Hard lumps under skin in armpits, bleeding, recurring condition. Cancer?

I am a 53 year old female. For the last couple of months I have been getting hard lumps under the skin under both of my armpits. When I squeeze them they are very painful but nothing comes out except blood . One will go away but shortly after I find another. At the present time, I have 2 under my left arm and 1 under my right arm. Could this be cancer?

hi abhart,
no this is not a cancer, these are simple boils due to pulling of hairs.
you can use ibupfren plus paracetamol or diclofenac plus paracetamol combination for pain .
Also do not try to squeeze them.
If pus present use antibiotics for it.
