I have had a lump in my armpit which is got infected.

hello, recently I have had a lump in my armpit which I thought was probably just infection and would go away however it has been a few days and now the upper half of one of my aerolas has turned red, painful, warm and swollen. I think I might have an infected montgomery gland however not sure because of the lump in the armpit. I d be grateful for any advice, thanks.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It is possible you have that infection or it can be a ductal inflammation. The lump in your armpit can be lymph node enlargement because of possible infection. Better to get examined by a Surgeon for proper diagnosis and management. You can apply warm compress on the breast for now. Drink plenty of water. Take a pain killer under medical supervision.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
It appears like you have infection of axillary tail of Spence . The Tail of Spence is an extension of the tissue of the breast which extends into the axilla. The Axillary Tail of Spence is a normal finding in most women. The amount and distribution of the breast tissue that courses up towards the armpit varies from woman to woman. Infected montogomery gland is another possibility. consult a surgeon/gynecologist for management.
