Hi kshadeck
thanks for coming to HCM
Lump under arm can be a Lymph node which can be due to various reasons like infection, malignancy, reactive lymphadenitis etc...

diagnosis can be done by a simple test called FNAC and everything will be clear....

meet your doctor with above said report...

best wishes
