welcome to Health care magic.
1.It could be recurrence of the lump which you have operated earlier.
2.But generally the underarm lumps cause with pain and fever, but you have not mentioned any thing similar.
3.The other lumps seen in the axillary region are lymph nodal enlargement which will be seen in case of infection in the post operative site, underlying medical condition infections / inflammation.
4.An ultrasound of the lump will help in analysing the lump origin and extensions.
5.Recommend you to have appointment with your GP and get the needful investigations done.
Hope it helps you. Wish you a good health.
Anything to ask ? do not hesitate. Thank you
