Tereza

It looks like an infected sebaceous cyst? One is never sure unless one gets examined
The breast has to be examined for a source of infection or mass.
Tell her she MUST see a doctor - general surgeon. It is wiser and better see than wait - at least it will re-assure. No alternative
Good luck
